Dragon Day


We celebrated this most imaginative animal on International Dragon Day. We talked about dragon like animals, such as the alligator.  We even had an alligator in class so we could learn about scales and scutes.

We read a few dragon tales, including my favorite


The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch.  We had a fun snake dragon parade as we sang and acted out our emotions with the Happy Dragon Song:


and lastly we made these fun, fire breathing dragons:


Happy Dragon Day!
