Pre-K 3.5-4 Year Olds with Mrs. Donavan
We are up for another busy week! We will keep working as a class; classroom rules, Social and Emotional, our first letter in our names, going over how we go to church and the importance of a bible. I will also be introducing Handwriting Without Tears, this is an appropriate approach to teach pencil grip, letter formation, and the literacy skills that are needed for print eventually.
Social and Emotional: Listening
Listening Rules: Eyes are Watching, Ears are Listening, Voices Quiet and Body Calm
Shape(s): Square, Heart
Letter(s): First letter in each name
Handwriting Without Tears: The Ant, The bug and The Bee
Prayer: Guardian Angel
Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
To whom God's love
commits me here,
Ever this day,
be at my side,
To light and guard,
Rule and guide.
8/26/20: August Birthday Celebrations
The children are acclimating to the classroom extremely well. They are getting our routine down, they are understanding the classroom rules and honestly such a fun group! I am so grateful for this group and for our OLM families! Thank you for the constant classroom supplies and snack sign ups! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
A couple items are coming up: In about two weeks you will receive a packet; Ages and Stages Questionnaires. One questionnaire is for your child’s overall development and the other concentrates on social/emotional development. This is an easy assessment that you do at home with your child. Please bring back both questionnaires after it's been completed and I will score them and send out the results.
You all should have received an email for Scholastic Book Club. With every order our classroom also receives a free book, it's a win win situation! If you did not receive this email and would like information please do not hesitate, let myself or Mary know right away.
Last but not least; I had mentioned in our very first zoom meeting that I will be setting up our Seesaw virtual classroom. I am extremely excited to bring this back, this is great way to be able to connect your child inside the classroom. I will be able to post photos/videos of each child privately as well as showing what work your child is working on. You should have all received an email this weekend for an invite with all individual codes. Seesaw can be downloaded on any electronic device even on your cell phone. It's such an easy and convenient resource to stay connected. Again, please contact me if you are need of any assistance.
Blessing to all,
