We also decorated our names for our valentines buckets. Students wrote their names with pencil first. They then put glue on their pencil lines, and shook the glitter on. We are broadening our abilities to use a variety of art materials and our fine motor skills.
AM students who missed making the clay projects as a part of the Catholic schools week event made that up on Tuesday. Students who stayed with a sub while I went to the staff meeting on Wednesday made name caterpillars/love bugs.
The letter of the week was Bb. 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 B with Blue Bubbles. Students are getting good at making predictions of what they think they will be decorating with based on words that start with that sound. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, B is for Bumble Bee.
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! This came home on the blue sheets from break.
