This week, we will be looking at the letter "S". Every day there will be a letter "S" activity. Children learn in so many different ways, and this includes learning the letters in a variety of different ways. These letter activities teach how to write the letter and the sounds of the letter!
Today, we will be learning the letter "S" through Movement and Song.
- Five (5) Pieces of Paper
- One (1) Black Marker
Step 1: The adult should use a black marker to write the follow Song Names, writing one Song Name on each piece of paper.
- Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
- Old MacDonald Had a Farm

- Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Step 2: Place the five sheets of paper on the floor, about 3 to 4 feet between each piece of paper. The papers should not be place in a straight line.
Step 3: Tell the child to lie on their stomach, on the floor, and squiggle across the floor like a snake until they touch one of the pieces of paper.
Step 4: Once they reach the paper, ask them to read the name of the song that is written on that piece of paper.
Step 5: Sing the song that is on that paper (see Appendix B for words to songs).
Step 6: Repeat Step 3 and Step 4 until all songs are sung.
