It is a rainy day here in Arizona, but we got right to the fun stuff and the time passed very quickly. I started by introducing them to the geoboards and it was a real exciting thing for the kids to learn how to wind the rubber bands around the pegs to make shapes.
We will really be focusing on alphabet recognition and sight words and today the word "the" was gone over and over and over. So, please go over it again at home.
Now, today I gave them each a book to take home. Please look at the page and ask them what they see on the page. The words will tell the story of the page. For instance, if there is a dog on the page making cookies, the words might say On Monday, Dog made cookies in the morning.
Here is A with her book
When they can read them to you they can bring them in to read to the class.
These last two pages you will notice that there are pictures inside the circles. The first one was a nest. There was a strip of circles with the word associated with the picture. They cut out those circles and after telling what the object was, they found the sound it started with, located the word and pasted it in the circle following the object We are still working on our cutting, as well as learning to put the caps back on the glue when they are finished using them
