During morning meeting, we play a game called "What's the first sound in your name?" In this game, children wear a picture of an animal and have to say the first sound they hear when that name is said (i.e. lion starts with the LLLLLLLLL sound...it begins with the letter L). This is a fantastic way to reinforce those early literacy skills we've been working on this year. Ask your child which animal he/she was and which letter it began with!
"Growing" flowers with paint and cookie cutters.
