Best Day in Pre-K EVER!

OK... so seriously, I just had the best day ever! My kids were AH-MAY-ZING! I kept looking for the UFO that came in to bring me these strange creatures.  They were all super quiet and super busy and super productive, and super cooperative, and, and, and..... the list goes on.  And on and on and on.  HA HA.  OK I'll stop, you get the idea.  We have really been working on learning the letters in our names.  As of now, I would say about half can spell their names without looking at it.  The other half still needs help, but we will get there.  Here's a couple more things we have been up to lately.

My friends and I are using bears to practice counting, sorting, and making patterns.  They love playing with these little guys.

I've also been drilling those letters in to them.  For the ones that do not know their names yet, I am focusing on those letters. But for the ones who know how to spell their names, we are moving on to the rest of the alphabet.  I am using these super cute alphabet cards from A Differentiated Kindergarten.
And guess what?! I have about 3 kids who know ALL of their letters already! I can't believe it!

OH! I almost forgot.  I got this great idea today! You may already do this but it was a first for me.  I'm always being silly and trying to find new ways for the kids to remember stuff so today when we were going over the month it hit me.  We did a cheer!

Give me an S- S!
Give me an E-E!
Give me a P-P!
Give me a T-T!
Give me an E-E!
Give me an M-M!
Give me a B-B!
Give me a E-E!
Give me an R-R!
What's it spell? SEPTEMBER!
Say it again. SEPTEMBER!
What month are we in? SEPTEMBER!

I don't know who loved it more, me or the kids.
