We read a really fun book about all of the letters in the alphabet racing up the coconut tree. We talked about how letters make up words when you put them together and how they make up our names too. We counted how many letters are in our names. We also made a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Coconut tree to take home. The tree was filled with letters and the students had to place the correct sticker on each letter. They really enjoyed doing this activity. Then we decorated the border to make it look just like the book. We learned a new song about all of the letters and the sounds they make. We will start our alphabet adventure on Wednesday! Harley brought yummy snacks to share and we watched the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom video too.
Have I mentioned how much I love the extra time I get to spend with your children??!! We played a really fun counting game. We took turns rolling a die and placing coconuts (pom poms!) on our coconut tree. We practiced writing our numbers and worked in groups today too!
