B is for Balls
Today we read Blueberries for Sal, a classic. I pointed out the B in blueberries then pointed to the words as I read. When Jake saw the word blueberries he would say, "B for Blueberries!" I was overly enthusiastic and praised him for 'reading!'
Next, I had Jacob practice making circles. I asked him to trace around the various balls on the page. He can make circles (more like ovals) but this practice will help him with fine motor skills. We used the dry erase crayons and he made the circles, erased and made them again.
Lastly, I had Jake dot paint the letters. This is just another strategy to work on letter identification, letter formation and motor skills.
