Down by the Bay

We have been having fun reading & singing "Down by the Bay."
While we read this story, we reviewed rhyming words, learned about verbs and searched them in various stories.  A word chunk that was introduced to go with the story was "~ing."  Whenever your child is writing "~ing" words at home, please reinforce the spelling pattern.  Young children tend to write "en" for "ing!"
We also wrote and illustrated our own verse for the song.  Enjoy!
