Meet our Letterlander of the Week: 
Golden Girl
We will continue to have a special art project based on this Letterlander.   We are creating an alphabet book that will be completed by the end of the school year.

This week we will be doing the following letter activities in small groups: 
Sorting Uppercase and Lowercase: G and g
Fine motor activity to reinforce letter this week: Tracing G in Gold Glitter
We will be reinforcing "alligator fingers" and "always start your letters at the top.
(How to make a G: G is a Center Starter " Start at the Top in the Center, Big Curve Down, Keep going up to middle, Little Line on top ")G is a Magic C Letter

Small Groups This Week:
-Rhyming Cookie Pairs- We will be labeling 2 cookies on a tray.  Then they will identify if the words rhyme or not rhyme.  We will then sort our cookie trays on our papers

-Gingerbread Turn Taking Game- We will take turns spinning a spinner and then record what the spinner lands on.  We will observe which colors the spinner landed on the most, least, or equal.

-Gingerbread House Letter Matching- In groups we will cut and then match letters onto our houses (matching uppercase to lowercase or lowercase to lowercase)

-Gingerbread House matching- We will be cutting pictures of rhyming picture pairs.  We will mix up our pictures.  Then we will place the rhyming pairs in the house.  We will put them in a baggie to take home.  Practice finding the rhyming pairs at home with your child.
