We are continuing with our Fall unit focusing on harvest time, farming and preparing for Thanksgiving. We are spending more time during centers writing our letters, numbers, and names and have been introducing more games in our puzzle and game center that will increase letter and number recognition. Our sensory table has been filled with acorns and corn kernels and we have been doing a lot of sorting and making patterns with them.
The letter of the week was Ss. 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!
This week we are learning the letter S! We have read our Alphatales book several times and are doing an awesome job picking out the S words in the book. We have also discovered that we are learning to spell!! Ask your child about some of the words they have learned to spell during circle time, specifically during weather watching! We decorated our bubble letter S with star stickers and our handprint was a big black spider!!
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 S with Smile and Star Stickers. They even took it a step further and put six or seven stickers on. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, S is for Spider.
