I just love Sundays when I know I have the next day off. Don’t you?
So this week, we learned how to put words into ABC order. It has come up casually over the year, such as Hey! All the names that begin with A are on the top row of the cubbies! or I think I know why Zoe is the last one in line, but I haven’t formally introduced it. Not to mention, I have had a kind of revolving door and so my perfectly perfect “Kids Are In Alphabetical Order By First Name” is no longer perfect, and actually makes me look like I don’t know how to alphabetize when Abigail’s cubby comes between Jack’s and Kate’s.
(All names have been changed to protect whatever.)
I started out our lesson by using the Houghton Mifflin Sound/Spelling Cards that are a part of my curriculum.
I put out three cards and had the kids help me get them “in order”. We even sang the ABC song which made all of us nostalgic for preschool.
I know that song! I sang that song in preschool!
I love this song!
Why don’t we ever sing this song?
Because it’s a baby song!
No, it isn’t!
Memories. Anywho . . .
