Welcome to the new year! I am so excited to see what 2020 is going to bring : )
Our Tools of the Mind theme for this month is hospital. We are going to transform each of our learning centers into different parts of the hospital; a nursery, an emergency room, and a pharmacy.
This month for literacy, we are going to continue to work on name recognition, familiarizing ourselves with uppercase letters, and our pre-reading skills. For our Tools of the Mind activities, we will continue to work on pre-reading through Buddy Reading, moving on to #4 in Graphics Practice (making horizontal lines), and playing a letter hopscotch game!
This month for math, we are going to continue to recognize number 0-5. We also will work on one-to-one correspondence and sorting. For our Tools of the Mind activities, we will work on Remember and Replicate and making collections!
