Abc’s here we come!

Wonderful Wood Acres families,

Learning the alphabet is one milestone that we tend to mark as an indication of a child’s successful entry into the world of reading. Mrs. Thomas and I have planned many fun filled learning activities to help your child become successful throughout this unit by utilizing materials such as magnet letters, white boards, and alphabet flash game cards.

This week, we will focus on the letters a and b. During circle time we will discuss objects that begin with these letters. For creative art, we will make ants and paste it onto the letter a. For the letter b, we will create a bear and paste it onto the letter b. For handwriting, we will introduce the proper way to form these letters by using shaving cream. For math, we will be tasting red, green, and yellow apples and graphing to determine which is the overall favorite.
