    Letters can be found in many places, such as on signs and in books.

    "I Spy With My Little Eye"

    We will use cars to paint tracks on paper.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature an eye glass shop.  For art we will paint and for sensory play we will search for objects hidden in corn and match them to photos on a poster. We'll use the mini hollow blocks for construction play.  For small motor play we'll work on puzzles and we'll practice climbing the wooden steps for large motor play.
