We continued our letter of the week with Aa!
We start off with the following letters:
Love it, right?
On Tuesdays, we trace.
Grab this tracer here.
Today's number of the day is:
We did this great activity from one of my favorite people,
We showed our number in many different ways AND she has posters to go along with this!
After that, we were ready to rainbow write our number!
Grab this rainbow write sheet here.
Then we did one of my favorite beginning-of-the-year activities.
10 Apples Up On Top!
We always do this when our number of the day is 10 and we have already introduced AB patterns.
However, each year I get a little better at making this activity more fun and less painless. . . for me.
I set up like this.
Then I have the kids come to the carpet with a green and red crayon.
Under the doc cam I just color the words (everyone colors at different paces, so we only do this much at the carpet and the rest at their seats). Then the kids decide if they are going to use a lion or tiger- they cross out the one that they do not want.
At their seats, the kids finish coloring and cutting.
Then they glue 10 apples up on top of their animal IN AN AB PATTERN! :)
My favorite part? It's a silly hat!
Parent pleaser. Principal pleaser. Kid pleaser.
