What a great day of learning! In our morning class we talked all about Insects and the letter I. We learned the sight words "I" and "my" and did some great hand print art from the Amazing Action Alphabet Activity Book. We spent lots of time in small groups today really working on learning our letters and sounds and blending the letters to make words. Remember to reference the blending video found here to help you with reading at home. We also got to pull out the rhythm sticks to start our month long study of rhythm in music. Boy did we love that!
Our afternoon class started off with a bang reading, "Pete the Cat, Play Ball!" It's impressive how many of these kids (3 and 4 year olds) can read SO MUCH of this book already by themselves. We learned the sight word "ball" and the letter p today. Continue your work at home reading the mini readers every day and add to it the Pete the Cat book. Remember to read the big words and encourage them to read the highlighted words that they've been working on (we highlight the appropriate words with highlighter tape in class).
