I hope you are staying warm in this polar vortex! We have been learning all about animals that also live in cold all the time. They may start to think we are polar people!
On Monday, we started by making feathers for our penguins. Penguins need their black and white feathers to be warm when sliding in the snow and diving in the icy waters. Students had to rip their feathers from the black and white paper and match it to the black or white skin. Students did a great job and they got to work those fine motor skills!
Wednesday was our snow/cold day.
The letter of the week was Pp. 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 P with popcorn in paint. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, P is for penguin.
I am so sorry the reading with the stars paper copies didn't come home this week. Here is a digital image. Please rsvp by email, note in your child's folder, or printing and returning the rsvp. Thank you! Hope to see you there!
