Letter C Book from Reading the Alphabet

This is the second day that we use this book. So today we are going to look through the pictures again. As we look through the pictures we will identify the initial sounds of the words. When we finish our initial sounds, I will read to them the first pages and then allow them to finish the story for me.

Pocket Chart Book from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity we will need a pocket chart. I am going to place the sentences in the pocket chart and read the text aloud. I am going to use a pointer to point to the words as I read them. After each sentence, my children can add the picture that goes with it. When we complete all of the sentence strips, they will each take turns reading the sentences.

Rhyming Mat from Reading the Alphabet

For this activity we will take the rhyming mat picture and the small pictures. We will look at each picture and name them. The ones that rhyme with the top picture will be glued to the mat.

Letter C Book from Reading the Alphabet

We are going to start our day by re-reading this book together. Then I will sit with each child on their own and listen to them read the books.

Pocket Chart Book from Reading the Alphabet

This is the second day that we have used the pocket chart book. Today we will start with me reading the sentences to them. Again, they will add the pictures to the sentence strips. Then they will take turns reading the story to me.

Syllable Count and Clip from Reading the Alphabet

This activity is going to be a game for us. We are going to lay down each card one by one. I will start by clapping out each syllable. For example “tur-tle” is two claps. I will repeat each word with claps one time. The second time I will have them clap with me as we say the word together. Then I will ask them how many claps was that? Once they tell me how many claps, we will take the clothespin and clip it onto the number.

Once we go through all of the cards, I am going to give them to the girls and let them try it by themselves.

Sight Word Wall

Today we will add our sight word to the word wall.

*Here are a few other Read Alouds for you to choose from.

My Granny Loves Hockey by Lori Weber My Granny Loves Hockey

After reading with them, have your child look at books for about 5 minutes on their own. Sit with your child and let them retell the story that they just looked at. This is important to prepare your child for reading.



Today we are using our Learn the alphabet workbook and Manuscript Writing for the letter C. The girls are writing the letter C and identifying letters in it on page 3 in the Learning the alphabet workbook. In our Manuscript Writing page we are completing the letter C on page 4.

*I have them work in the workbooks during this time because it allows me time to transition and take care of their brother.


Today we are practicing writing the letter C on their handwriting paper.

Writing story: Write about playing sports. Let your child draw a picture and practice writing their own story. You can dictate for them.


Today the girls will be doing the Print Awareness from Reading the Alphabet. For this activity they will need to trace the picture and letter. Then they will help me cut out the sentences and mix up the words. They then will help me reassemble the sentences so that they read correctly. We will glue them onto a piece of paper.
