Today was our first "stick project." We used the sticks that the students collected on our nature hike last week to see if we could make letters of the alphabet. Children used one of our letter puzzles to check their work.
We also read the book Alphabet School. This is a wonderful wordless picture book that demonstrates how if you look really hard you can find letters all around you. After we finished it we even found a bunch of letters in the green swirls of our classroom carpet.
We will be using the sticks for a different project each day this week!
