OPENING ACTIVITY: Playdough letters – children rolled out playdough into “snake” shapes to form letters on cards. The cards guide them as to how to form the letter.
LETTERS: We learned B & R this week. They are still frog jumps, but the R introduces a diagonal line. We listened to a song about diagonal lines and made the lines in the air with our hands. We refer to the diagonal as a “slide” because that is where most children have seen a diagonal, so they can think of it as drawing a slide down from the middle of the R.
CLOSING ACTIVITY: We did a color by letter paper that says “I Love Fall.”
