Week of Oct. 24-27

Dear Prek Parents,
  • Every Tuesday Homework is sent home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back
  • On Tuesday’s 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 Thursday 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.
  • 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.

Thank you all for coming in last Friday for the Parent-Teacher conferences. It is wonderful to work with such a dedicated group of parents and students.

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 Hh. The vocabulary for this letter is: heart, hair, helicopter, hippo, hammer, horse, hamburger, hat, hero, hot dog, hands

Children assigned should take 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 Pilar (Prek”A”) and Joshua (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.

On Tuesday, October 25th we will have a Hat Day. Your child should go to school wearing a hat. 

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson is a classic children's book first published in 1955 that features a calm, upbeat but mostly silent little boy who creates his surroundings with his ever-present purple crayon. He makes up his own fun, and even gets scared by some of his drawings: He's chased by a dragon he draws, he falls of a mountain he draws, he has to draw a boat to save himself from drowning in the sea he accidentally draws. Successive generations have enjoyed Harold's inventive adventures. Harold and the Purple Crayon is a wonderful celebration of imagination and independent play that also has been adapted for an animated HBO Family TV series and is available as an app.  
Building a House by Byron Barton uses simple text and clear, simple images to show the process of house building from the ground up. For kids fascinated with construction {and even those that aren’t} it is sure to please.
In math, will be working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-9.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Hickory Dickory Dock”
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.
This we week we will be cooking food of Japan and Argentina. We will need your support with some ingredients. You will receive it on Monday. This should be at school on Wednesday.

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.
We will also be trick or treating around school. Please send in one bag of candies, lollipops, chocolates or any small treats or toys. Please send in by Tuesday October 25th. We are also requesting Lps. 50.00 for the treat bag. Please send them by Friday October 28th.
