Week of Feb. 20-24

Dear Prek Parents,

Enjoy your holiday! See you on Tuesday. 

- 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
-Please make sure your child is ONLY bringing toys of topics required by the teacher. We have been receiving children with toys that do not belong to any of the studies we are having.

-This coming Friday, Feb. 24th is a Half-Day.. All school will be dismissed at 11:45am 

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 Rr. The vocabulary for this letter is: rabbit, robot, rocket, raccoon, rainbow, run, rhino, rug, ring, red, rose, rake

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 Tuesday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Lianna (Prek”A”) and Diego R. (Prek”B”).

Note: If you would like to share eatable things such as rosquillas, raisins, raspberry, rice, ravioli, reese’s, ruffles, ritz, etc. for children to taste. It would be awesome if instead of Tuesday 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.

We are attaching links of some of Letter R videos if you would like to listen and sing at home with your kid:

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
The Little Red Hen, The little red hen finds none of her lazy friends willing to help her plant, harvest, or grind wheat into flour, but all are eager to eat the bread she makes from it

In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with numbers 0-12on how to represent and idenify using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, and name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing. We will also be working with Graphing. Children will be able to represent an amount of objects on a graph.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Row, Row your Boat”
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 the unit about Feelings and Emotions. We are going to be discussing the different types of feelings. Children will get the chance to name them and know how to be a good friend and learn the words to express their feelings. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: happy, sad, worried, sleepy, surprised, confused, hot, embarrassed, nervous, cold, excited, thirsty, hungry. If you have any books or posters, ideas or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated.
