Term 3 Week 2 Writing Letter d

As you read from the topic work blog the first letter for week 2 was letter sound d for Dutch.

As usual we started with the alphabet song where the children practiced saying the alphabet in a fun way as well as practicing the actions associated with each letter.

We then moved on to the formation part were we wrote the letter in the air and in sand.  The children then came up with their own words starting with this letter sound. They mentioned words like drum, dance, daddy, dress, drive, dog, dig, door, doll and Denzel.
