This week we celebrated our mastery of our letter sounds and recognition of our consonants. Our centers were all ABC themed and our literature activities and projects were all ABC themed. We also worked on short a this week and tied that into the alphabet activities.
We read The Mixed-Up Alphabet and then had to put all the mixed up pictures in order from A-Z. We read A My Name is Alice and made a class book using ___my name is __________ and I like ______________. They were really cute. We also read There is a Zoo in Room 22. Then we brainstormed pets we would like to have in room 405! One last book we read was Dr. Seuss’’s ABC and we created our own class book using the riddle from the story: Big ___ Little ___. What begins with _____. _______ and ________ begin that way. Samples of each of the class books is in the picture above. At one of the centers they listened to These Letters Are Lost then they had to match pictures to the correct beginning sound. At another center they worked with pictures and that were missing the beginning letter and they had to decide where to write words from A-Z. Another favorite center was puzzles…lots of ABC puzzles!
