So Much Fun and Learning! Oct 3-7, 2022

Some peers have shown great interest in letter tracing these past couple of weeks. We extended it by offering letter tracing worksheets. More children are becoming interested in this activity based on peer imitation. Some children can copy the letter seen, while others are tracing the existing letters . We have observed that some children have the pincer grasp needed to be able to write while others are going to need support. So, we will offer activities next week that will promote development in this area.

We offered a class list to add to the doctors kit. Peers excitedly found their name and while some checked it off others drew the first letter of their name. Fantastic! Going forward we thought we would create a sign in sheet for the children to use every morning when arriving. What a great way to foster name recognition and also a sense of belonging!
