Alphabits – February 6 and 7, 2013

LETTER OF THE DAY: S
(please note: this is a general idea of what happened during Alphabits. Variations occur between Wednesday and Thursday classes depending on how many children are present, attention level, etc.)

Song: Alphabet Song

Activity: Show and Tell
The children shared what they brought that begins with the letter S!

Story:

Activity: Sock Hop
Since it was 1950s week, the kids took off their shoes and danced to 1950s music in just their socks!

Activity: Word Bingo
Each child was given a coloring page of a sock. In between coloring their pages, letters were chosen out of a basket. If their S word had that letter in it, they circled it. Once every letter in their word was circled, they have BINGO!

Activity: Simon Says
The kids had to do what Simon said!

Song: Shake My Sillies Out
The kids danced to the Raffi song

Activity: Parachute
We brought out the big parachuteWe first shook it really fast. After that, we put on music and the kids danced underneath while the grown-ups held it high.

Song: Alphabet Song
After the parachute, the kids each chose a letter from those scattered on the floor. Then we all sang the Alphabet song one more time; this time, when we say each letter of the Alphabet, the boy or girl holding that letter is encouraged to hold it up high.
