When you are a storyteller you can be an author too ! Today I dictated stories the children wrote and then they illustrated the pages.
When you give children opportunities to practice writing and drawing for fun this happened organically.
Today was International Button Day. I’m sure you’ve caught on by now. I use days like this to create interest in the calendar, counting and letter recognition. Today we noticed that button starts with a B. We made a cute picture of a tree with buttons. I offered the invitation. The rest was up to them.
We went on a walk in our neighborhood and noticed all the amazing colors of trees.
