Thanks for joining in our Kick-Off Celebration
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.
We are so excited to be starting this new collaborative project with you. It is our hope that ABC & 123 will become a valuable tool for sharing our learning successes and challenges. We hope to learn and grown together.
In honor of our blog's name, we've decided to fill our first post with activities surrounding two favorite early childhood books. Every early learner would benefit from having these two stories in their home library. If you've also done an activity incorporating this book please add a link to it in a comment. We'd love to add it to this collection of ideas!
