I'm sorry I've been MIA this week but we have been super busy in the classroom.
On Monday we started our Post Office unit by watching a Field Trip to the Post Office on the Smart Board and reading a book. Yesterday we discussed mail carriers and made a mail carrier bag. Today we are going to go on a letter, number, and shape hunt around our classroom.
The children have been doing a fantastic job with their jobs.
|How many sweat hearts in the jar- here the children have to roll a die, count the dots, and put that many sweat hearts in the jar.|
|Mailbox Sorting- here the children have to sort upper and lower case letters.|
|Letter Matching- Here the children have to look at the letter on the envelope and find its matching lower case stamp (sorry the picture is blurry).|
|Popsicle Matching- Here the children picked a card with their name or a friend's name and had to find the letter popsicle sticks that match.|
Yesterday we had some extra time before Music so we played Pop the Balloon on the Smart Board. The balloons had a picture on it and each child had a turn to name the picture, figure out what it begins with, and pop the balloon to check their answer. They had a blast playing it!
