New this week: a pocket chart found at the Target Dollar Spot. Can you tell I love that section?? I am using this one to display our poems for each letter: the saint poem from An Alphabet of Catholic Saints and the poem from the book God's Alphabet. I printed them up using the Startwrite handwriting software, just like the theme words seen in the tabletop chart in the next photo.
These are soooo good, so when I saw them at TJ's back in August, I snatched up a box and hid it to save for the first day of fall!
Punch out the letter: B and b, showing more much more control than the A from last week. I am finding this to be excellent fine motor practice!
So, one thing that I am doing in addition to working on number concepts with Caroline is using this book, Number Practice for Little Folks. It is very basic - very, very basic. But, there are pages with number printing practice, and Caroline does not yet know how to form letters. So that is the main reason for using it. I like that it has a Catholic theme though - it reinforces religious concepts. For instance, the number seven includes information about the seven sacraments.
