Dear Pre-K Parents,
We are 'UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!' This week, we begin our new theme, Construction Zone. During this theme, we will be doing show and tell. The show and tell item will be "something I have made." This is a fun time. Please be creative, as this is a fun project your child can do on their own or together with family. Show and tell is a great opportunity for your child to speak in front the class. I will send out a calendar this week with a schedule for each student to bring in their show and tell. They will begin next week, beginning on March 16th. Also, during this theme, for a Lenten activity, we will be making a wooden cross. The children will get to learn about construction safety and will hammer a nail to connect it. We will then paint them and have them blessed at the next school mass.
We will continue to learn about Lent and the Stations of the Cross.
This week, we will be working on letters Kk and Hh as well as triangles and diamond shapes. In our social emotional curriculum, we will be learning how to invite others to play.
If you have not signed up for a parent teacher conference, and you would like to, please see the sheet posted in the classroom.
Please know that we are doing our best to wipe things down and keep things clean in the classroom. We are following recommendations and encouraging the children to wash their hands with soap causing friction while they sing the Happy Birthday song or the ABC song. A mother in the medical field suggest to us that the children take off school clothes upon entry of your home and shower to reduce germs from entering your home. Please make arrangements to keep children at home if they are sick or coughing.
If you have any questions. please contact me.
