This week your child will learn about the letter Dd, and about dogs. Your child can learn that dogs make nice pets. Dogs are alive. Dogs have four legs, ears, and a tail. They may have long or short coats. They may be big like Great Danes or tiny like Pomeranians. They have long, cold, wet noses and sharp teeth. People need to eat right, exercise, drink plenty of water, and get enough sleep to be healthy. Dogs need those things, too!
If your child already has a dog, wonderful! If you’re thinking about getting one, how about now? Otherwise, can you visit a friend who owns a dog? Does your community have a dog park? It would be a great place to go for a field trip, to see a wide variety of dogs and talk with the pet owners about how they take care of their pet.
We’re starting to add a few more concepts to each lesson- so this week we’ll also focus on the Diamond shape, the number four, and the color brown. Your child may practice writing the letter Dd on lined paper. If he is not yet ready for this, then he can try to form the shape of the letter Dd from play dough ropes. He will be counting to four, and sorting colors.
I hope you all have a great time this week!
