Preschool Manners was so much fun to teach today. Our letter of the week continues to be letter M. We started the day off by making these awesome headbands from the Moffatt Girls. They feature the letter M with 3 different initial m images (mouse, monkey, money).manners preschool printable for these printables and more!
the Amazing Action Alphabet only has the letter M in it. So we point to each M and say /m/. It is a great slow start to some key skills of reading. If you haven't checked out their beginning readers yet I'd highly recomend them.
foam fingers are a great way to introduce pointing to each letter that you're reading. Something about oversizing what you're doing makes it really stick out as an important skill to do each time you open a book.

Touch Math PreK curriculum. The fingers showed how many objects someone wanted and we had to color in an equal set.
Our afternoon preschool is such a new format that I'm still getting used to it, but the kids are loving it. We start our day planning which order we'll do things. Today RS jumped right in and organized our day, she even remembered that snack has to come second to last. CF wanted to make one change to the agenda and everyone agreed that it looked great. They decided so quickly, it was great! Our first order of buisness: Music. They had decided that dancing and playing rhythm sticks would be the best for today. Jam pack the next 5 minutes with motion galore!

Amazing Action Alphabet Begining Reader Books for the first half of the year. They are picking up the idea of reading quickly and are reading quality books that are meeting their needs.
CJ and AT have gone through the whole Amazing Action Alphabet book series and are working more exclusively on books that feature our word families. Last week they were reading the Now I'm Reading Level 1 Book 1 and today we started reading book 2 of the Bob Books Set 1. (We read book 1 as a review in our reading group time, but they read that last spring) I got a couple of copies of the Bob books in the large size from Costco for a great deal, if you're planning on working with your child on reading at home I'd highly suggest to purchase them there.
