Anyway, today was A. So here's what we did:
We started with a story.
Then we peeled our apples and put them on to simmer.
Then we made some alligators to go along with our story.
If you're familiar with the Montessori method, you may know about sound drawers. It's been a while since I've had a preschooler, so it was fun to pull out the sound drawers and talk about things that start with A: apple, ant, astronaut.
We traced letter A (big and small made from sandpaper) with our fingers. And then we tried writing it in the salt box.
We made some As from playdough too.

After 15 minutes of play time, class was dismissed! So much fun.
