This week, we will continue to discuss the five senses. We will be talking about the colors we see all around us. We will also learn the letter O. Please review the letters that we have already learned: S, P, T and the sounds that they make.
Please have your child practice putting on his or her coat and zipping it up. We are practicing here at school as well. This makes them more independent and more ready for kindergarten. Also, continue to practice buttoning and zipping pants as well as buckling belts.
*Collect letters Oo: Look at magazines or newspaper headlines. Help you child find and cut out Os. Put the letters in an envelope or small box. Have your child count how many letter Os they have in their collection. You can also sort the capital Os and the lower case os into two piles. You can also find pictures of things that begin with O to add to the envelope or box.
*Reading Together: We will read a book called Red Is a Dragon this week. Read other books about colors with your child. Encourage him/her to talk about the illustrations and make predictions. Also, ask your child questions about the story.
