Thank you, Miss Tiffany, for visiting with us this morning!  We love to learn what is happening at the Children's Museum.

This afternoon, we practiced our colors!


Lemons are Not Red by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
Yellow lemons, pink flamingos and silver moons abound in this color book with die-cut shapes.

Freight Train by Donald Crews
Journey with this colorful train as it travels by cities, through tunnels and over trestles!  Chug-a-chug-a-chug-a-chug-a-choo-choo!

What better way to practice our colors than by making a lovely
 RAINBOW at craft time?!?!
