Today we sang the Itsy Bitsy Spider song and used our fingers to make a spider climbing up the waterspout. We pressed our index finger to the thumb on the opposite hand, turned and put the other index finger to the other thumb and continued to turn and press. This was a challenge for some children! Ask me to sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider song and show you the motions. We also looked at the four parts to the story and illustrated them on the back of the song. Watch for this to come home tomorrow!
We learned more about what leaders do. We learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. today. We looked at old photographs of all the people who came to hear him speak. We saw photographs of others leaders too. Ask me to name three leaders.
We learned more about what the president by studying photographs. This is an important skill to develop as we read information texts.
Thanks to everyone who remembered to send back their Read to Me, Talk to Me books. If you didn't send them back today, please send them in tomorrow so your child can get a new book.
