Week of Apr. 2-6

Dear Prek Parents,
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter Break. We will be waiting for you on Tuesday, April 3rd.

- 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 Uu. The vocabulary words for this letter are: under, umbrella, up, upset, upside down, underwear, udder, uncle, umpire

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 Sofia P. (Prek”A”) and Zach(Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share eatable things for 22 friends such as letter u cookies, umbrella cookies, etc. 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.

We are attaching links of some of Letter U videos if you would like to listen and sing at home with your kid:

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:
Ten Apples Up on Top, by Dr. Seuss, This delightful book forms part of the second stage in HarperCollins’ major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of 10 more titles in August 2003, such all-time favourites as How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? and Dr. Seuss’ Sleep Book boast bright new covers that incorporate much needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. Ten Apples Up on Top belongs to the Green Back Book range.

In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with numbers 0-13 on how to represent and identify using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, and name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.
