“Spanish Review Week” is next!

Hello all,

“Alphabet Review Week” was Awesome, Brilliant, Crazy, Delightful, Excellent, Fabulous, Great, Hilarious, Incredible, Jubilant, Kooky, Laughtastic, Marvelous, Neat, Outstanding, Perfect, Quirky, Radical, Superb, Tremendous, Unbelievable, Vibrant, Wonderful, eXhilarating, Yummy and Zany! Whew! That was a lot of work but not nearly as much work as the students did all year long while studying those letters! Read on below to see what the students did to commemorate the school year and also the alphabet!

After discussing a wide assortment of alphabet shares, the students learned that they would be working on a super special activity. The teachers explained that this activity was so special, it would require not one morning work session but rather a full week of morning work in order to complete it! The students could hardly contain their excitement when the teachers began explaining the project that they would soon begin working on – their very own I SPY the PPA ABC’s!

In order to complete this project, the students were split up into small groups and assigned a particular letter.  For instance, the students below were all given the letter H and then asked to locate one classroom item that began with H and one item that did not.  Once the items were collected, the students shared the items with the other members of their group to ensure that none of the items were repeated and also to confirm that they did begin with the special letter that was assigned.  Once all of the items were reviewed, the students arranged them to create a special I SPY photograph for their given letter!  To ensure that all students had the chance to “spy” for each letter, the I SPY PPA ABC puzzles were shared on the school’s online photo gallery.  Take a look below at the I SPY that was created for the Letter E!

 

 

Well, did you find all six items?  Be sure to view the bottom of this blog post for a link to the entire alphabet full of “I SPY” games created by the PPA students!

 

 

During the afternoons of Alphabet Review Week, the students worked together to create various lists using the entire alphabet!  The students listed everything from Foods ABC’s, to Name ABC’s, to Things at PPA ABC’s!  Take a look below to see the students’ Animal Alphabet!  They did such an amazing job!

Wow!  The students sure did a phenomenal job studying the alphabet this school year!  Here are the letters and topics they explored. A is for Alligators, B is for Baseball, C is for Colors, D is for Dr. Seuss, E is for Emergency, F is for Fire Safety, G is for Gooey/Gummy, H is for Helping, I is for Iguana, J is for Jellyfish, K is for Keys, L is for Library, M is for Mail, N is for Numbers, O is for Ostrich, P is for Pirates/Princes/Princesses/Pajamas, Q is for Questions, R is for Rainbow, S is for Spring, T is for Teeth, U is for Under the Sea, V is for Veggies, W is for Whales, X is for… X, Y is for Yoga, and  Z is for Zebra!

Whew! That sure was a lot to learn about! Looking back at all of the letters that were studied makes you realize what an amazing school year the 2012-2013 school year has been! The good news is that there is still much more learning to take place and fun to be had as we head into the final weeks of the school year! We can hardly wait!  As always, thank you for reading. Have a fun and safe weekend. We will see you next week!

-PPA
