Week of Jan. 23-27

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 and notebook back
- 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.
-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 Oo. The vocabulary for this letter is: ox, oatmeal, octagon, octopus, overalls, olives, ostrich, old, orange, otter, oven, omelette

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 Diego V. (Prek”A”) and Catalina (Prek”B”).

Note: If you would like to share eatable things such as oatmeal cookies, onion rings, orange juice, orange, omelette, oreo 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.
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 Tuesday, Jan. 24th, please send one small bottle of vinegar and one empty bottle. Thank you!

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell This is the story of three baby owls who wake up one night in their hole in the tree to find that their mother has gone, so they sit on the branch and wait, wondering when she will return. At last she does, and they all bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home

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: “Old McDonald”
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 begin our amazing the unit about Community Helpers. We are going to be discussing the different types of professions.  Children will get the chance to name the tools, transportations and what does each of the professions do. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: hair stylist, firefighter, policeman, doctor, vet, nurse, builder, chef, farmer, teacher, mailman, dentist.  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 and community helper’s objects they have at home to share and play we will send them two weeks.

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

To close our Community Helpers unit we are planning on a Show and Tell Presentation that will be on Friday, February 3rd. Each child will be assigned with an occupation, they will have to answer the following questions. "What do I do?" "How do I transport?" "What tools do I use?" "Where do I work?" Children should come dressed as the community helper that they will be assigned. We are NOT demanding an expensive or fancy suit, it is up to you how and what you are going to use. Children should also bring a poster illustrating the questions, this will be a help while they present.  
The assigned occupations for each child will be sended by the WA group on Monday. 
Enjoy doing this project with your child. Involve them in everything you plan. Any doubts or questions please contact us as soon as possible.

This coming Wednesday, Jan. 25th we will be having a small farewell for Simon. He will be leaving the country. Simon’s family is from Venezuela and they are preparing something for us to share together and learn about this beautiful country. Have a great trip Simon and family. Our Wolf pack will always remember you and you will always be part of us. Have a great trip.

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:
