So here are my 2 reasons for doing holiday themed activities.
1-It helps them understand and have fun with the Holiday and get excited for it to come.
2-Is to use the excitement of that holiday to help them practice skills.
Well, number one worked perfectly. The boys were very excited for Halloween. Number 2 worked well too but the boys weren't really sure what Halloween was! Now that they have experienced it they are so excited! So it would be silly to put it all away now! Not us! We are going to use that excitement to have all kinds of fun learning! Here's a little of what we've done today!
Writing with our new Pumpkin Pencil! Thank you Grandma!
