This week we started a unit on "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly". We had a lot of fun reading the story and talking about the different animals she swallowed. We also spent time listening to the story and helping Miss Stephanie put animals on the flannel board in order when the animal we were holding was read. On Thursday and Friday, Miss Stephanie became the old lady and we had to feed the old lady the animals!
Also on the slideshow are pictures of everyone practicing their daily message this week. Every day, we do daily message at circle time. Miss Stephanie says a message like "Today we will read a story". Then she writes one line for each word on the board. She points to the lines and reads it again. Then she writes the words on the lines as she says the message. Then we all read it again. Last, everyone gets their own dry erase board and marker to write the message. Some of us write the message letter for letter, some of us write with letter like symbols and others of us are still scribbling. When we are done, however, we all read back the message we have written.
Here are the pictures!
