Time for the letter “C”. We began our lesson by practicing the two letters we had already been working on, “A” & “B”, on the dry erase boards. Once we did that for a bit, we grabbed the pre-school books out of their boxes, and began to work on the letter “C”. We started by tracing the letter “C” several times. The activities in the book involved identifying/finding the letter “C” and coloring it a certain color. We worked on learning “C” in three parts, as we do with all letters. “C, Ca, Cat” Letter, sound then a word. Out came the dry erase boards again so we could practice writing the letter “C”. Again, as with each letter, I begin by making the letter form in dots and having the children connect the dots, then I took dots away until they could make the letter on their own. “C” was more difficult to learn for them then I had anticipated. For a craft in relation to “C”, we used paper, popsicle sticks, glue, pom-poms and googlie eyes. The children glued the stick to the paper, the pom-poms to the stick and the eyes to the white pom-pom. There they had their “C”aterpillar”.
After rest we had a lot of outside fun. Running races , swings, pig pile fun, leaf piles and one Mom got involved with “You can’t catch me”, except she did catch him. Then I did a short photo session with the “P” brothers. So cute.
I hope you enjoy the photos. I think they reflect our day well.
