Today we talked a little more about Letters and the Alphabet. We used our super smart brains to remember that we have been learning about special letters that when they are put together they spell our names. We decided to sing the ABC song to help us remember all of these letters and while we sang the song we cross clapped our hands (clapping back and forth across our bodies) to help our brains remember each letter a little better. After singing our song we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom which is a silly book about the letter climbing up a coconut tree.
After reading our story I had each student come up to place the letters in their name on a HUGE graph to see how many letters were in each one of their name because we would need to know later when we made our very own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Trees.
After putting their tree together and gluing their letter coconuts on everyone counted how many letters and we wrote their names and the number.
Now that I have a better sense of my friends writing abilities you will start seeing a lot more tracing and writing around these parts.
Happy almost Friday
