we love our MOMS!!

Today's LBQ was "What do you love most about your mom?" We learned that the children all have great mom's who make them cookies, tuck them in at night, and give them hugs and kisses! Good job MOMS and Happy belated Mother's Day!!!

After calendar time we read, Mama Do You Love Me? by Barbara M. Joosse and made a fun craft for our Mama's! If you haven't found your surprise yet, make sure to check folders and cash in on each flower. :)

After snack time we reviewed what a semi-circle is and sang our song and played 'freeze!' around the semi-circle. The kids were all smiles as they danced, jumped, ran, and even crawled around the shape. Whenever the music stopped they all did their best to FREEZE!

Then we reviewed our ABC's. We sang the alphabet song opera style (a favorite) and dinosaur style and plain old 'in our best voices' style. We looked at different letters and remembered what sound they made. We especially reviewed Dd. We sang our song again and looked at pictures of things that start with Dd: Dog, Dinosaur, Diamond, and Ducks.

Then we introduced Qq. We learned the ASL sign for Qq and sang our song and colored a page for our books!

The Letter Qq
to the tune of Frere Jacques
The letter Q. The letter Q. (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)
/q/ /q/ /q/! /q/ /q/ /q/! (Make ASL sign for letter, move hand forward and backward for each sound)
Get ready for a lot of pictures!! I think we were trying to compensate for the last class!
