Small Group Letter Book: Decorating H to look like Harry
(Each week we will be adding a page to our letter book which will be staying at school until we complete all of our letters.  We are creating our own individual Letterlander books

Small Groups
-Sound Eggs- In our unit story, Nora made a variety of different sounds.  We will be listening to different mystery sounds in eggs and trying to match them to objects we think are inside of them.  We will cut and glue our results.
-What's in My Bag- We will be listening to parts of words(onset-rime) We will be listening to 2 parts of word and saying the word together. (ie C- AR). We will have an object in the bag and having them guess what is in the bag by presenting it in onset-rime.
-Block Towers- We will be creating sets of 5 by building towers of 5 and recording the colors we used for each set.  We will be using shaving cream in order to construct our towers as well.  We reinforced 1:1 correspondence and the concept of "total" (in all).
-Subitize How Many?- We will be subitizing (knowing the total of how many without counting) with quantities 1, 2, and 3. We will try to know how many are hiding under a bucket quickly before the teacher covers the total. This is an important skill to learn in both math and reading readiness. We will be using fly swatters to show our answers too for a fun twist.
-Matching Quantities- We will be recognizing sets quickly they sorting quantities onto our charts. Try sorting these cards at home with your child (we call this subitizing)
-Kate will continue to talk to us about our emotions
