WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK?

Last week we finished up with All About Me. These past 2 weeks have really been fun learning about our bodies and ourselves:) The kids really did great with this theme and learned a lot about their body parts, learned new songs, and explored many different table time activities. Two weeks of our Matt and Mollly story proved to be very beneficial! They really had the story down by the end of this past week; answering questions, naming objects in the pictures, and sequencing. Repetition is KEY for our little ones!!!!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS WEEK?

This week we will be moving onto a new theme...5 LITTLE MONKEYS!!!!! There are so many learning opportunities during this fun and exciting theme. For example, we will be working on rote counting, counting objects, table time activities, new songs and new stories:) Our anchor book (the book we will read everyday) will be 5 Little Monkeys.
