Yep, still A week. Today we read: Animals should definitely not wear clothing by Judi Barrett (pretty good), All For Me and None For All by Helen Lester (a little too advanced) and The Stuffed Animals Get Ready for Bed by Alison Inches (also pretty good). We talked about Animals and certain dinosaurs (ie. Allosaurus and Ankylosaurus). We also went to Walmart and discussed the fruits and veggie and whether they started with 'A' or not, he did surprisingly well. Then we came home and we made pictures with sticky foam animals, that we hung up on the fridge. We also made paper bag puppets, I told him we could make whatever kind of animal he wanted, his reply: an Allosaurus (not surprised).

Our foam animal art work, the captions are: Elephant eating mouth and horn. Giraffes eating, crown monkey climbing and Alligator swimming in water.

Javin is for and against the taking of naps, depending on the day and today was an awful no nap day - I know its terrible to say, but the day just DRAGS on if I don't get a break from him. I love the dear boy, but he's a lot to deal with all day, even when he's well rested.
