Weekend Challenge!

Weekend Challenge!

When you’re waiting somewhere this weekend (restaurant, grocery check-out line, dinner to be cooked) try this action rhyme we shared this week. Rhymes help your little one hear the pieces and parts of words. This skill is called “Phonological Awareness” which is an ability that they will need to read. So let’s practice!


Snag the last spot!

Red Balloon classes start next week! Only ONE spot remains in the Thursday (9:30am) Toddlertime class. Get in touch with me to snag the last spot (sara@saras-stories.com). I’d love to have you and your little one in my class!

Join me for fun with “Bear” stories, songs and rhymes. This week–Tuesday Babytime at Red Balloon, Thursday Toddlertime at Red Balloon and Friday Babytime at Amma. All programs are at 10:30am. See you there!
