Kindergarten CVC Awareness

Hello Early Childhood Colleagues!

Below is a link to a video that is posted on the Teaching Channel. It is of a kindergarten classroom practicing CVC Awareness. The Students are sounding out, blending and reading CVC words then making the motions.


Kindergarten Letter of the Week

Wow-It's been almost a month since my last post!
Well, I've been surfing the Teaching Channel for some Early Childhood videos and I found this one and wanted to share it with you. It's a kindergarten classroom that walks you through the routine of "Letter of the Week". This Teacher uses a story, a song and an art project as she introduces each letter.
So if you are an Early Childhood teacher take a couple minutes to watch.
