I wanted to share this on Thanksgiving or the day before Thanksgiving but then I remembered all next week and the week after that and the week after that… is going to be taken up with book tour posts and some of you (who are not like me) like to plan crafts AHEAD of time instead on the actual day. What a strange concept. Anyway, this is a song Bug has been singing all the live-long day because they are practicing it at school for a Thanksgiving concert (it’s so adorable). So I made some turkeys for her to puppet dance with.
Here they are for you if you’d like to play along. And yes, you have to cut those little circles out. That’s what exacto knives were invented for.
I know there is a big debate over phonics vs. sight words and I don’t really want to get into that but at Bug’s school they teach a combination of some sort that seems to be working! It’s so delightful to watch her figure things out. She’s sounding out words off signs as we drive down the street and I totally remember doing that myself at her age. It’s such an exciting time.
Anyway, she wanted to show you guys how she can read these days. It’s only a matter of time before she’s demanding her own vlog posts.
