This week went fast! We had some catching up to do from our snow days last week, but the children are doing a great job! I was looking ahead at our calendar and we only have about 7 weeks before we dismiss for summer! Wow!
We've been having a special 2nd Grader read a Bible story to us each day. This is a great way to begin our morning after our prayer! Thank you, Mrs. Hagarman and 2nd grade for sharing your reading talents and time with us!
This week, the Terrific Threes learned that we can move. God loves us very much and created us to be able to move our bodies. We can also use movement and dance to praise God. We had fun with our prayer dancing!
The Terrific Threes also learned about the shape of a diamond or rhombus. We had songs and games to help us recognise this shape. We have one more activity to finish up next week before moving on to a new shape.
We have also started introducing rhyming games. They are doing great with this new skill. This one does take time to master, so we all need to be patient and practice! Reading rhyming stories at home is a great way to help!
Some of our friends started learning to trace their names this week. Please continue to practice name recognition at home. This will be very important skill to start next year in the Fantastic Fours.
I posted some pictures below (under the Fantastic Fours updates).
This week we learned that God made animals. God made all animals big and small, but none are as special as us! Over the next few weeks, we will be learning in more detail some of the animals God created.
The snow days have messed with our usual routine of learning a letter a week. Until we catch back up, we may be completing a letter at the beginning of the week and introducing a new one at the end. We completed our letter R activities and began the letter S. The children really enjoyed "The S Song!" I posted the YouTube link below.
We have also been reviewing the numbers 1-6 and rhyming words. The children have been practicing writing their first names. Next week, we will begin learning to recognize last names. For preschool, the children do not have to be able to write their last names, just identify them.
