Week of Sept. 26-30

Dear Prek Parents,

  • ·         Every Tuesday Homework is send home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back
  • ·         Monday, Tueday, Wednesday and Thursdays children have Motricity class. We are requesting that please send your child with tennis shoes and with shorts or pants. No skirts and no sandals. This is so that your child can be able to participate in every activity done during the class.
  • ·         Please make sure your child is only bringing toys of the letter of the week we are studying. We have been receiving daily, children with toys that do not belong to the letter.

We will wrap-up September (Honduras’ Month) with an Early Childhood assembly. Prek is representing traditional dresses and traditional dances. This will take place at Discovery School campus on September 30th at 8:30am. Children have been practicing this dances and you are invited to this beautiful wrap-up.  
Prek-“A” will be dancing “El Suenito” (they will have to wear the Honduran traditional dress) and Prek “B” will be dancing Punta (they will have to wear garifuna clothing.)

Motricity: Ms. Andrea is requesting for you to recycle the empty milk cartons. Please bring as much as you can during the week. Thank you for your support.

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 Ff. The vocabulary for this letter is: fire, fan, fox, fish, fork, five, feather, frog, flower, finger, four

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 Jens Krauter (Prek”A”) and Elise Kaplan (Prek”B”).

Note 1: If you would like to share eatable things such as fettuccinni, 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: 
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss is a 1960 children's book by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel). A simple rhyming book for learner readers, it is a book with a freewheeling plot about a boy and a girl, and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish was part of the Beginner Book Video series which included Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! and The Foot Book.
The Rainbow Fish is an international bestseller and a modern classic. Eye-catching foilstamping, glittering on every page, offers instant child-appeal, but it is the universal message at the heart of this simple story about a beautiful fish, who learns to make friends by sharing his most prized possessions, that gives the book its lasting value.

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 and writing the number. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-7. We will be also be working with AB Patterns

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Five Green Spreckled Frogs”
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 Science unit we will be talking about PARTS OF THE BODY. We will continue 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.
