(No pictures. I can't get my button to work!)
Monday - Read the book and did the worksheet, except that instead of finding the words, I had N circle the "m"s that she found. She had no trouble finding them, and she did a really good job with tracing the letter.
Tuesday/Wednesday - I don't remember what we did on these two days! Where is my memory going?!?!
Thursday- We talked about the "M" sound and then N had to find 10 pictures of the 15 or so that I had cut out that began with "M" and glue them onto an "M" paper. She did really well with it. A couple of the pictures that I had chosen that did begin with "M" she named as something else (mitten/glove), so it was good that I had a few extra "M" words.
Friday - I set up an Uppercase/Lowercase letter clothespin activity. I had thought that it would be a great learning experience and we'd get to talk about how some were the same and others were different. NOT AT ALL. The only letters N didn't right the first time, with no guidance from me, were "d" and "q". She had fun, though, and I learned that she's been paying attention!
We began this week and N LOVES it! This week we used:
- wheat, with scoops and bowls
- base ten cubes (N called them little teddy bears.[?]). She had a hard time putting them together at first, but got the hang of it (and didn't give up!)
- toothpicks, into a container with holes in the top. Not N's favorite, which surprised me.
- foam shape puzzles. Also not her favorite, though she liked them more than the toothpicks.
