Week 2- The 5 Senses

 Had a fun week! Students worked more on using centers correctly, cleaning up quickly and putting things back where we got them and sitting safe on the carpet and table spots.

Students got library books on Monday and had gym on Wednesday but had to stay in the classroom for gym today so we did some stretching and dancing videos used dance videos. Starting next week, we will switch and have  gym on Monday because the older kids have library on wed and we will have library on Wednesday.

We read about our senses, made a graph of things we do with each sense and wrote a poem about our senses today. We read a book  about what it means to be a friend and today we read one about liking ourselves just the way we are.  

The letter of the week was Ll. 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 L with Lego's dipped in paint.  On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, L is for Lion.
