Dear Prek Parents,
Thank you for helping your child with their 100th day hat, shirts and dresses. Your creativity was awesome and children has an awesome time.
This week we will not be studying any letter just reviewing ABC’s. We will have a focus with the our social studies unit. We will continue our amazing the unit about Community Helpers. We are going to be discussing the different types of professions. Children will get the chance to name the tools, transportations and what does each of the professions do. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: hair stylist, firefighter, policeman, doctor, vet, nurse, builder, chef, farmer, teacher, mailman, dentist. If you have any books or posters, or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated. Children can bring any of these transportation and community helper’s objects they have at home to share and play we will send them two weeks.
The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.
We will be having expositions from a vet, a dentist, firefighter, police and doctor (the last 3 are coming with their corresponding transportation.) SO EXCITING!!!!

To close our Community Helpers unit we are planning on a Show and Tell Presentation that will be on Friday, February 3rd. Each child will be assigned with an occupation, they will have to answer the following questions. "What do I do?" "How do I transport?" "What tools do I use?" "Where do I work?" Children should come dressed as the community helper that they will be assigned. We are NOT demanding an expensive or fancy suit, it is up to you how and what you are going to use. Children should also bring a poster illustrating the questions, this will be a help while they present.
Enjoy doing this project with your child. Involve them in everything you plan. Any doubts or questions please contact us as soon as possible.
For Friday, Feb. 3rd we will also have a Community Helpers Transportation day. We will pretend play and we would like to borrow ONE toy car you have at HOME. We are NOT REQUESTING YOU TO BUY.
