Saxon theme this week was “How Can I Visit the World around Me?” We learned different modes of transportation such as cars, bicycles, trains, airplanes,and boats.
Our letter of the week was U/u. We learned a fun letter U song, made letter U soup, and worked on letter sound identification. We learned about the number 17. We also learned about circles and AABB patterns.
We learned about the “upper room” this week during religion (letter “U” in our Catholic ABC curriculum). The upper room is where Jesus and his disciples celebrated the last supper together. We also learned about St. Patrick in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
Creative Dance and Books Come to Life class focused on the dance concept of speed. After the BrainDance, we practiced moving and dancing at different speeds. We also read and acted out the book, Slowly, Slowly Went the Sloth by Eric Carle.
Here some questions to ask your child:
What makes a boat float or sink?
Will you count to 17 for me?
What words start with the letter U?
Who was St. Patrick?
