Today, we completed Starfall "D".
As we listen/watch/read "Starfall D" we take turns touching each button, letter, or word. We wait and raise our hand to participate. We identify upper case and lower case Dd. We identify words that start with 'D' and the /d/ sound that 'D' makes. With this, it helps us understand that letters make up words, words have meaning, and we can use pictures (as clues) to help us identify words.
At the end of Starfall "D" we got to play a special game called "Make A Match". This activity helps us strengthen executive function as we engage in games that involve remembering (e.g., memory), while also strengthening math skills (matching) and literary understanding (identifying the letter, letter sound, and a word that begins with that letter).
Ask me what happened when we got all the matches correct! Ask me what we saw on the screen. Or try it at home, here:
