We had oodles of fun in school today. It's a letter review week and our theme was Families. Each child started the day with puzzles of their own families that they had to put together. They loved it and many of them kept hold up puzzles pieces and saying "This is my Mommy." It was so cute!
We talked about all the shapes that make up bodies and had a little art lesson about using the shapes to draw something. We drew ovals for heads, rounded rectangles for bodies and arms/legs. It was fun to go around the room and write down some details about what they were drawing.
We worked on sounding out letters in words today since we're reviewing all the letters we've learned. One strategy is to drive a car under the letters and while the car is under a letter we say the sound of the letter. The car can drive on the street over and over while the word gets faster and faster.
We also had an introduction to numerical order today. We started talking about first, second and third. This isn't something that many preschoolers will master, but introducing the vocabulary is great at this stage.
