Book Bag: September

Jellyfish are fascinating creatures. They have no brain, no bones, no eyes, there is a vast array of different (beautiful) varieties, and a group of jellies is called a smack. These are the things you learn when you have an inquisitive four-year old... This month has also been Fall, Halloween, Science and Rhyming tales, as well as my favorite counting DVD (featuring Winnie the Pooh), and a wonderful book for parents (and teachers) to encourage pre-K and Kindergarten writers. Enjoy! As, always, our faves are ****'d!
