Week of Aug. 22-26

Dear Prek Parents,

This week we are going to start working with the alphabet. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, we will also focus on the letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. We will begin studying about the letter Bb. The vocabulary for this letter is: bat, bird, butterfly, bottle, book, bat, bee, bear, balloon, bed, boy, ball.

As explained in our Open House two children will be assigned each week with each letter. In this case, the children assigned should take from three (3) to 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 Daniel R. (Prek”A”) and Bella M. (Prek”B”).

Note: If you would like to share eatable things such as bananas, berries, bacon, beans for children to taste. It would be awesome if instead of Monday you send it on Friday so that we close up our letter unit.

Thank you for your support!!

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

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a children's picture book published in 1967. Written and illustrated by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle, the book is designed to help toddlers associate colors and meanings to objects

Brontorina, by James Howe
Poor Brontorina!  How will she be able to achieve her dream of being a ballerina when she’s too big for the studio?  Thankfully, her teacher realizes that it’s not that Brontorina is too big.  It’s that the studio is too small!  This is a fun story which also teaches a good lesson: find a way to include everyone, even those that are a little different.

In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-5.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “We are Going on a Bear Hunt”
We are attaching you the link of the videos of this song we will be learning throughout the week. We will learn two versions of this nursery rhyme. Just a little tip to have fun at home listening and acting out our song.

In our Social Studies unit we will be talking about MY FAMILY. We will begin with this unit this week. Some of the vocabulary words we will be introducing in this unit are: mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, sister, brother, baby, uncle, aunt,
For this unit we are also requesting a family picture that will be displayed in the classroom throughout our family study.

On Friday, September 2nd we will have a “Show&Tell About My Family” for this little project we need your help. Children will have to bring a poster with family pictures and they should be able to describe their family members and talk about it in front of their classmates. You may practice at home. Be as creative as possible. This will be presented during working stations. Thank you for your support. Any questions be free to contact us.
