This group of students did a great job participating in the songs and activities this week. They started out the class with circle time. After their circle time song they greet each other and say hello. The teacher asked the students how they are and the students respond with emotions like “happy” “sad” and “sleepy.” The teacher also has flashcards where they pick a random emotion or feeling, such as “hot” and “cold” and everyone has to guess what they think it is.
The teacher read a book about school to the students and then introduced the new letter, “Bb”. They learned the words “bird”, “baby”, “book” and “boy”. Most of the students knew the words by the end!
The students worked on making a school book this week. They colored the front of the book, which was a picture of the school. They also worked on the first page, which was a drawing of themselves. The page said “Me in 2018”. The books are going to stay at the school and they will add pages each week and for the holidays. They had a lot of fun!
The students also worked on their handwriting by writing “Bb” and also worked on beginning sounds by distinguishing words that start with “Bb” and words that don't start with “Bb.”
Lastly, the students played lots of games! They played a racing game where they had to choose the correct school item and place it in their team’s basket. They also played an ABC game where they had to say and collect the alphabet flashcards. They had a lot of fun and learned a lot!
