Language and Literacy with Ice Castle

Sunday, January 3, 2021

This last week we did so many fun Learning Activities with Experience Early Learning Curriculum . Our Theme this month is Ice Castle and today I am sharing some of the Activities we did. 
I am so thankful for the opportunity to use  Experience Early Learning Curriculum with my students and to share our experiences on my blog. 
In exchange for my unbiased and honest reviews Experience Early Learning has provided me with the curriculum free of charge.
I have used Experience Early Learning Curriculum in my Classroom since 2017. This Curriculum has been a True Blessing for me and my students! ❤️
Language and Literary 
Today I am sharing just some of the Early Language & Literary Activities included in the Ice Castle Theme . There are so many I can’t include them all. Other Activities in The Ice Castle Theme are included through Art, Games, Circle Time Activities and so much more.

Pictured Below is the Storybook  and Story Pieces Included with the Ice Castle Theme Curriculum. The Title is :
 Penry’s Great Adventure 
My granddaughter Ariana read it to us and used the story pieces. It is such a cute story about a Penguin and His Friends. In the classroom I use the monthly storybook and story pieces during story time. After sharing with the children I place them In the Library Center for the children to use and retell the story.
Monthly Storybook & Story Pieces 

  A wonderful resource for Early Writing is My Little Journal .  In this journal there are journaling ideas for at home or school. It includes Letter and Number tracing for the month.The color and shape. A front and back cover activity & name practice. 
In the classroom we do this as a class and if we do not finish I place them in the writing center for the children to finish during Learning Center Time.

The Focus Letters for the Theme Ice Castle 

I Can Read 
Sight Word Reader

Can You Come In?

Each month we receive a new sight word book. The book focuses on three new sight words. We read the book together and the children follow along pointing to the words.

I leave the Pointers out and we focus on the sight words during the month. 

This Month’s sight words are you, come and in.

Excited About 😆 Early Language & Literary 
More Resources We Will Be Using:

Encouraging Writing ✍️ Writing Their Names , Letters and 
Writing New Words
The children love writing on special paper. I want to encourage them to write their name. I also want to encourage them to try to write letters or words they have never tried to write. They love the special post cards that we receive with the curriculum.


Rhyming Trucks
Table Top Literacy

With this game the children match the rhyming cabs and trailers.
This game teaches Phonological Awareness.
We will enjoy this game in Circle Time and then I will set it up at the table for the children to enjoy.

Word Puzzles 
This activity teaches letter sounds , letter recognition and early reading. These are Awesome! Such a great Activity and Resource !

Here is one last resource I am sharing for now. These are actually part of a game. I really want my children to get the full benefit from these picture word cards so I am placing them in a pocket chart inside my Library Center. This is so my children can look at and discover the pictures and words before we play the game.
If they choose they can take the words to the writing center as well and write them.

Thank you for visiting my Pre-K Blog. I hope you have a wonderful week as you head back to school!
