Leesburg Stuffed Animal Sleepover (Slideshow!)


appleYesterday we had a Bedtime Math storytime/stuffed animal sleepover at the Leesburg Library.  First we made personalized backpack nametags for our stuffed friends, then we played with bubbles for awhile.  We started with reading Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin and James Dean (E CATS LITW).

We finished up with two sample problems from the Bedtime Math website (www.bedtimemath.org).

Finally, we put our stuffed animals to bed.  You won’t believe what they did after you left!  Here’s a slideshow of their antics!
