Dear Pre-K Families,
We have continued to learn about the four seasons. We have been having a great time in the classroom. We have explored many winter centers and explored ice and snow during our fun Friday science experiments. We also had a lot of fun in our beach themed dramatic play area. We have explored how some animals hibernate and even made a 'bear cave' on Friday.
Small groups are going very well and this past week we focused on recognizing the letter Qq.
In our social emotional curriculum, we have learned the 'calm down' rules. When we have a strong feeling, we put our hands on our tummy and say, "stop!" We identify our feeling and take belly breaths to calm down.
We would like to thank our room parent, Mrs. Laura for putting together our class auction item. She worked with the kids to make a beautiful cross. It was fun to see some of you at the event. It was a really fun evening.
This week, we celebrate Catholic Schools week. We are very thankful that we are able to teach in a Catholic environment. We would also like to thank you for choosing a Catholic education for your children. Monday morning, we will watch a short movie in the auditorium with our 5th grade reading buddies. On Friday, the school Mass will take place at St. Patrick's church. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to attend.
This week, we will finish up with our seasons theme and do some story extension activities with some fun books about clouds.
