Week of Sept. 5-9

Dear Prek Parents,
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 Dd. The vocabulary for this letter is: dog, doughnut, dolphin, dinosaur, door, doll, duck, drum, dress, dice, donkey

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 Gina Minou (Prek”A”) and Cormac (Prek”B”).

Note 1: If you would like to share eatable things such as carrot doughnut, dumplings etc. 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.

Note 2: There will always be one student of each section that will be assigned with the letter of the week but, there will be a new homework. Every Tuesday some of you will receive a Ziploc bag and you will have to send one thing that fits in the bag that begins with the letter of the week.

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:
Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs, by Mo Willems
This is another fun book from the creator of the Pigeon series and the Elephant and Piggy books.  Not only do kids love this one, but you’ll appreciate all the little jokes thrown in.  When the dinosaurs set a trap of three giant bowls of chocolate pudding, “a poorly supervised little girl named Goldilocks came along.”   Goldilocks is clueless that she has just fallen into a trap until she hears the dinosaurs talking about their catch.  “Goldilocks took a minute to stop and think, which was longer than she was used to stopping and thinking.”

How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? by Jane Yolen & Mark Teague is a fun rhyming story about dinosaurs and their silly bedtime routines. It is a great one to read at bedtime, too! While Jane Yolen has several dinosaur books in this collection, this the only one we have read {shame on me}. I guess I have my work cut out for me at the library this week!

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: “Five Little Ducks”
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 begin talking about HONDURAS.  The vocabulary words for this unit is the following: flag, coat of arms, anthem, orquid, pine tree, map, deer, money, heroe, macaw.   

Honduras Independence day is celebrated on September 15th, for this occation we will be having our traditional “Desayuno Catracho”.
We will be needing you support for our activity, this week we will send a letter home asking for specific articles or food for this special day.  +

For this unit we will wrap-up September (Honduras’ Month) with an Early Childhood assembly. Prek is representing traditional dresses and traditional dances. This will take place at Discovery School campus on September 30th. Prek-“A” will be dancing “El Suenito” (they will have to wear the Honduran traditional dress) and Prek “B” will be dancing Punta (they will have to wear garifuna clothing.)
