We use a curriculum called "Handwriting without Tears."
During the year we will build Mat Man on the floor with wood pieces and draw a picture of him.
We will make numbers and capitals with chalk and play-dough. Music and songs will help us develop early math and rhyming.
We will be learning shapes and letters at the same time.
Each week we will highlight a letter.
We also read stories, create crafts to support the sound, make the letter shape with our bodies, and more.
