Today we starting using our symbols and pictures as cues for reading. Symbols help us learn and understand the world around us. We can use these symbols to decipher what a picture, word, or sign means! Aya noticed that red can mean stop and seeing a red sign could also mean stop. Symbols may start as cues and signals. If a child recognizes a cue out of context, that cue may be acting as a symbol. We also celebrated Hucks’ birthday! During inquiry time we each made Huck a birthday card and practiced writing our name. And had Birthday Interview to get to know Huck better! Here are today's conversation starters:
“Ask Me About”
Today we had library. What book did you pick out?
What question did you ask Huck during his birthday interview?
There is a new material in our classroom today. Can you remember what it is? (water and soup added to sensory table!)
