all areas continue the same (Dramatic Play / Blocks and Building / Games and Puzzles / Playdough / Books )     

catch up on Phonics books, assessments and portfolios for those who were away.

Do you have the littlest pet shot toys  by chance? They are a really big hit here..the house and about 50 pets...would go good with your theme lol!

I don't have those but the kids do love anything 'smallish' don't they!  I did pick a few sets up for birthdays though!  We finish pets this week and move into Easter/Spring.
