Book Club Week 8: Leaf Man
By Hallie Bulkin
Welcome to our 8th week of Book Club! Here we are with another “classic” preschool book that I could not imagine skipping this year, Leaf Man. There are so many leaves and so many colors falling from the trees right now so let’s take advantage of that! Enjoy!

sequencing the steps from start to finish and much more!
Art Project of the Week

Field Trip of the Week
App of the Week
This app is especially great for working on repetition of fall vocabulary and short phrases/sentences.
If they are too long you can have your child repeat back 1-2 words of a phrase on each page.
You can also use this to work on pointing skills (“point to the red leaf”) and see how your child does on this task!
We are here to serve YOU! Hop on over to our Facebook page and

Have fun with the Fall Leaves theme this week! Next up is one more week of FALL before we head into Thanksgiving!
