Week of Feb. 12-16


Dear Prek Parents,
Thank you so much for your support on the 100th day of School. Kids had an amazing time!! Nothing would’ve been done without your help!

Reminders:
- Every Tuesday Homework is send home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back
-On Tuesday we send a Ziploc Bag home in the folder, so that you can send things that begin with the letter of the week.
-Please make sure your child is only bringing toys of the letter of the week we are studying. We have been receiving children with toys that do not belong to the letter.

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 Qq. The vocabulary for this letter is: question mark, queen, quail, quarter, q-tips, quiet, quack, quick, quilt

Children assigned should take at least 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 Jairo (Prek”A”) and Mia (Prek”B”).
***Note: On FRIDAY, the assigned students, will have to share eatable things for 22 friends such as quinoa, quesadilla, quiche, letter Q cookies for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit

The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose, by Lucille Colandro Our favorite lady is back and hungry for Valentine's Day treats! That lovely old lady has returned just in time for Valentine's Day. Now she's swallowing items to make a very special gift for her valentine! With rhyming text and hilarious illustrations, this wacky version of the classic song will appeal to young readers as they follow the Old Lady on a wild Valentine's Day adventure.

Children will get the chance to name them and know how to be a good friend and learn the words to express their feelings.
