What's new?!

I have not been as consistent with the blog over the last few weeks.  It is very busy here at Inch By Inch right now. We have a lot of friends who are still adjusting to the routine and new friends.  I find that I don't have my camera on hand quite as often as I used to. There are many times during the day that I see different things happening when I wish I was getting photos.

We have been working on our letters of the week. The kids seem to enjoy the different activities we do at circle time that incorporate the letters.  We "sharpen our pencils" (pointer finger) and practice writing the letters in the air. I am sure they would love to give you a demonstration of how this works. :)  It involves a lot of fun sound effects and of course blowing the dust off the tip of our "pencils."  We often sing songs that are related to the letter and point it out on the calendar and in books we are reading. Of course I am sure many of you are noticing the printed out Letter People in their mailboxes.

We really enjoyed reading and reflecting on the Goal Sheets.  This was the first time we have used them at preschool and I found it really helpful to know what parents are thinking and expecting.  I hope they were useful to you in some way as well.  Please feel free to approach Dana or myself at anytime with questions, concerns or feedback. The more connected we all are, the more the children will benefit.
