We started letter D today. We had a great sing-along with the Five Little Ducks song. Just as with the last 3 letters of the alphabet, my primary focus is to introduce the letter, get them familiar with writing it, and do the letter craft to remind them of the sound/phonetics with the correct shape. The lower-case letters are briefly introduced, but are not my primary concern yet. So don't be alarmed when you see the lower case letters on some of the work sheets. We'll get to them, but are focusing on the big letters first. Tracing and ocean writing are a great way to learn how to write each letter. The more they write at home, the more they will remember. Erasable markers/dry erase boards are a great way to practice, practice, and repractice.
***Reminder--there's a schedule change next week. We are having Tuesday/Thursday class on MONDAY/Thursday and Wednesday class will still be the same. I've been invited to be a guest speaker for a Women's Seminar up in Sandpoint, ID on Tuesday morning.
