Hi OLM families, we are moving right along in our classroom rules inside the class as well as our outside rules. The children are doing very well transitioning smoothly this week. We will be working on the color yellow and the shape triangle. Find anything in your home with the color yellow and the shape triangle. We will be asking the children to share with their friends at school, what did they find with the color yellow and what shape with triangle. We will continue with our listening song on our rules; eyes are watching, ears are listening, voice quiet and body calm. How we use our words to communicate what they need! We will continue with our prayer Guardian Angel. On Wednesday we will have our librarian Mrs. Poole join us for reading time in the class. We do not have any August birthday celebrations but we thought it would be nice to celebrate the ending of August. There is a sign up sheet on the table, please take time to look it over and sign up for our August Celebration.

HI OLM parents, first week of preschool was a hit! The children learned so much the first week with our class rules, outside rules and learning our class routine and with our Social and Emotional. We are really focused on "eyes are watching, ears are listening, voice are quiet and body calm. Our fine motor journals the children had lots of fun writing in their journals. Mrs. Gaby and I wanted to send out a friendly thought; it is very normal for children to have separation anxiety when getting dropped off in the morning. The best thing you can do is reassure your child that mommy and daddy always comes back, give your a big hug and kiss and let your child know you will be back soon and will see them very soon! We do know it's very hard to leave when your child is crying but please be assured. We have a quiet area for the children when they are needing that extra time and space. We are always reminding them that mommy and daddy always comes back to pick them up. It's usually a quick process and the children bounce right away into routine. Thank you OLM families for all the school supplies for the children's personal boxes. Thank you for signing up for our class snacks. Thank you for your patience with playground, we will be signing in with the teacher's Ipad to sign in and out and we need a full signature for each time you sign in your child and out your child. We will like to add this week we be sending a hand out with instructions regarding the family class book we want to make. Please don't hesitate if you have questions or concerns.
Many blessings to you all
Mrs. Irma and Mrs. Gaby

Hi my OLM families, I can't believe this is our last week of school it went by so fast, I am so thankful for you choosing OLM preschool to be your child's first year of introduction of preschool. I am very proud of each one of my students. We have learned a lot this year, we know that with our faith of God protection over us we can do all things in Christ. My little's have learned a lot; sitting down and staying focused in group time, raising their hands and waiting patiently for their names to be called, learning our Prayers, learning all about Social and Emotional. How we can use our words to communicate in our class, learning how to focus on the listening rules "eyes are watching, ears are listening, voices quiet, body calm". We have been doing a lot of exploring our shapes and colors in the classroom and outside play as well, we have been also reviewing our finger plays! Our Big World curriculum with Clifford; a lot of learning going on, ask your child how do you know it's a fish? Fish swim in the water 2 fishes have fins 3 fishes have a back bone 4 fishes have gills to breathe under water. My children have learned a lot about fishes. This week our prayer is the Guardian Angel. We will continue to talk about the rosary. Birthday celebration for June is this week. We will be reading our favorite books "Rainbow fish" "The very Inpatient Caterpillar" "Sneezy the Snowman" "The Hula-Hoopin Queen" "Carly Sandwhich" "Chicks and Salsa" and "Charlie the Caterpillar". We are going to have fun with our stories this week. Our last day of preschool is May 27th and no school Friday May 28th. Our preschool summer program starts on June 1st. I would like to thank you so much for blessing me with your precious children, they are a blessing to me. God blessings be with you all my OLM families.
With lots of love,
