A Horse, of Course. Rhyming, Short Vowels, and More. (Children’s House 2)

| April 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

Mane, tail, hoof, fetlock. Walk, trot, canter, and gallop. We’re learning all about a new mammal: the horse. And we’ve learned that we can practice all kinds of skills when looking at a horse: from language (the parts of the horse), to math (counting the number of beats in their different gaits), to art (so many color combinations of horses). We’ve also been honing our language and listening skills with new rhyming activities, in songs/music and games during morning meeting, as well as with rhyming cards and challenges. (And we’ve discovered how tempting it can be to “make up” words when trying to come up with a rhyme, too!) Short vowel work also made up a big part of our week, listening closely, and choosing just the right letter to make words that we spell make sense.
