Today, Little Miss is on her second day with the letter I and so we worked on the concept of inches. Measurement is still a tricky idea to grasp, so I don't worry too much about how detailed I get here. The idea is that you are introducing the word, and giving follow up to the use of "inches" to measure.
Yesterday, we talked about inchworms and we watched the video showing inchworms moving along. Today, I printed out this page from our Letter of the Week packet...
And we cut out the "Ruler" on the bottom. I showed her the inches and we counted them together, and then we measured the insects together. Then, she colored in a few of the little bugs.
And then, we watched a book video of Leo Lionni's "Inch By Inch" picture book. This gal does a fabulous job reading it out loud, if you need a link:
That's about as good as you can get for a preschool follow-up to both inches and inchworms!
The last thing we did today (since Little Miss was still in the mood to do more), was her Matching Game.
As usual, we chatted about each of the pictures and the words they represented as we go.
