Before we get down to business today, I have two sad little words for you . . . I’m sick. Yup, in 8 short days in the classroom, my sweet crew of kiddos not only shared their cuteness with me, but they also shared their germs. BOO! Isn’t it usually at least week 4 before ya go down for the first time?? Oh well, I have a Z-Pack now and life will be all good in about a day 🙂
Now that I got my whining out of the way, it’s on to a little ABC fun. At the beginning of first grade, we always spend a little time practicing those ABCs. (Rightfully so this year as I had a little sweetie come up and ask me how to write an “EL-M-EN-O” . . . it was everything I could do not to crack up.) If you follow me, you know that I am all about creating new “hooks” to teach a concept or standard. So, we worked on practicing the alphabet . . . alien-style.
Have you all heard of the song Alien Alphabet by Ron Brown’s Intelli-Tunes? Each and every year it becomes a class favorite. Why, you ask?? Well, the kids get to sing the ABCs in their best alien voices and move around like outta this world creatures. The giggles take over the room and everyone buys-in immediately! Just take a little listen . . .
