On Monday, we started with cutting apart a turkey puzzle. Students then had to count the number of dots on the bottom to put the puzzle back together. They then got to color the turkey in.
|This permission slip came home this week. Each 4k site hosts a district wide event. Ours was the 4k family fun night in October. This event, Breakfast with Santa, is hosted by Play and Grow in Greenville. Please EVERYBODY turn a slip in so I can email a correct count to the site. Thanks!|
We have been working on proper writing in general. Here is a look at our lines. There is the sky line, the plane line, and the ground. (eventually there will be a worm line but we aren't to worm line letters). We always start at the sky line. ALWAYS. For an A, it is start at the sky, Slant down, slant down, across the plane line. For a, it is circle back, close, pull down to the ground. Encourage this language and proper formation as it will truly help the with their fluency down the road. We added a worm line now because the lower case g goes down to the worms!
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 Star Stickers. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, S is for Spider.
Students also do a maze of the letter helping get from one object to another starting with that letter, find and color all of the letter, color a page of something that starts with that letter, and make a crown at the end of the week to be the Kings and Queens of the letter!
We also do a handwriting sheet. This is important because writing the letters correctly helps with efficiency as well as learning cursive down the line. We ALWAYS START AT THE TOP. Please encourage students to write the letter correctly! S is curve back, curve forward.
