ALL ABOUT SPIDERS!

This week, our theme is "Spiders!" Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to discuss spiders. The letter S will be introduced. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with S. They can also point out the letter S. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. The color BLACK will be introduced! We will be identifying, naming and spelling black. In math, we will be counting groups of 8, writing the number two and focusing on the square.
