Monday, Tiger broke into our snack and enjoyed some raisins!
Tuesday, Tiger must have gotten stuck in the gel on our door! He just 'hung out' all day long!
Wednesday, Tiger took a nap in our Kleenex Box.
We created the gifts and wrapping paper for our parents. This worked on our fine motor skills. We also worked on finishing up our other projects that worked on patterning and measuring.
We did have time for a letter of the week. The letter of the week was Uu. 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 U with mini Umbrellas. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, U is for Umbrella.
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.
We watched the movie Happy Feet and looked for the different polar animals we saw in the movie. Students made rip penguins. Students were given penguin templates and they had no feathers! Students had to rip up paper feathers and make sure to cover all the skin. They then had to make feet and a beak for these penguins. We also made a penguin out of an oreo cookie. We enjoyed that snack!
We will continue to talk about, list, and find the adaptations of various polar animals.
The next Reading with the Stars is January 14, 2014.
