Plenty of books, songs, and action rhymes about vehicles are featured in today’s program.

Construction Crew “Building Our Home”  

We have learned about tools, trucks, and construction sites so now we are ready to put our skills to good use.  Our special book Building a House by Jonathan Bean shows us how a family builds their home from the ground up.  We will learn some new words such as foundation, frame, and beam.  Exposing children to new vocabulary words introduced in books is important for reading comprehension. (Ages 4-7)
