Dear Pre- k Families,
This week, we begin theme. Our first theme is 'My Family'; we will explore Who is in my family?. We will continue with this theme for the next 4 weeks, focusing on different aspects of the family. If you would like to send in a picture of your family, we would love to have your child talk about it. Thank you for sending in the all about me page for our class book. We will have each child come up and talk about themselves to the class. We will continue learning about lines for pre-writing and learning about shapes. We will also begin to learn about clapping syllables in our names. In our social emotional curriculum, we will be learning about self talk.
We will be celebrating Mother Mary's birthday on Sept 6th and will be learning about how special she is to us.
Thank you to those who sent in Clorox wipes last week. We really appreciate your support. I have been posting pictures and video on Seesaw from the classroom. I hope you have been enjoying them. We walked down to Mrs. Blackburn's office and made her some chalk drawings. She was really happy to see us, and we had fun. I am also teaching an online class to students at home. I post daily assignments for them on Seesaw and have included our class. Please do not feel pressure to get them completed. It is only something to do if you are interested. They do support the things that I am teaching in the class. I sent home a list of suggestions to help support your child's fine motor skills. It is very important for them to strengthen their fingers to help them with writing.
We will continue with friend of the day. We are focusing on cheering each child's name and then writing the letters in their name. This is a great way to learn proper letter formation.
If you were interested in purchasing books from Mrs. Mary's Scholastic book order, they are due by September 4th. Please share it with others that may wish to purchase books. Scholastic provides our program with free books for every order. It went out to each family from Mrs. Mary of August 14th. We thank you in advance for your support.
Also due on the 4th is the ASQ questionnaire. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me at pick up/drop off or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Preschool will be closed on Monday September 7th to observe the Labor Day holiday. We will resume classes on Tuesday September 8th.
