this morning we started the day with a worksheet that had circles that needed to be filled with words that began with the letter "W". At the bottom of the page were 6 pictures. We practiced saying the words and the sound of the letter as well as the sounds of other letters. I had the children put their hand on their throat and make the sounds of the alphabet. Then we watched the mouth as the letters were said. then we cut out the circles with the pictures on them and placed them on the worksheet. It was a lot of fun listening to the comments the kids made about those sounds.
When the coloring was completed, I was able to tell them about weaving and showed them a hand woven "throw" made with looms by the Amish in Pennsylvania.
Then we moved on to weaving with paper.
It has been a good week!! PreK is a learning place.
