Dear Preschool Parents,
The HOLIDAY SEASON is already upon us! It is so hard to believe that we are 3 months into the school year. The children have all adjusted so well. They are settled for the most part, and are very familiar with our daily routines. We are all having a great time while learning the skills needed for pre-k.
There will be a lot of excitement going on in the next few weeks as we prepare for Jesus’ birthday. The children will learn about what we need to do to prepare for this speacial day. We will also be talking about the miracles of Jesus, in preparation for Catholic Schools Week in January.
For the next few weeks our curriculum will focus on the following: We will continue to introduce numbers up to 10 and review the ones we have already learned. With the Advent and Christmas season upon us we will introduce the colors purple, pink, green and review red. We will focus on the letter C, W and B. The children will be able to recognize the shapes, triangle and star, when we talk about the meaning of the Christmas tree and star.
There are many more things that we will be learning and a lot of hands on fun! Children are becoming better listeners and learning how to socialize with their peers. That is a very important skill in preschool. We are a family in our classroom and I feel the children get that sense also. Just last week, they met with their 4th grade buddies and they shared in an activity and had cookies and milk. They had a blast!
Thank you for all your support. If you ever have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
It has been a wonderful school year! Pre-k has learned so many things and has made some wonderful memories. Our Stepping Up Ceremony was a success. The children did a great job singing and telling us what they want to be when they grow up. Congratulations to our new kindergarten class of 2017! Enjoy your summer and I look forward to seeing you in September!
We had a great day in Pre-K today celebrating our wonderful mothers with Muffins with Moms!
Wishing our beautiful moms a very Happy Mother’s Day!
Prek-1 is starting of the Spring season enjoying fun filled activities. We celebrated Easter by coloring Easter eggs and doing some fun bunny dances. The children also had a fun filled Dr. Seuss week. We celebrated by having crazy hat day, wearing our clothes inside out or backwards and we even swapped teachers for a fun lesson. The students also celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by trying to catch that tricky leprechaun. We never caught him but he left us some treats and a letter.
The students are currently celebrating the season of Spring by learning the life cycle of a butterfly. We are watching our caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies. They are in the chrysalis stage right now. When they become butterflies we will be releasing them into nature. The students are so excited about seeing the cycle occurring right before their eyes.
In Math ,we are learning how to add. We use manipulatives to master our knowledge of addition. In Language Arts we are continuing to learn letter sounds and sight words. The students are using these skills to begin to read. I am so proud of all their hard work!
WINTER FUN IN PREK1
Winter break is over and the children are getting ready to begin the final trimester of the school year. We will be celebrating our hundred days of school in just a few days. The time has went by so quickly. Pre-k1 has learned many things throughout these winter months. We have used the characteristics of winter to help us learn about math, reading, science and social studies.
The new school year has begun! The Pre-k is off to a wonderful start. We began our first full week learning about each other and our school. I look forward to the weeks ahead! The students will be learning about the season of Fall. We will be using the season’s features to help us learn about numbers, letters, colors and shapes. I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!
The 2014-2015 school year is over. It has been a wonderful year! The children have grown both academically and socially. I am very proud of their achievements throughout the school year. They will do well as kindergarten students! Enjoy your summer! I can’t wait to see you in September!!
END OF THE YEAR PICTURES
Happy New Year! Christmas has come and gone and a new year is upon us. Thank you for all your generosity during the holiday season.
In the weeks to come the children will be learning about the winter season. We will be learning about animals that hibernate during the winter and arctic animals who are awake during the season. While learning about the winter season we will continue to learn about the letters of the alphabet. We will read stories about winter and continue to strengthen our comprehension skills through different activities.
In the area of mathematics, the students will be focusing on counting to twenty, patterns and sorting. All of these standards will be studied through the theme of winter.
In religion the students will be focusing on “Mary as Our Special Mother.” The students will come to understand that Mary is a special person in their life. They will appreciate Mary as an important mother figure. The students will then use all the knowledge they gained to create a special project that will be presented during Catholic School’s Week.
I am looking forward to the upcoming weeks! We have many fun and interesting things to learn!
The Christmas Show is around the corner. I am so excited for the children! The pre-k costume requirements are as follows:
The children who have the part of trees should wear a long sleeved green t-shirt. Their pants should be brown. Please remember that the material of their clothing should be light. They can wear their school shoes or dark colored sneakers. The sneakers should not light up. Please do not worry about placing bows or headbands in the girls’ hair because the trees will be wearing hats.
The children who are boy customers should wear dress pant or jeans and a winter sweater. The girl customers should wear a skirt and a winter sweater. Both girl and boy customers should wear scarf and hat. They also should wear either their school shoes or sneakers that do not light up.
I am looking forward to a great show! I cannot wait to see all their hard work come together !
Welcome to PreK-1!
I’m looking forward to teaching you’re child this year!
The students are currently getting to know one another by creating and sharing class projects.
The class projects involve their name, home and family.
It’s nice to see the children recognizing each other’s special qualities.
These hands-on activities will help your child better understand and appreciate themselves and others.
