Today we reviewed the numbers 1 2 3 4 …. Left & Right. On The papers that they brought home today – the children were asked to glue the shapes to their paper. The triangle and the rectangle were to go on the left and the circle and square were to go on the right. This also gave them a review of the shapes and colors as we worked with the right and left sides. They received a stamp on their hand today to remind them of their right hand. We always use our right hand on our hearts when saying the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. Some of the things you can do at home when getting dressed or undressed always say now put on your right – your left shoe, sleeve, leg etc. By the time they get to Kindergarten their Teacher will be thrilled!
Today we introduced the letter H. and the h sound. Some of the items discussed -- heart, horn (ask them what Elvis did when Ms. Marianne blew the horn) :D) , hanger, hat, helmet, horse, house. The children helped read a letter H picture story today. While I read the words they said the name of the pictured object. I pointed to the words as I read the story the children were encouraged to do the same. Teaching them the left to right pattern of reading. Try this at home with them – they really enjoyed helping with the story. On Friday please send in an item that begins with the letter H. If you can’t find an item a picture or magazine clipping will do.
