This week at Ruiz, we read stories about rabbits.
Which is great! Rabbits are adorable! However, each of these stories also featured themes of imaginative thinking. We read about a girl with a magic hat (and a polar bear!), a magic suitcase, and a box that wasn't actually a box. Whether you read them in a group or one-on-one these books practically beg kids to participate and are excellent at encouraging imaginative thinking and play. Which are skills kids need help to develop. The books are listed below with links to the catalog. Check one out today!
We also got a chance to practice our spelling with a rousing session of B-U-N-N-Y. What's that you ask? Bunny? Yes, Bunny! If your kids like to sing B-I-N-G-O, this is a great alternative and helps them learn new words and letters.
(sing to the tune of B-I-N-G-O)
I know a rabbit with big long ears
And BUNNY is his name-o
B-U-N-N-Y, B-U-N-N-Y, B-U-N-N-Y
And Bunny is his name-o
