1. Check your child's backpack- they will be bringing home a cardboard square for you to use.
2. Feel things around the house and have your child decide on a favorite "feel." They may like the feel of something smooth like dry beans or marbles, or something soft like feathers or pom-poms, or even something scratchy like sand paper or shells.
3. Help your child glue that favorite feeling item to their cardboard square. Once it is dry, bring it to us and we will take care of the rest!
Some hints: It will probably work better if the whole square is covered with the same type of item. If your child REALLY wants more than one texture, we can always add another square! Pick something inexpensive or better yet, FREE! You will want to pick an item that you have plenty of to cover the whole square. Go on a nature walk and see what you can find/feel. Or, when shopping, take the time to stop and feel the many textures around us.

Last Week's Adventures
We read the book, At the Edge of the Woods. Students worked together to count the same number of animals from the book and arrange them onto the forest background scene.
Counting and Number Recognition
After reading Christopher Counting, students enjoyed finding things to count and arranging numerals in order.
Students loved the book Red and Yellow's Noisy Night. They thought it was funny when the fox kept his friend awake all night by strumming on his "strummy." They thought it was even funnier when they got to make their own "strummies."
