We have been so impressed with our pre-k class. They are doing a great job with visually discriminating letters and numbers. Their matching skills have been fabulous.
Literacy: We read the books “Ho for a Hat” by William Jay Smith and “Fall is Not Easy” by Marty Kelley. Miss Anna read us the book “Put Me in the Zoo” by Dr Seuss, which the children loved.
Nursery Rhymes: During circle we are reviewing our Nursery Rhymes. This helps with early reading skills in children. Try saying a nursery rhyme every night with your child and see how many you remember.
Letter Recognition: We are working a lot with letter recognition. We have done many matching games, learning that letters have straight and curved lines, and there is a difference between upper and lowercase letters. This is something that we will be working on all year long.
Math: We did 1-1 correspondence this week. We also did our number 5 page, for our number book. Miss Anna did a math game with the children, where they had to roll a die and then put that number of pom-poms on the leopard.
Sensory Table: We had rice and fall items in our sensory table.
Art: The children loved creating leaves, by melting crayons on a leaf. We placed a leaf cutout on a candle warmer and then used crayons to draw on the leaf. Science and art together, so fun! These went home in their back pack today.
Field Trip: Our next field trip will be on Wednesday, October 11 to Quarrybrook science center. Please drop off your child at 9:00 and pick them up at 11:00.
Reminder: We have no school on Friday, October 6, due to a teacher workshop day. There is no school on Monday, October 9, due to Columbus Day.
