Our topic this week was body parts. We did the usual things, like head shoulders knees and toes, and drawing and labeling bodies. We also did a lot of work with making letters out of our bodies. We tried making letters individually and with friends. Our kids really enjoyed this activity. They are still learning about how their bodies work too, so they especially enjoyed the poses which require balance. We plan to make a little book that shows all of the written letters, some examples of the letter, and the photo of the shape they made. We will add it to our library for the kids to read during work time. I predict they’ll be really into looking through their photos and learn about letters along the way.
Also, our whole kindergarten spelled out the word Montessori for the school calendar.
We also made an alphabet mini book with our letter pictures!
