Kindergarten artists read the book The Lion and Rat, which we learned is a fable or a story with a lesson. Kindergarteners did a great job of figuring out the lesson behind this story. "The lesson is that litte friends can help big friends," one student said. We drew our lions by overlapping three circles. We added triangle teeth. We learned about pattern while making the mane. We also talked about the month of March--how it goes in 'like a lion and out like a lamb'.
