M found Bob, our Elf on the Shelf, stuck inside our popcorn machine this morning!Read More
This past week M and I practiced the letter/sound correlation of the letter C. M has a tendency to pronounce the /c/ sound as /t/, so we focused on enunciating words that had /c/ as its initial, middle, or end sound. One of the many words we practiced was the word ‘cloud’, so I thought it would be fun to do some activities around clouds using two great books: Little Cloud, by Eric Carle, and It Looked Like Spilt Milk, by Charles G. Shaw.Read More
S is for seeds- another letter to add to M’s tactile alphabet
The last couple of days, M and I have been having fun with activities revolving around the letter S. We’ve been talking a bit about plants and how they grow, so I thought it was a good time to introduce M to one of my favourite flowers: the sunflower.Read More
The weather has been pretty unpredictable these past few days: warm and sunny, cold and rainy, and even some large fluffy snowflakes (sometimes all in one day!) M doesn’t seem to mind though. No matter what the weather is, he’s just happy to be outside!Read More
Today M and I focused on the sound-to-letter correlation of the letter E. He knows E is a happy letter because when you say it’s short sound, your lips form into a smile. I printed off some pictures of things that start with the letter E, and then cut out the letter E from some card stock.
M started by verbally labeling each picture. The second time he labeled them, I had him exaggerate the initial sound, and then say what letter each object starts with (eg. ‘elk, /e/- elk starts with E’). He grasped onto this quite quickly.
