Today was my first day observing the Pre-K class at Abingdon.
When I first arrived the students were just returning from lunch. Mc Clellen quickly got the class to sit on the carpet to discuss some of the material they had covered earlier that morning.
I would scramble the individual letters and then the student would place the letter below the same letter on his or her name card.
The student would then attempt to name each letter.
The next part of the lesson involved making a letter character. Since the focus of the lesson was on triangles, the letter "t" and the color purple, Trixie Triangle was a purple triangle who's name started with "t." Mrs.
Mc Clellen had a triangle with everyone's name written on it and before students could leave the carpet to return to their seats they had to identify which triangle had their name on it.
At the pre-school age letters are still pretty difficult.
Most students could only name two or three letters within their name.
10/3/12 - Today I worked with more of the students on the letters in their names and on cutting out a square. A number of them wanted to hold the scissors upside down.
Many of the students were not able to identify every letter that is in their name. It was very difficult for them to cut with their thumb up instead of down.
