Literacy tip of the week: 
Counting books and rhymes can be great for developing literacy skills. The ordered sequence of events and numbers in these books and rhymes helps children with their narrative skills. Narrative skills are what allow children to describe a story as an ordered sequence of events.

Craft:We made number collages :)
