This week we highlighted each student's uniqueness that makes them special, especially how they each hold a special spot in our preschool and their family.
We spent the week focusing on the letter M; identifying its name and sound through many activities. We used the sound box to pull out items that begin with Mm sound.
Since students seem to need more practice with identifying numbers and counting we rolled dice, counted the dice, and identified the number on the hopscotch carpet to jump over. We played BINGO with numbers. Students took turns to pull a card out and count or read the number to the rest of the students. Then all students would find the number on their board.
Next week handprint garden stones will come home with students that were here this week and who wanted to participate. This is a great memento and a highlight of this week's theme.
For those students who know majority of their letters and sounds and are ready for emergent reading I encourage you to check out these on-line books here
. Books cannot be printed but if you enlarge the screen view on your computer your child should be able to see it better. To find out what level your child should be reading at then have them read these benchmark books
and you should easily be able to determine which section is too easy or too difficult.
For those of you who are looking for improving your child's comprehension skills if they are reading or even if they are not check out this free book adventure
where you can find books, have your child take a quiz, and earn prizes. I set up a classroom for our preschool. When registering type in my name and our preschool name. I already set up an account for Karyna. If you would like me to set one up for your child let me know.
Lots of information...soak it all in and have a great 3 day weekend. No school on Monday, January 16th. Sharing item for Wednesday is Vehicles.
