Last week, we reviewed the four basic shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square). We traced each shape, made pictures with them, and used shapes to create a face after reading the book, Making Faces with Shapes. Please review shapes with your child as well as naming colors and counting to 20. Use everyday things to teach and review concepts. For example: What color is that car? How long will it take you to put away your shoes? (Count to see) Play I Spy using shapes and colors (I spy something that is a red square).
This week we will be focusing more on letters. We will decorate our names with shapes, pom poms, and other fun things. We are working on identifying our first names. We will be reading apple books and doing apple crafts. Today we tasted apples to see if we liked green or red apples best.
We will put a bus tag on your child’s bookbag sometime this week. Once we put one on the bookbag, they will no longer need to wear one around their necks. If you change bookbags, please take the tag off and attach it to the new bookbag.
