During morning circle time children recite the Pledge of Allegiance and review all letters and sounds with emphasis on the letter and number of the week. Students discuss the calendar making sure to recite the days of the week and the months of the year. They discuss the weather and monthly holidays.
In small groups children work one on one on cutting, patterning, and writing letters and numbers. The children do a great job painting and pasting and most of them can write their own name. They complete letter theme books and puppets weekly. The students also act out nursery rhymes and recite stories. They sing many songs and do finger plays.
Communication is key. Everyone is learning how to play in small groups. They look forward to completing the alphabet, counting to 50, and recognizing classmates’ first and last names.
