Toddler Time: Shapes and Colors

Due to summer reading planning, school visits, etc. I have fallen behind on posting my Toddler Time plans!  At the very beginning of May, I did a shapes and colors theme that went fairly well.

HOW IT WENT:

Is it sad that my memories from a couple of weeks ago are a little fuzzy?  I remember that Shapes and Green Says Go worked really well with the toddlers.  If You’re Wearing… also worked, but, as usual, every toddler did every movement regardless of what color they were wearing.  I would also definitely read both books again with toddlers.  I’m taking the fact that I don’t remember any catastrophe happening to mean that this theme went very smoothly.
