This week we started our letter of the week. Each week the children will learn about a new letter. This week was Ff. We are discussing the difference between uppercase and lowercase, how to write the letters and what sounds they make. Each Thursday your child will be sent home with a homework activity. Please take the time to complete the activity with your child. The idea is for you and your child to think of or find things in your home that begin with that weeks letter. Then have your child draw a picture of it on their paper as well as write the word. Please encourage your child to do the drawing and writing!! For instance, write the word fish and draw a picture of one! The children will be presenting their homework to the class every Monday.
During small group and work time, the children built letters using connectors. This activity helped the children understand the what makes a letter (straight lines/curved lines) as well as letter identification.
