This morning we discussed the letter M. I told the container story and then the Princess and the Glass Mountain. I really followed the great suggestion of reading that story 3 nights in a row. I couldn't believe how much I absorbed and was able to re-tell to them. It was a treat to watch their eyes and facial expression while I was telling.
I had the blackboard drawing ready this morning. The girls drew the new form and then did capital and lowercase M. Then they drew from the story in their main lesson books. We talked of other words that begin with M.
What fun! I can't wait to see what they will re-tell tomorrow.
