“Letter D is for Dancing Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all

“Letter D is for Dancing Week” was dynamic, dynamite and simply delightful! The students showed up more than ready to discuss the theme of the week and dozens of other D things! Some of the share highlights included: ducks, dragons, Dr. Seuss stories, doctor kits, and more! One student even shared a diaper borrowed from a new sibling! Fortunately, the student did not take the Letter D theme too seriously and bring a Dirty Diaper in for share! Thank you to everyone who brought in shares to help reinforce the letter D.

The students spent both Monday and Tuesday morning working one on one with the teachers to complete their Letter D identification/fine motor activity sheets.  The teachers were so impressed with how easily the new students recognized the letter D and also how well the older students remembered all things “D” during their morning work!  In the afternoon on Monday and Tuesday, the students created the fourth letter list of the year!  Naturally, the letter D list was full of Dozens of answers!  As a whole group, the students took turns brainstorming and contributing words that begin with the letter D and also hunted around the classroom for letter D items!



How many D shares do you see?

Answer:  Dog, Dinosaur, Dolphin, Doughnut, D

Typically on Wednesdays, the students begin their art exploration of the theme of the week and create a craft/art project of some sort.  This time, the teachers explained that the students would be creating art throughout the week but the art would not involve paint, crayons, pom-poms, glitter or any other craft material.  Perplexed, the students wondered how they could create art without any of those materials.  The teachers explained that the students would be creating art by using their bodies – the art of dance!  Throughout the week, the students explored various forms and styles of dance including (but not limited to): ballet, hip-hop, salsa, country line dancing, ballroom dancing, Party Dances and Miss Elizabeth’s favorite – Disco!  Here is some video from their exploration of the art of dance!  Please note:  ALL students participated in the Dancing fun this week Despite maybe not being featured in this post! 🙂




In addition to dancing, the students completed the final week of the Greetings Unit in Spanish class!  Stay tuned for more fun next week as the students begin a new unit – Los Numeros (Numbers).  Well, that is all for “Letter D is for Dancing Week”.  What a Dazzling week it was!  As always, thank you for reading and have a fun and safe weekend!
