Well, Friday was the last day of our introduction to the alphabet. Now, we have been introduced to all the letters and all the sounds...that means Monday we will begin focusing on one letter per week. We read a cute story named, The Letters Are Lost by Lisa Campbell Ernst. So, when we went to get our letters out of our alphabet treasure box, they were gone! Oh no! Well, we went on a treasure hunt first, by singing We're Goin' on a Treasure Hunt by Jack Hartmann. The kids loved this song. It's too cute! Then, we hunted the letters in our classroom. Each child found one letter. Then, we put them back in order on a pocket chart. (J is still missing...hmmmmm....not on purpose....we really can't find it.) (Maybe Lakeshore will send us another one.) We discussed how we need all the letters so that we can make words and read! We sang the ABC song as we pointed to the letters. This was such a fun activity. Oh, and because we were such good treasure hunters we all got jeweled treasures.
After finding all the letters, we each got a big letter to decorate with something that begins with that letter. You'll see in the pictures. There are lots of pictures, but I just couldn't resist.
