Tonight it was time for my May installment of Animal Mania! I read the stories below (which were a big hit), and then we played Duck Duck Goose. The kids who came to this program were mainly my regular 3rd grade contingent, who are sometimes too cool for the activities until we actually start doing them. They were thrilled watching me be the goose, as I am older and do not run as fast as they do. I ended up tagged and playing the egg in the center of the nest a lot (is this how we played as kids? I don’t remember any of this stuff).
