Week of April 16-20

Dear Prek Parents,
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 Ww. The vocabulary words for this letter are: walrus, whale, watermelon, wheel, water, window, wig, walk, wand, web, watch

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 Ariel (Prek”A”) and Wady(Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share eatable things for 23 friends such as watermelon, waffles, walnuts, white chocolate, wafer 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.
