We read "Mister Seahorse" by Eric Carle. Children participated in read aloud activities as we discussed how various male, ocean animals carry and protect their eggs and/or children. We discussed similarities and differences among the sea creatures in the story. We decided the best similarity they all had, was that they were great Daddy's! We discussed the fact that Father's Day is coming up - what Daddy's do for each of us and how to show them we love them for it - and agreed upon a wonderful Father's Day present! :0)
The children enjoyed painting their sea horses, and using fine motor skills to decorate with dot markers and stickers.
