Here are the vocabulary words we are working on for the next two weeks:

"one, some, most, all, more, none, numbers, shapes, letters," and "first."

Try to use these words during your daily conversations to reinforce the word and its meaning.  Here are some examples of what you could do:

  • during lunchtime, you could point out who has "more" apple piece, or who has the "most" crackers.
  • When reading a book, point out the "letters."  
  • While playing, you could line up the toys and talk about which one is "first" in line
  • talk about who has "all" the toys and who has "none."
  • Try to figure out what "shape" a plate is, a book is, a wheel is, etc.

Here are the pictures we are also using to teach the vocabulary:

During this unit, you can focus on the language concept of sequencing.  This means that when you are going about your day, try to use words like "first, second, next," and "last," to talk about your daily activities.  This will help your child understand the concepts of those words as well as build their comprehension and story-telling skills. You can use these words to describe what you are doing when you are making a meal, or when talking about what order you will do errands in. When reading a book, you can talk about what happened first, next, and last in the story.  This is a great way to build sequencing skills.

For this unit, we are focusing on the letter "J."  When you are reading books, or signs, or labels, point out the letter "J", help your child write and trace the letter "J," and talk about the sound "J" makes. Talk about words that start with "J" and help your child try to make the "J" sound correctly.
