Dear Pre-K Parents,
We are in the final week of our theme My Family. This week we conclude with All Kinds of Families. We will also continue to talk about healthy foods and eating everyday foods vs sometimes foods. We will also be doing apple tasting, exploring apples and learning about My Five Senses. We will continue clapping syllables and our nursery rhyme, Hickory Dickory Dock. In handwriting, we continue with pre-writing skills as we make diagonal lines. In science, we will explore how we sort objects. In our social emotional curriculum, we are exploring feelings. We have made some changes inside the classroom as our dramatic play center has transformed into an apple orchard.
As we prepare to learn about St. Francis next week, we would like to make a poster of our family pets. Please send in a photo of your pet so we can add it to our pet poster.
In preparation for progress reports next month, I would like to remind you to please complete your ASQ questionnaire that was in the blue folder.
We will continue to pray for firefighters and those that have been affected by the fires. We will also continue to pray for Mrs. Blackburn and Mrs. Mary, as well as all the teachers and students on the other side of the school as they welcome back students in kindergarten through 6th grade. We wish them an easy transition back to class. I know that many of our students have older siblings that are coming back. Please be conscientious of the 2:30 pick up time as I teach an online zoom class after that pick-up time, so it may be necessary to pick up your preschool child first so that you are prepared to pick up students from the other side at 2:30. I am not exactly sure how pick up is going to work on the other side, but I think it is only a drive thru pick up.
We will celebrate our three September birthdays on Wednesday, September 30th. If your child has a September birthday and you would like to bring something, I will have a birthday sign up out on the table.
