Literacy: Using playdough, a rolling pin and magnetic letters we practiced naming the letters in the alphabet. This activity not only focuses on literacy, but on small motor as well because of the manipulating of the playdough.
Circle Time: I also wanted to share with you an update on the Circle Time Journals. My son (who is almost 4) has a journal that is a little bit more advanced. At the daycare, I have some two year olds that need a simpler page so I created an easier version of the journal. This journal is more about choice and recognition that printing. You can print this journal by clicking here.
