What a fun day of preschool! This morning we talked about the letter G with Giggles and Gumdrops. G is a tricky sound to make. I encourage kids to tip their head back and feel their throat to make the /g/ in the back of their throat rather than in the front of their mouth like /j/. We read some very silly stories that really made us giggle! Art and math were combined twice today. We made fun gumdrop graphs and then made shapes out of gumdrops and toothpicks. The gumdrops and toothpicks went home and you're welcome to decide their fate (they are technically spice drops, which aren't as commonly liked among preschoolers). Then we headed downstairs for math. We talked about the four main shapes (circles, squares, triangles, rectangles). One of the activities we did was to make lists of all the things around us that were each shape (clocks, beds, pizza, windows, etc.). Please continue this conversation at home by pointing out different shapes in the environment.
Have a great day of learning!
