Happy Valentine's Day! A few kids pointed out that today was in fact not Valentine's day. However, since we don't have school on Saturday we celebrated it today! This morning was a blast learning about the letter U. We used a big balloon with a capital U and a small balloon with a lower case u to practice the /u/ sound. We made the balloon go /u/ /u/ /u/ - UP! and then tossed it to another student to repeat the action. We also talked about all the words in the mini U book from the Amazing Action Alphabet. We talked about the family of frogs in the book and acted out all the actions that they do throughout the book. After snack time each child got a box of heart candies to sort and graph. We practiced one-to-one counting and determining which color and the most and the least.
