Change of plans...

Of course you remember my post on the different "fall" related fingerplays I spent time pulling together for Q. Is she interested? Not one bit!
Instead, she is ALL ABOUT the Eensy Weensy Spider song/fingerplay! I guess it is spurred by this library book:
(I know, we change the our house it's eeensy weensy...)
We've sang this to her for months, but she has just taken a sudden obsession to it! She loves to point to the spider picture on each page (great early-literacy skills!! This means she is aware that illustrations have meaning, that each page continues with the same general idea, she is using visual discrimination to find the same spider on each page, and having very basic awareness of symbolic representation...obviously it's not a REAL spider, but it's a picture of one that REPRESENTS a spider.) On her way to reading, folks!
Anyhow, we are taking a break from the fall fingerplays...they are still out and I will say them for her if she grabs one, but we are sticking with her lead on this one. I've seriously sang the Spider song at least 20 times a day. Yikes!
The fingerplays will save for next year....or who knows...maybe next week! :)
