Alphabet Assessment

Lily and I also worked on assessing her alphabet knowledge. I showed Lily alphabet flash cards, one at a time. For my records, I wrote down the entire alphabet on a slip of paper and circled the letters she correctly identified. Now I have a much better idea of what to teach her next!

C is for Christmas!

Today Lily and I created a few more Christmas projects and I did an assessment on her alphabet reading skills.

Snowman Calendar

We made a construction paper snowman (I cut and Lily used the glue). I made 25 numbered circles on the snowman. Lily is going to glue one cottonball on a day. She gets practice reading numbers, counting how many days have passed, and counting how many days left until Christmas (how many cottonballs left in the bag).

Shape Christmas Tree

I cut out a piece of green construction paper into the shape of a tree. Then I also cut out a variety of construction paper shaped "ornaments." Lily got lots of practice identifying colors and shapes while she used them to decorate her tree. I also made a star and a trunk to help her practice location words such as "top" and "bottom."
