Today in preschool we started our big body project. Technically, we started in November with our x-ray hands, but we traced the body today.
We reviewed our sight words:
And our letters. We are getting quite good at out letters and loved singing "Little h, Little h fly through my window, find molasses candy. . ." it was fun to plug in the letters instead of birds! The kids love that song. It may, or may not be because I let them have a molasses candy when we sing it (one chocolate chip). Sugar is usually contraband at our preschool, so, a whole chocolate chip? WATCH ME SING!!!
We also started our 'Thankful Trees' today. I introduced gratitude by reading my favorite Thanksgiving book Thankful Together by Holly Davis. It is a darling, rhyming book that teaches thankfulness for daily things and giving thanks to God for those things.
I drew a tree trunk and branches on a piece of fall-colored cardstock and had the kids put thumb prints (thankful thumbs. . .t and h make a special sound. .. never too early to introduce it!) and then I wrote something they are thankful for on the print. Each day we will do two or three and fill up our thankful trees. I love hearing the sweet things that these kids come up with that they are thankful for.
A few from today:
All on their own!
