Dear Pre-k families,
This week we are in the 3rd week of our theme, My Community. We are learning about people we meet. We will be talking about community helpers that serve in our community like: police officers, firefighters, doctors, mail carriers, etc. We will be making thank you pictures to send out to our community to thank them. We will also be learning about fire safety, and learning how to stop, drop and roll. We will talk about calling 911 in an emergency and having a family plan and meeting place as well as knowing your home address. We will continue with learning letters and sounds of letters Kk - Nn. The children have been making silly hats each day and are really enjoying them. Our nursery rhyme this week is Jack Be Nimble. In our social emotional curriculum, we are learning about when people have the same or different feelings about something. In math, we will be learning about shorter/longer. We will continue learning about the rosary and the prayers of the rosary. This week we are focusing on the Hail Mary prayer.
Looking ahead to Halloween, we will celebrate with two special snack days. One will be on Thursday, 10/29 and the other will be on Friday, 10/30. I will post a snack sign up list for both days. Each child will make a small trick-or-treat bag and if you would like to send in a small store bought treat for them to share, that would be okay. Treats are optional. We have 11 students in our class and treats would need to be sent in the week of October 26th. All treats to be shared will need to be sent in by Thursday, 10/29 as some children do not attend on Friday. Please remember that costumes are not to be worn to preschool.
