Hello little families!

What a strange month we have had in April.  With only a handful of days that we went to school in April so there just wasn't too much to report.  I hope everyone enjoyed their spring break, and hopefully you got to enjoy a bit of family time on our snow days!  And Happy Easter!  

On the days we went to school, we have been working in our number of the day books.  We have been learning new nursery rhymes that we act out with our puppets.  We became engineers on our science day and built bridges and cities out of blocks and popsicle sticks.  When we are not busy working on worksheets we have been learning how to work as a team doing puzzles together, we have been learning about each other at circle time, and of course, we always finish our day on a high note with some fun songs and dancing!

We are in the last chunk of our pre k crazy to see the changes in all of you.  There has been some amazing progress in your printing, cutting, gluing, following directions, working together and learning to share.  I am just so proud of you guys....we have had an incredible journey thus far!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies!

Hello Prekindergarten families!

We have been busy with our letter of the day and number of the day worksheets.  we have been learning about a couple tricky shapes like the hexagon, octagon, and pentagon because the other shapes are too easy for us!  We have learned a new nursey rhyme for some, "Hey diddle diddle" and have been doing worksheets about the rhyme.  it has become one of their favorites as we have made little paper puppets to act out the nursery rhyme!  we have began to have science fridays!  our first experiment was finding out if something sinks or floats.  We first made predictions and then did our experiment and recorded all our results.  The kids were so involved and excited, we just gotta do this every Friday!

Days to remember:

March 18   in-service  No school
March 28- April 1   Spring break   No school

And it looks like warmer weather is on its way!
That's it for now!

     Hello families of Prekindergarten!                                                                                                        

  Welcome back!  I sure missed everyone over the holidays...and hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.  Back to school means back to work, and back to playing with our friends.  Since getting back we've started to go through our alphabet again with uppercase and lowercase.  We have gotten too good at the basic 5 shapes so have had to add pentagons, trapezoids, hexagons, and octagons to the mix!  Very impressive kiddos!  We continue to keep up with our scissor skills, gluing, and printing.  The past few classes we have been learning about arctic animals, how they stay warm, and what they eat. We have made some of these animals during our crafting time.....they are extra cute!

Stay Warm ! ! !

Hello Prekindergarten Families!
We have entered into the month of December.  We had such a busy November.  We have continued to practice our letters with sounds, counting up to 20, and trying to recognize the numbers without being in order.  Days of the week, colors, and learning new shapes are a part of our learning each class day.  Since the weather has gotten colder and there is snow now, we have been talking about how to stay healthy and what keeps us warm.  We have also started to practice putting on our own ski pants, and boots, and trying to zip up our own coats!

December 1st we sang our hearts out for the taping of our Christmas song for the St. Gerard Christmas concert.  It will be available on Youtube December 16.  There will be a link for our families to view all the wonderful performances.  I am so proud of our class.  I can't wait for it to be viewed!  The kids have shown such an excitement for Advent and Christmas.  We have been singing Christmas carols while crafting, and truly getting into the true Christmas spirit.

To make sure everything is fresh and clean in January I will be sending their work home from the past few months.  Some of it may be unfinished, or not completed because of days missed, so not to worry.  The kiddies can do them on their holidays if they get bored!  😄

Stay safe and warm!  I will post once more before the last day of school!

Blessings to you all and may your hearts be filled with joy, happiness, and cheer during this exciting month!

Hello Pre-K families,

We have been in school for a couple months now and have made some great progress!  Not only have we been learning the alphabet, but the sounds too.  We have a great knowledge of shapes and colors, and we have been counting up to 20!  We have been practicing our name recognition and learning how to print our own names!  There's been lots of crafting at school and I will be sending their Halloween crafts home this week.

There are some important dates to remember this month:
  • no school November 5
  • no school November 19
Pre-Kindergarten picture day is on November 12    

In the upcoming weeks we will be preparing for Christmas concert!

Have a wonderful month parents!

Welcome Pre-K families!

We have made it through our first month of school!  I am so proud of our little class.  Everyone is showing such enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn.  We've been going over rules of the classroom and how to be good friends to each other.  We are learning how to be good listeners, how to be safe, how to follow directions, and learning each others names!

We have been working hard right from the get go!  Each day we go over letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and days of the week.  Ask your child to recite our days of the week song...they start the song for me now because they love it so much!  We've been developing our scissor skills, practicing holding our pencil, and learning how to use glue sticks.  It's unbelievable how well they can follow directions when it comes to our work and doing crafts.  We also started doing name recognition and practiced printing our names.

Seeing how this first month has gone, I know we are gonna have a great school year!  

Thanksgiving is October 11th this year.  I am so thankful to be your teacher and feel I am truly blessed to be here.  We will be doing some Thanksgiving crafts, and discussing the holiday in class this month.
