Happy Times February 2018

Weekly Themes & Stories for February

This month we will be learning about: chickens, pigs, cows, and ducks. Fun Fact: the heaviest pig on record is Big Bill at 2,552 lbs in 1933! We will be reading:  Farm Animals, If You Give a Pig a Pancake, The Flea’s Sneeze, and The Ugly Duckling.  You can cuddle up and read these great books with your child at home too.
