We have started to pull more academics into our schedule. We have been working with our names in literacy centers. All of centers are fun and are both academic and social. It has been a great way to learn about one another. We have started learning about the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make through a curriculum called FUNdations. This program introduces anywhere from one to three letters per week. It teaches each letter in a distinct sequence and with a letter name - keyword - sound. We also work on being able to write each letter properly. We have learned three letters so far Tt - top - "t", Bb - bat - "b" and Ff - fun - "f". We are working on making sure that we clip the letter sounds short: "t" instead of "ta", this is VERY important!!
