Story: Grumpy Monkey

Grumpy Monkey: Lang, Suzanne, Lang, Max: 9780553537864: Books

Esta historia trata de un Chimpance que siempre estaba de mal humor. Todos los animales le dieron consejos de que hacer para sentirse mejor, pero solo se molesto mas. Al final encontro un amigo que tambien estaba de mal humor, y los dos se acompanaron y se sintieron un poquito mejor. El mensaje para los ninos es; que a veces todos nos sentimos malhumorados y queremos estar a solas, y eso esta bien. Todos los sentimientos son validos!

Song: If You’re Grounchy and You Know It

When I Am Grumpy, I can… | Cuando yo estoy de mal humor, puedo…

  1. Count to ten | Contar hasta 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

  3. Go for a Walk | Ir a Caminar
  4. Read a Book | Leer un Libro
  5. Hug | Dar un Abrazo
  6. Eat or Drink | Comer o Beber
  7. Rest | Descansar

Lastly, trace a few circles or ovals on cardboard or construction paper and have your child draw faces showing different emotions. Put a stick on the back of the circles or ovals, with tape to make puppets. Por ultimo, trace circulos o ovalados en carton o cartulina, y haga que su hijo dibuje caras demostrando diferentes emociones. Despues pegue un palito por la parte de atrás con cinta para hacer marionetas.

Marble Art

In a baking pan, I used food coloring! If you tape two pieces of paper together with the tape on the backside and press them into a pan, you can roll marbles around after you dip them with a spoon into food coloring! Don’t have a marble? Use a tiny bead or ball!

Art con Canicas

¡En una bandeja para hornear, usé colorante para alimentos! Si pega dos pedazos de papel junto con la cinta en la parte posterior y los presiona en una sartén, ¡puede enrollar las canicas después de sumergirlas con una cuchara en colorante para alimentos! ¿No tienes una canica? ¡Usa una pequeña cuenta o bola!

Problem Solving

Using a TIMER

Ask your child to spot the difference you can have a lot of fun seeing what your child notices as she practices!

Usando una alarma pídale a su hija que encuentre la diferencia entre las dos imágenes de la izquierda. Se divertirá mucho viendo lo que su hija encuentra mientras práctica.
