Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break and enjoyed a bit of time off!  Well we are in the final stretch of pre-k where we are working hard to make sure we are ready for Kindergarten this fall.  

I am proud to say we have been printing our own names, we are cutting and doing worksheets independently, and we have been trying some more challenging worksheets to become more confident with our numbers, letters, and shapes, and colors.

Crafting time has been putting together our "April Showers bring May Flowers" project board.  We have been talking a bit about Spring weather and the new beginnings of baby animals, grass, leaves, flowers...and of course how the snow is finally going!

We have some fun topics coming up like farm animals and wild animals...what are the differences and similarities?  So lots of fun to still be had!  And just a reminder bingo is coming up on the 26th of April....and book fair begins the week of the 15th.  I will be taking pre-k for a peek at the book fair and writing down some of their favorites.

With the warmer weather here now we will hopefully get a chance to enjoy some of it and get to play on the play structure at the end of each of our days!

Until next month!

Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day!

We are back at it in pre-k....we went full force into letters, colors, shapes, and also are learning about some Arctic animals.  We have went over what keeps us warm.  We have enjoyed making our own musical instruments.  And, we have learning about how to be a good friend.  We have reached a point where we can say our alphabet confidently, numbers up to 10, we have started adding some new shapes to our learning, and I am so proud of the girls!!!!!  We have been doing lots of practicing and can now even print our own tracing!  I am so excited to see what progress these girls make in the upcoming months!

Hello families!

This will be the last time this year I will be talking to you this year!  And then bring on the new year!  This month has been so busy with practicing for the concert, making Christmas crafts, and making gifts for the families.  We will be preforming with the kindergarten class on Tues night.  I am so proud of these kiddos.  Over the past month we have also been doing the work; counting up to 20, letter recognition, new shapes, and practicing printing our names.

Our last day is the 22nd, it will be an earlier dismissal at 2:25!  I hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas with lots of laughs and filled with love, enjoying the extra time with family and friends.  I will see you all in the new year!  Check the school website for dates coming up, or call me at St. Gerard School.

Happiest of holidays!

Hello Pre-k families,

Welcome to the pre-K blog...this is where I will post every month to update you on what we are doing in class.  We have been extremely busy with the different holidays that have passed.  We do artwork for each holiday and talk a little bit about what each one means.

We have Christmas concert coming up and have been practicing a song for it that we will be performing with the kindergarten class.  We have pictures coming this Friday the 17th, so come in your Sunday best!  This Friday is also our movie evening...hope to see you there!

Talk to you next month!

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 ! ! !

 February Reminder:
