We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday this week!
On Monday, we made Dr. Seuss hats with rhyming words. Students wrote their own initial sound of the rhyming words that they created. They then got to wear them around! They also did some Green Eggs and Ham activity in which the students rolled the dice to see how many eggs to put on their plate. They then had to circle if that plate had more or less than the other plate they rolled. Students did very well with this and are getting better at writing those numbers.
We also got to work with some number and alphabet cards with Dr. Seuss. This worked on if it is was a letter or a number, as well as recognizing them and counting or saying their sound. The cool thing, this activity could be tailored to each child and his/her needs.
The letter of the week was Qq . 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 Qq with the quilt pieces. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, Q is for Queen.
