This week, we learned the letter "P". To make the letter "P" you need a big line down, (back up to the top), and a little curve. We are working to remember to always start our letters at the top!
We made "P" is for peacock crafts in our "My First School Book"! We even talked about how the peacock's beautiful feather's have many circle-like shapes in them, to make other animals believe they are eyes! That is spoooooooky, but it helps the peacock protect itself from other animals. We used this understanding as we created our peacock crafts, being sure to use our shapes and add important details.
"P" is for pumpkin! Throughout the week, we worked in our pumpkin-themed sensory bin as we searched for lettered-pumpkins and matched them to our alphabet chart. We also continued to strengthen fine motor muscles as we rolled pieces of pumpkins out of playdough, for our pumpkin playdough. Additionally, we used our understanding of facial features to make pumpkins at the smart board!
Throughout the week, we worked on reading our "My Pp Book". Ask your child to read it to you at home and take time finding all the "P's" together! Also, review the links to songs and short videos with your child, to practice the letter "P" identification, formation, and letter-sound.
