    Introduced this to my class last week and they love it! Stage 2 and very happy to run sizzle and stretch. This is a perfect transition activity and is being added to our brain break wall.

    I have been using Beans a lot in the last few years. We have many many Beans! Hot Beans, Cold Beans, Jumping Beans, Runner Beans, Navy Beans (salute), Baby Beans (Rock the baby), Mean Beans (Grrr!) climbing Beans, Can O' Beans (Pair up), Three Bean Mix (Groups of three) , Bean Salsa (A little salsa dance), always careful to remind them that beans are silent but deadly....
