I’ve been making J-jo little pencil boxes (the ones for 49 cents at Walmart) to act out songs, poems, and books he loves. Two I have made so far are Ask Mr. Bear and “The Farmer in the Dell.”
Ask Mr. Bear
I put in a Playmobil boy and woman, and all the animals listed in the story. I used animals from our Montessori grammar farm and the bear came from one of our animal Toobs. J-jo loves acting out the story.
“The Farmer in the Dell”
This is a song in one of the Sonlight P4/5 weeks. We watched a youtube video of kids playing along with the song and since we don’t have enough kids in our family to play out the song, I gathered together a farmer, farmer wife, boy, and the animals from the song. We didn’t have a rat or a cheese, so we got creative with a mini plastic dog to stand in for the rat and a piece of Lego for the cheese.
