Today, we opened a back of 15 bean soup (dried beans). Arin separated the beans into piles. She really enjoyed this. We talked about the colors, sizes, shapes, and even the patterns that some of the beans had on them. Once the beans were in their piles, I gave Arin some glue and a picture of a turkey. She had a great time placing the beans on the turkey's feathers. Then, she colored the turkey's body with crayons. She kept telling me, "This is so fantastic!"
