Magic Carpet
by Shel Silverstein

Monday (science): magnification & magnetics. We'll play and discover with magnifying glasses and magnets.

Tuesday (math): money. We'll learn the names of the coins and who's pictured on them.

Wednesday (scriptures/Gospel): Moses. I'll teach him the story of Moses. If I can get it, we'll watch Prince of Egypt this week sometime.

Thursday (movement/music): marching/music. Movement activities to review left and right. We'll also include the Spanish songs we've learned at Spanish class to review the names of body parts.

Friday (art project): masks. We'll make masks and decorate them.

Other M words that might come up or spark ideas for activities: moon, mouse, microphone, mittens, matching, Mickey Mouse, month, mammals.
