Today after calendar time we sang some of our favorite Christmas songs. We sang "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and a lot of "Jingle Bells". :)
We read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, a really fun twist to The Gingerbread Man.
Then we continued on with our Christmas book. Today we decorated angels.
After snack we reviewed some of our fundamentals. The kids drew some letters, numbers, colors, or shapes out of a bag and we talked about them.
We introduced the letter Jj.
The Letter Jj
to the tune of Frere Jacques
The letter J. The letter J. (make ASL sign for letter, showing one hand then the other)
Has a sound. Has a sound. (bring 1 hand to ear and then the other hand to the other ear)
What sound do you make? What sound do you make? (palms facing up, shrug shoulders)
/j/ /j/ /j/! /j/ /j/ /j/! (Make ASL sign for letter, move hand forward and backward for each sound)
And we talked about the number 5. We put 5 Christmas stamps on a card.
And colored 5 Christmas pictures.
