Today we read about an alligator who was angry at ant for taking his apple! When A the alligator is angry he says...."a", "a", "a"! (and we shake our fists like we are angry!) The story series that I use is called The Amazing Action Alphabet. I love it because it is a great tool to teach letters and sounds. The students learn by seeing, hearing and doing the action of each letter and it's sound. The kids love it and it is really amazing how fast they learn their sounds. Even for those children that can actually name the letter A....when they see it they can almost always tell me the sound and the action because they associate the letters with the stories. Here is a picture of A the Alligator.
We painted alligators today and traced capital and lowercase letter Aa. Please help your child hold their writing utensil correctly and practice tracing their name. Thanks again for your help!! I will try to send home our name practice papers next week.
Kingston brought alligator cupcakes and apple juice for snack today!! We can hear the "a" sound in both of our treats!! Thanks Kingston!! Check out Kingston's shirt.....even though it says t-rex....we think it looks like an alligator!!
We had fun playing outside on the new swings too! I am loving this weather!! Evie is showing two of the books we read today.
I wanted to share a couple of the songs we sang today. I love using YouTube in the classroom!!
