WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK?

This past week we finished Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? The kids have absolutely loved this book! Who knew one book could be so much fun and have so many learning opportunities! At table/sensory time, we enjoyed bears in playdough and bears in water!


I hope you all enjoyed your home visit! I know I did :) It is always fun to see the kiddos in their natural environment!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN THIS WEEK?

This week we will be starting a new anchor book, Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes! This is a fun, repetitive sing songy book :) We will continue working on identifying, labeling, and matching colors! The children will have their own book to work on turning the pages of a book along with me and the song! We will also continue implementing the PECS boards to help answer questions :) The song is below in the video section!
