We have been learning about dark and light. We covered animals you will find in the day time and nocturnal ones you can find in the evenings! Our shadows were a fascinating way for us to understand the concept of light being blocked by something and we were lucky enough to have some super sunny days to explore this further. See pictures below to update our recent learning.

We are getting really good at our new sounds. We were able to use the sounds we know to help us write the names of some animals.
