We ha our usual opening excercises and the kids noticed that we had big arrows on the map!! We added the three O states--Ohio, Oklahoma and Oregon. In our travels this summer I was able to pick up some post cards, so the kids each got a post card from Ohio and Oklahoma.
Chase noticed the camel on the wall--Shinrai--trustworthy. We talked about what that meant and if our friends and family were trustworthy and how we can be.
I put a puzzle of the ocean creatures on the table and gave each child five pieces to put into the finished project. We first looked at the picture, then established where each creature was on it. Then I turned it upside down and each one started to put the puzzle together.
When the puzzle was complete, I handed each their workbook and we found the page with the letter on it and I read each instruction to them so they could complete each step.
When we completed the workbook page, I gave each one their own dry eraseboard and they were to write upper case O and lower case O on this unlined area.
|I gave them each a colored piece of construction paper, along with some foam fishes, some seaweed, an octopus, some sea shells, colored shells and sand so they could make an underwater scene|
We topped off the day by playing alphabet bingo. We will do this often so they can associate the letters with the sounds.
On to letter G
