Dear Prek Parents,
- Every Tuesday Homework is send home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back
- On Tuesdays with the homework we will send a bag in which you will have to bring something to school that begins with the letter of the week. This is to help us with our letter of the week manipulative center.
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays children have Motricity class. We are requesting that please send your child with tennis shoes and with shorts or pants. No skirts and no sandals. This is so that your child can be able to participate in every activity done during the class.
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 Gg. The vocabulary for this letter is: gate, guitar, grass, goat, green, glue, game, gum, gorilla, girl, goose, grapes
Children assigned should take from five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. The more things you bring the better. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Mizuki (Prek”A”) and Emiliano (Prek”B”).
Note 1: If you would like to share eatable things such as grapes, gorilla shaped cookies, 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 is 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:
Goldiclocks and the Three Bears, by James Marshall We never tire of the fairy tale adaptations by James Marshall. This is a special favorite because the main character is so unlike the Goldilocks we’ve met in other versions. “Goldilocks was one of those naughty little girls who do whatever they please.” Ignoring warning signs posted all over the trees, Goldilocks takes a short cut right to the bears’ house. Kids will giggle when she enters their home to find fur everywhere and thinks,“They must have kitties.”
Good Night, Gorilla, by Peggy Rathman Here’s another favorite book, perfect for bedtime. The zookeeper says good night to all the zoo animals, but the mischievous gorilla follows behind and unlocks all the cages. With very few words, the pictures tell most of the story
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 0-8.
Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Humpty Dumpty”
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 Children Around the World. We will be learning about Argentina and Japan. Students will get to know the flag, map, traditional dressing, food, drinks, traditional games, money, national animal and national flower and many more things that have to do with the country. If you have any poster or any other material that you are willing to share with the class, we would appreciate if you will let us borrow them from you.
Dress Up / Costume Day is around the corner. We are going to be having a celebration on Monday, October 31st. On this day students will come to school dressed up as their favorite book or movie character.
