Feeding Our Brains
We have been working on PreK Guideline III.B.6. which says, "Child can produce a word that rhymes with a given word." We have done several activities to learn that rhyming means that the words sound the same at the end. Make sure to ask your student about "Erasing the Rhyme."
In math, we are learning how to add two numbers together. We have a workstation in our classroom that has two tubes that lead to a big tub. Students can add two sets of manipulatives by sliding one set down one tube, and the other set down the other and counting the total.
Dinner Time Learning
Literacy:You can encourage your student's understanding of rhyming by making up a silly story together with rhyming words, or by having your student come up with words that rhyme with the food on their dinner plate.
Make sure to ask your students about the "Adding Slide." You can promote your student's knowledge of addition by asking them to add their vegetables with their meat or the boys with the girls at the table.
