This week we talked about our 5 senses and began our letter of the week project. Students had a lot of fun!
On Monday, students used stickers to write their name. This worked their fine motor skills and also made some fun art to put with our first day of school photos in the hallway.
We began the letter of the week work in which we learn the sign language for a letter, the literacy link sound symbols, the letter sound, and looking at and writing it in both capital letters and lower case letters. Click here to view the many ways we learn the letter of the week! The Tuesday project of letter of the week is to decorate a letter with something that starts with the letter. This week we decorated the letter L with Lines. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, help figure out what illustration belonged on the page, and then make that illustration from our hand print! Some described it as tickly, some as cold, and some even said they liked it! Great describing words!
Mrs Drummond worked with the students on a cut and paste project in which the students would look at the pictures, and figure out what sense they were using in the series of pictures. Students then would cut out the correct sense and glue it next to it. We are doing well at getting acquainted with the scissors, glue sticks, and the fine motor skills used to maneuver both!
On Wednesday students also tested our 5 senses and used them to discover what was in the mystery baggies. We used our describing words and our detective skills to figure out that sugar, salt, lemon juice, and vanilla was in the mystery bags!

|Not sure about the taste of this lemon juice!|

As mentioned last week, we would like to have a family and friends board in our room. That way the space is as much of the students' as it is of mine (I have my family photos, they should too!) Please send a family photo that can stay up in the classroom all year long. When photos come in, the students will take some time to tell the rest of their class about their family. Can't wait to see the photos and hear about the families!
