We will be reinforcing "alligator fingers" and "always start your letters at the top.
(How to make a Q: Q is a Center Starter " Start at the Top in the Center, Big Curve Down, Keep going back to the top, Don't Forget to add the Queen's diagonal finger (she points)")Qis a Magic C Letter

Small Groups
-Number Hunt- We will search for hidden numbers in bowls. When we find them we will label and match the numbers on our papers. We will then color to record each number we find.

- Community Houses- We will be rainbow writing our names on houses and cutting out squares and triangles to create a house name for each of us.

- Stack and Roll-We will experiment with 3-dimensional blocks to determine if they roll, stack or do both.  Spheres roll. Rectangular prisms stack. Cylinders both roll and stack! Discuss geometrical shapes you find in your home and ask your child to predict if they will roll, stack or do both!

-Rhyming Bingo- We will review how rhyming words "sound alot alike" such as bat and cat. Then we will play a game of bingo by listening to a word then finding the picture that rhymes with the word we heard.

-Shape Bingo- We will each create our own bingo boards by cutting and gluing shapes to the board.  Then we will play bingo to identify the shapes we know.

-Counters in a Cup- We will be counting 4 double-sided chips.  Working with a friend, we will dump the cup and count how many chips are yellow and how many chips are red. We will record our colors on our papers and compare them with another group.

Rhyming Bingo- We will be reviewing words that rhyme.  "They sound a lot alike at the end" Then we will be playing a rhyming bingo game.

Geometric Sorting- We have introduced the concept of 3D shapes: cube, cone, sphere, and cylinder.  We will sort real-world geometric shapes.
