Day 3

  1. Sing “One two buckle my shoe…”
  2. Do the opposites puzzle we have (In case you want to make your own or do your own thing, but don’t want to think up the opposite words, here’s a picture of the puzzle. The only one I didn’t agree with was “stand” and “sit.”  I would think the complete opposite of standing would be lying down, so we talked about that.)
