Handwriting Without Tears

We use the program "Handwriting Without Tears." We begin each lesson with songs, reviewing the letter sound, building the letter with the large wood shapes, and then write the letter. We work on a letter each week. This week we are learning all about the letter "E." Handwriting Without Tears also teaches the kids how to write the Uppercase letter and the Lowercase letter. You can learn more here:

Week of September 15, 2014

This week we are learning about the letter "C" and Colors. Miss Debbie's class has been painting on the easel every day, and Miss Carol's class has made pictures of each color every day. We are reading great books and using flannel stories for "Brown Bear Brown Bear."  We are trying to stay cool by reading books in the Gazebo and misting the kids with water.
