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 presenting over a wide assortment of alphabet shares, the students learned that they would be working on a super special activity.  This activity would be 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 looked puzzled when the teachers explained that the students would be working together to BECOME the alphabet!  The students could hardly contain their excitement; they could not wait to get started!

After morning meeting, the students headed to their morning activity stations.  As each name was called, the students headed over to discuss how to create their assigned letter.   The taller friends took care of the longer parts of the letter while the shorter friends proved very useful in completing the letter shapes!   A few strategically folded legs, several hardworking days and Voilà – the students had created the…

On Monday and Tuesday afternoon, the students put their alphabet knowledge to  the test when they worked together to create a “Food Alphabet” and an “Animal Alphabet”.   In order to do so, the students needed to name an animal for EACH  letter of the alphabet – even the ones at the end!  Be sure to check out the Food Alphabet from Monday!

The letter shaping continued into Wednesday and Thursday and so did Spanish class.  The students completed the last week of  the unit – La Transportación. vocabulary and even learned the following song.

Transportation Song

(Tune of “This Itsy Bitsy Spider”)

A carro is a car,

and a barco is a boat.

Avión is a plane,

and tren is train.

Bicicleta is bike,

and camión is truck.

Helicóptero is helicopter,

Autobus is bus!

 

Friday began with a special PPA Daddy morning visit!  The Daddy photographed below came in with his daughter that morning and stuck around to read aloud of not one – but TWO – stories to the class!  What a great way to start the day – a special PPA Thank You to this Daddy for being such a great guest!

By Friday afternoon, the final few letters were added and the “PPA Alphabet” was complete!  In order to commemorate the students’ learning and hard work all throughout the 2013-2014 school year, the teachers led a technology presentation on Friday afternoon displaying all of the students’ letters!  They had such a fun time identifying which letter was on the screen, especially when the teachers showed the letters out of order!  Take a look below to try it for yourselves!

Which letters do you see?

Way to go!!

 

We hope that you enjoyed playing along!  We also hope that this super craft helps serve as a tool to reinforce all of the fun and learning that took place throughout this AMAZING school year!  Well, that is all for “Alphabet Review Week!”  As always, thank you for  reading and we will see you next week!  Have a safe and wonderful  holiday weekend!
