In Language Arts, we introduced the letters M and C. We reinforce learning the letter by practicing to write the letter as well as discover items in our mystery box that begin with the letter of the week.. Our class also loved the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Alphabet match. We read “Go Away Big Green Monster” and the "What If Monster" for letter M. For letter C, we read “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”, “Pete the Cat Rocking in his School Shoes” and “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”.

In Math, we rolled the dice and counted out the number of eyes to place on our monster and counted chocolate chips on wooden cookies.

In Art, we decorated the letters M and C as well as used play dough to create monster faces on mats and chocolate play dough to roll and press out “cookies”. The class really enjoyed making tree bark rubbings on the trees near the pond.

In the sensory table, we explored magnets hidden in shredded paper. The class also used their magnet wands to test items in the classroom to see what was magnetic and non-magnetic. For letter C week, we had corn kernels to measure and pour in the table with alphabet letters.
In dramatic play, our class took turns operating the grocery store. We had items sorted by category: vegetables, fruit, canned goods and dairy products as well as shopping lists to follow.
