Well, school started over 2 weeks ago already and I have been so busy I haven't posted anything! My poor Ian was so sick that I miss 3 days of school during the first 2 weeks. All is better now and we are settling into a routine at school and working on correcting behavior that was ignored by the substitute teachers.
We have been finding letters in our names and not in our names from magazines. It is not only working on letter identification but also fine motor. Some kids really need work with scissors and how to correctly use glue (which can really be a disaster some times).
We have also been working on making letters and numbers with playdough. Of course, we first learned how to correctly use playdough and then had exploration time before we worked.
