Weekly Letter 9-18-2014

Dear Point Beach Prep Families,
This week we met our letter doll Miss A. She has allergies and sneezes “a-a-a-choo!” We learned the different sounds A makes and what it looks like as a capital and lower case letter. We wrote the letter A with pencils, chalk, and markers. We read many stories such as Ten Apples Up On Top, Amazing Apples, Ant in Her Pants, The Lady with the Alligator Purse, and Johnny Appleseed. We talked about who the author and the illustrator of the stories were. At our project table we made apple stamps, fingerprint ants, made an apple project and labeled each part of the apple, alligator A’s and a painter’s tape reveal A. We were busy!
At snack time we sampled red, yellow, and green apples to see which one was our favorite. We then made an apple graph to determine which color more students liked. What is your guess? Check out our graph hanging in the hallway to see if you are right!
We also made our very own applesauce with our apples. Everyone helped and was very proud of their homemade treat.
We showed the class our sight word tree and made our first leaf the word “a.” Yes, it is a letter and a word! Ask the children to find it in your stories!
We talked about what sign language is and why we use it. This week the children learned “a” and “amazing.” What an amazing week it was!
See you next week with letter doll Mr. B!
