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, Tuesday, 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.
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 Jj. The vocabulary for this letter is: jungle, juice, jar, jellybeans, jean, jump, jellyfish, jug, jacket, jet, jaguar, joey.
Children assigned should take 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 Simon (Prek”A”) and Mia (Prek”B”).
Note 1: If you would like to share eatable things such as juice, jello, jellybeans 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:
Jack and the Beanstalk by Steven Kellogg Join young Jack as he climbs a giant beanstalk to a magic castle in the clouds. Meet a hen that lays golden eggs and a harp that sings by itself. And don't forget the ogre. A classic fairy tale with a vigorous look that will leave you chanting "Fee-fi-fo-fum!"
Jamberry by Bruce Degen presents the fun adventure of a boy and a bear looking all kinds of berries for jam in silly, rhyming style. And the words seems to just roll off your tongue…and the tongues of your kids after they know it well
In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will continue working this week with numbers 0-10.
Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Jack and Jill”
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 Science we will continue our unit about Food. We are going to be discussing healthy and unhealthy snacks. Children will get the chance to name food that is eaten during the breakfast, lunch and dinner. Thy will also be able to name and identify the differences between a fruit and a vegetable. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: fruit, vegetables, sweets, meat, milk, If you have any books or posters, or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated.
