After only three weeks of school, our classroom has become a literacy wonderland! We read and write all day, and everywhere we look, we see books, words, and our names with pictures. I try to point out some little literacy tidbit whenever I get the chance, and it already paying off! My little prekinders are noticing all kinds of things about books, letters, words, and names! And, it is so fun to watch! Here are some of the things we have been doing to help develop this love for literacy that is growing in my classroom...

It is so fun and exciting to watch them play and learn during centers! The discoveries they make on their own (guided by our discussions during circle time, of course!) are absolutely priceless! I can't wait to see where we are going to be by the end of the year!
