Dear Pre K families,
This week we will conclude our last week of our 'Animals Everywhere' theme. This week we will be concentrating on animal babies. We will also talk about sorting and classifying animals and other objects. Our alpha friend will be Zelda Zebra Zz. On Tuesday, we will celebrate Valentine's Day with a special snack. Thank you to all who have signed up to provide items towards it. Please remember that if your child wishes to share valentines with their friends, please have them only write their name in the from: section, and leave the to: section blank. This is great name writing practice. On Wednesday, we will celebrate February Birthdays.
At the end of the week, please take home your child's supply box. We would appreciate if over the vacation break you could please check over their supplies as many of them are running low. Please remember that all their supplies should fit easily in their box. Some boxes are a bit small and it makes it difficult for them to get to the table with all their supplies intact. Friday will be that last day before our week off. There will not be classes the entire week of February 20th.
When we come back to school on February 20th, we will begin our Construction zone theme. We will be doing show and tell and I will post a show and tell calendar when we get back. The show and tell theme will be 'Something you make'. This could be a project, a craft, a picture or anything you can think of as long as it is made by your child. This is a fun project to get creative and share some time together with your student. (Parental help is ok)
Also when we return, we will be starting the season of Lent. Lent will begin on Ash Wednesday. We will be attending Ash Wednesday mass in the school auditorium at 8:15 on March 1st.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Dear Pre K Families,
The Auction is now behind us. We would like to thank Mrs. Gibson, Tanner and Tyler's mom for getting our class project together. It was nice to see some of you at the event. It was really a fun evening and Mrs. Blackburn made our playground project the 'Fund of Need'. We were able to raise quite a bit of money to put towards our playground renovation. Thank you to all who donated.
We are into our theme 'Animals Everywhere' Last week our Alpha Friend was Fifi Fish Ff. We talked a lot about different kind's of animal and animals that were pets. In large group, we wrote the word 'Fish' and made a fish bowl. We also did a direct draw of a cat, wrote the word 'cat', and gave our cat's a name. Our Dramatic Play area is now a 'Pet Clinic.' We have many pets on display with print so that the children can write pet words. They have also been learning about how to take care of pets. Friday finished out with Catholic Schools week. We are so lucky to be a Catholic School.
This week, our Alpha friend will be Andy Apple Aa. We will talk about zoo animals and get prepared for Valentine's Day. We will be making Valentine treat bags. If your child would like to bring in valentines for the class, we currently have 30 children in our class. Please have your child write their name in the From: section and leave the To: section blank. Have them write a few valentines per day as this is really good practice for name writing. We will celebrate Valentines day on Tuesday, February 14th with a special snack. The Valentine list will be posted on Monday Morning. All are invited to attend. If you are interested in helping in the classroom that day, please contact me.
On Wednesday, February 15th, we will celebrate our February birthdays. A birthday wish list will be posted on Monday as well.
This week on Wednesday, February 8th, we will have International Night in the school auditorium. This event will start at 6:00pm and end at 7:30. The preschool will present the country of Madagascar. This is a fun event and each class puts together a display from a different country and provides a food sample to share. The event is free and we hope to see you all there.
Please remember to check the classroom board to sign up for snack. On most days, please plan to provide snack for 24 children. On Wednesday, please plan to provide snack for 25 children. On special party days, please plan for 30.
Looking ahead, the entire school will close the week of February 20th. Classes will resume on Monday, February 27th.
