The Pre-K, speech and language class cannot wait to start the New Year. We have almost finished our theme ‘at school,’ but we will begin the New Year reviewing school rules. We will be reading books and acting our skits with our letter people friends, as they show us how to get along with others at school and what makes a friend. We will review the letters and corresponding speech sounds from last year. This time we will practice finding our speech sounds in the final word position and also contrast similar looking or sounding letters (like M versus W and P versus B) by sorting pictures into the correct mail box for our letter people. We will begin to introduce our new theme, “All about Me,” by expressing what makes us special, drawing pictures of ourselves and our interests. We will begin our ME bag, whereby a child a week gets to fill the ‘Me’ bag with items that represent what we like, do and feel to discuss during show and tell. Most exciting of all, we will begin to play letter/sound games on the promethean board featuring our friends, “The Letter People,” to review what we learned in 2016!
