Our topic this week was Fall.
Students made a fall leaf for our tree in our classroom. They worked on their fine motor skills cutting out the leaf and then pinching the sponges and stamping them on the leaf. Our tree looks great!
Students also decorated an acorn. Students painted glue on the top and then sprinkled it with oatmeal. The then painted the bottom of the acorn with glue and sprinkled it with coffee. Our room smelled great and our acorns look so cool with the textures!
Students also were pulled out to do their PALS assessment. Students are doing well with this and we will be discussing the results with you during conferences in November! See below for the parent note on PALS if you would like more info on PALS.
The letter of the week was Aa. We learned 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!
Each week we watch letter videos from "Have Fun Teaching" and the students are really picking up the names of letters, formations, and the sounds of letters. Check out these videos with you child! Click HERE.
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 A with apples and ants. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, A is for Alligator.
Please visit the whole website (4k, drop down menu, Gallery) to see your child's first day photo as well as photos from through out the week. If you would like the first day photo, please email me and I can send you the digital copy.
As mentioned for the past few weeks, 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!
PALS will be begin on October 14. See the information below about PALS.
