Today we matched the upper case letters of the alphabet with the lower case. They each one had a set of foam shapes with the upper case written on them. They were to place the upper case on the matching lower case letters. We will be working hard on the letter recognizing between now and the end of school.
Our letter for this week is Letter M and so today we had fun with two things in particular that begin with M. They were each given paper clips, circles and magnetic balls and a big magnet which they used to move the other objects around on the table. They really enjoyed this activity.
Tara watches as she moves the objects around
Devin got his objects to really hop around on the table
Jack was really happy when he figured it out!
We also worked on money-each was given a plastic penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half dollar, and a paper dollar. We played a bingo game matching these to the number equivalent. For instance one penny is 1cent, a nickel is 5 cents, and so forth. It was a little frustrating to them, but they liked having their own play money.
All in all, it was a pretty good day!!
