Dear Prek Parents,
We hope you had a fabulous long weekend. Welcome Back!
- Every Tuesday Homework is sent home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back
- On Tuesdays with the homework we will send a bag in which you will have to bring something to school that begins with the letter of the week. This is to help us with our letter of the week manipulative center.
- On Wednesday Sept. 14th you received the Progress Reports. Please sign and return. Any questions, comments or doubts we are at your orders.
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday children have Motricity class. We are requesting that please send your child with tennis shoes and with shorts or pants. No skirts, dresses and no sandals. This is so that your child can be able to participate in every activity done during the class
This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. This week we will be studying about the letter Ee. The vocabulary for this letter is: elephant, envelope, elbow, elf, excavator, egg, excited, empty, eight, exit
Children assigned should take from three (3) to five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Lianna Nuñez (Prek”A”) and Diego Rivera (Prek”B”).
Note 1: If you would like to share eatable things such as enchiladas, elephant shaped cookies, etc. for children to taste. It would be awesome if instead of Monday you send it on Friday so that we close up our letter unit.
Note 2: There will always be one student of each section that will be assigned with the letter of the week but, there is a new homework. Every Tuesday some of you will receive a Ziploc bag and you will have to send one thing that fits in the bag that begins with the letter of the week.
Thank you for your support!!
The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.
Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Elmer by David McKee is a super colorful book about an elephant named Elmer who is very different from the rest of his herd. Because he’s different, he decides to run away and “paint” himself gray to look like the others. He returns to find that his herd loves him just the way he is. If your kids like Elmer, they will be pleased to see that McKee has written quite a collection of Elmer books.
Elephants Cannot Dance by Mo Willems is just ONE of his many Elephant and Piggie books. My preschooler are addicted to these books. This one features elephant, as he is trying to learn to dance. I love how Mo Willem’s books always have a fun twist at the end!
In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-6.
Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”
We are attaching you the link of the videos of this song we will be learning throughout the week. We will learn two versions of this nursery rhyme. Just a little tip to have fun at home listening and acting out our song.
In our first Science unit we will be talking about PARTS OF THE BODY. We will begin with this unit this week. Some of the vocabulary words we will be learning this week are: head, mouth, eyes, ears, nose, toes, fingers, arm, elbow, and hands. If you have any poster or any other material that you are willing to share with the class, we would appreciate if you will let us borrow them from you.
