Comment

The activities provide starting points for children and teachers; they can be studied independently or by groups of students, and in any sequence. Teachers could plan a unit for the spring or fall, or choose seasonal activities to use throughout the year. Beans and Their Buddies is well suited for a centres approach in a child-centred environment. Excellent reproducible pages included.
