-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 Ss. The vocabulary words for this letter are: scissors, snail, six, spider, snacke, socks, sun, submarine, seahorse, sandals, sandwich, seal
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 Mateo (Prek”A”) and Sophia D.(Prek”B”).
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 would like your support on occasionally review the ABC’s letter names and sound. Here are some songs we use in class every day.
Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Snow White's stepmother, the queen, is jealous of the girl's beauty and sends her way to the forest, where she is found by the seven dwarfs. Finally, the wicked queen puts the girl into an everlasting sleep. But Snow White is awakened by a kiss from a handsome prince and lives happily ever after.
In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with numbers 0-12 on how to represent and identify using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, and name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing. We will also be working with Graphing. Children will be able to represent a number of objects on a graph.
