Pumpkin Fun

Bear's first pumpkin carving 

I mentioned in my last post that my MIL wrote out a curriculum for Bear. It is primarily a  pumpkin curriculum with a few added fall items. It is for the first half of October. I am so excited to be able to share it with you. 
Here are a few of the objectives we will be highlighting in the next couple of weeks. 
  • Sorting  and shape identification (in this case it will be a CIRCLE)
  • colors (Orange) 
  • positional words and opposite (down, up, in, out) 
  • extending vocabulary (smooth, squishy, slimy)

I am giddy about this. Although we do activities often I have never used a more structured way to plan our days. I think this a great start. I am excited to think of more ideas within this theme and running with it.  So if you are interested in this little journey stay tuned we have some fun activities planned.
