During the last day of the week we started working with letter sound j.
The children first watched a story during circle time called Story – Jungleberry Jamboree by Helen H Moore
We then discussed the patterns we could make with images in the story such as using the spots on the jaguar, the apples on the tree, the spots on the saxophone which one of the jaguars was playing, the jaguars finger nails, the whiskers of each animal etc.
They also created a jaguar craft using the j as the body of the animal. They struck the head, eyes and ears, arms and legs.
They then created their random spotted pattern by using the back tip of a pencil dipped in paint.
The jaguars are already stuck on our bulletin board outside our classroom.
