During our morning work time, the children found pictures that start with the letter ‘B,’ and they glued the pictures on a beehive.

During our large group time, we continued to focus on the letter ‘B,’ and we talked about the difference between the lowercase ‘b’ and ‘d.’ We also read the book ‘One Bee On A Bus’ together, and some of the children used our word slapper to ‘slap’ our sight word ‘the.’

Learning Centers:
Small group with me: We completed and read the book ‘Baseball Hat Colors’ together.

Sensory Table

Literacy: The children practiced writing the letter B, and they made this letter out of play dough.

Math: The children completed pattern designs with our colorful pattern blocks.

Literacy/Craft: The children blew bubbles with food coloring onto paper.

Welcome to Kindergarten!  It’s been an exciting first week of school!

Take home binders will be sent home tomorrow (Tuesday, August 19).

Included in your child’s binder: Montly hw (focus standards and letter studies are included for each week), sight word flash cards, sight word readers, and monthly snack and event calendar.  Sight word flash cards may stay home.  I suggest storing them in a ziploc bag so you can reference them throughout the year!

Have a great evening!
