Spring Review

This week is a letter review.  I tend to teach three letters and then review all the ones we've learned.  It has proven helpful in retaining the information about the letter sounds to aid in our reading skills.  For art today we made letter parties with the alphabet stamps.

 "T" had gotten down from the table and when I looked over he was proudly hanging up his art work on the refrigerator.  He was so proud!
 In math we've extended our attribute sorting to include *size *shape *color.  It's a little bit trickier when you have to consider that the common attribute could be any of these three, but we're starting to get the hang of it.
 Identifying that only one object in a particular set is the one that doesn't belong is difficult and we're often talking about how "these two go together" because of an attribute and continuing the conversation about what is alike and why.  It's all great conversation!
My camera was out of batteries today so I apologize for the lack of photos, but we had a blast finishing up our unit in music about "Music had a beat".  They really loved this unit and the opportunity to use the rhythm sticks.  Starting Wednesday we'll be introducing that music has a form and pattern with the use of melody maps.
