Dear Pre-K Families,
We are moving right along. We had a good week last week as we continued to learn rules, routines, and get acclimated to our new school year. We have been working on our fine motor journals and other pre-writing skills as well as how to properly hold our crayon. Last week I set up our class Seesaw. I am also teaching an online class so I assign activities for them daily. I have included our class if your child would like to participate. This is not mandatory, but may be fun and will compliment what we are doing in class. Please do not feel any pressure to complete activities.
This week, we continue with pre-writing skills and reinforcing how to hold a crayon. We will also begin building scissor skills by ripping paper. Ripping paper is the first step in learning to use scissors. It is a great way to build fine motor strength. We will continue to work on learning to recognize our name and the letters in it as we begin to cheer each student's name during our 'friend of the day' activity. I am also very excited to introduce the Bible this week. We will also begin learning about rhyming as we explore Humpty Dumpty. In our social emotional curriculum, we will learn about listening skills.
This week we are looking at excessive heat. It may permit us from getting in our outside playground time in as it may be too hot to take the children out.
Mrs. Mary sent out an email last week inviting you to participate in the Scholastic book order. This is a wonderful opportunity to add new books to your child's library. Each order will also benefit our preschool.
