Week of Jan 16-20

Dear Prek Parents,
Thank you for attending the conferences on Friday! This 3rd quarter comes full of busy time in Prekinder!
Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Enjoy the holiday.

- Every Tuesday Homework is sent home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder and notebook back
- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday's 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.

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 Nn. The vocabulary for this letter is: nurse, necklace, notebook, net, noodles, nut, nose, night, nail, nap, nest, nine.

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 Daniel (Prek”A”) and Bella (Prek”B”).
Note: If you would like to share eatable things such as nut, noodles, nachos, nuggets, nerds, nesquik, nutella, 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.
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.

For Wednesay, Jan. 18th, please send one newspaper and a magazine (if you have, please send magazines that have transportation items) Thank you!

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
The Napping House by Audrey Woods Included in the napping house menagerie is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp! Don Wood’s delightfully detailed comical illustrations are bathed in moonlight blues until the sun comes up, then all is color and rainbows and a very awake household.

Noisy Nora by Rosemary Wells It's tough being the middle mouse. No one's paying any attention to Nora, so she decides to do something her family can't ignore: make noise. Nora slams windows, bangs doors, and upsets furniture, to no avail. It's not until she crashes out the door--and the house goes strangely silent--that her family realizes: a noisy Nora is much better than no Nora at all. "A wonderful story."

In math, will continue working with numbers. We will review numbers 0-10 on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “1, 2, buckle my shoe”
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 Social Studies we will continue our amazing the unit about Transportation. We are going to be discussing the different types of vehicles. Children will get the chance to name vehicles that travel by air, by land and by water. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: airplane, boat, air balloon, car, bus, bicycle, motorcycle, submarine, ambulance, helicopter, train, fire truck and rocket. If you have any books or posters, or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated. Children can bring any of these transportation objects they have at home to share and play we will send them back home this coming Friday.

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

It is hard to believe that the 100th day of school is quickly approaching and so it is time for us to start planning the festivities. This exciting day is going to be on Friday, January 27th. For this, we would like for you to help your child come dressed with a “100 day of school dressing project.”  Some items that you may want to use are pennies, cotton balls, q-tips, dot stickers, legos, popsicle sticks, wiggly eyes, buttons, etc. The following pictures are just examples of what you can come up with:
