Weekly News:

Last week we kicked off our “Favorite Books” unit with the classic, The Wheels on the Bus.  The children enjoyed driving buses on crinkly paper, making a friendship bus collage, and keeping tally of the buses we saw outside.  They also had fun pretending to drive buses all around our room while holding onto big circles (steering wheels).  This activity allowed the toddler to practice controlling their bodies.

This week we take a look at another classic, Goodnight Moon.  We plan to paint a moon, toss red balloons, and go on a mouse search.  This should be another fun week.
