Theme: Rhyme Time
Week of: November 28 – December 2, 2022

We present rhyming concepts throughout the school year as part of our language curriculum. This week a more concentrated focus will be offered to help develop this important pre-reading skill. At circle time we will play rhyming games and read a selection of popular rhyming books and nursery rhymes. A variety of rhyming activities will follow at the learning centers.

Highlights of the week’s activities include:

  • using the felt board figures to recite nursery rhymes,
  • cutting out twinkle, twinkle stars
  • painting five little monkeys
  • singing Down By the Bay by Raffi and Laurie Berkner’s Nursery Rhyme medley at music time.çThe letter of the week activity is J is for jellyfish.Reminders, Requests, and other info:
