This week was all about nursery rhymes - a favorite was Humpty Dumpty!  We read "The Real Story of Humpty Dumpty" and listened to 10 Humpty Dumpty's sitting on the wall! 

We practiced writing our names and writing letters in the sand.  Stringing beads was a hit, along with rolling the dice and picking up pumpkin seeds with tweezers.
