Nov 19-Nov 20 (21)

We did not have have a letter of the week this week due to the short week.  We brought in the alphabet and letter sounds in a variety of ways.  We have been practicing, practicing, practicing the letters we have learned so far and will continue to add more!

*****I am going to add all the previous letters of the week to a "Letters of the Week" tab on our website.  Please visit the website for this new tab as well as updated photos!*****

 Monday we made turkeys that students matched the number on the feathers to the dots on the turkey.  They are doing well with this concept and continue to work on counting and number recognition.

Tuesday we made a Thankerchief--a game of passing around a "thankercheif" and taking turns saying what we are thankful for.  We practiced the game in school and I hope you were albe to enjoy it at home!  This activity taught us things we are thankful for, worked on our speaking skills, following multi-step directions, and fine motor skills when decorating our "thankerchief."

Wednesday, the morning class played Thanksgiving BINGO in our small group time.  We learned a variety of Thanksgiving vocabulary words as well as worked on our listening skills.
