April 10-13 Week 30 /g/

 

Here comes the “guh” sound”. I call this the “baby” sound. Babies say “ga, ga goo, goo”. Please bring the Surprise Bags with an item that begins with “guh”. Suggestions: grapes, golf ball, grass, glasses, goggles, goose, garage, goldfish and gold. Please include 3 clues about the item on a piece of paper (green, round, fruit).

Concepts/Vocabulary:

  • Go/stop: Listen to music. Have your child run in place when the music is on and stop when the music stops.       Use the words go and stop.
  • Glad/sad: Make a list of what makes each of you glad. Then make a list of what makes each of you sad.
  • Good/bad: choose a few foods to taste. Make a chart by drawing a line down the middle of the paper. Put a smiley face on 1 side, sad face on the other . Now taste each food. Does it taste good or bad. Mark the side of the paper for each food. At the end, which side had more?
