As usual, we blend /m/ words, sort M and m, practice writing M and m, read the a poem that goes with the Mm map card, and look for M and m in their names and in the poem.
Workshop is filled with Mm activities. They get to play with musical instruments (they looooove the giant piano), the marble maze, magnetic animals, Magna-Tiles Moonsand, magnetic mazes, and more!
This week is one of the students’ favorite weeks! The dramatic play area is turned into a market complete with cash register, grocery baskets, grocery carts, purses/wallets, and lots of items to purchase (I ask parents to collect empty boxes over the weekend). Later on during the week, I add strollers and babies, a sandwich counter, and an ice cream counter to keep the market fresh and new all week long.
