Week of Feb. 6-10

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 Pp. The vocabulary for this letter is: pencil, penguin, pizza, peacock, popcorn, pants, pumpkin, pineapple, pig, pancake, pirate, purple.

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 Gina (Prek”A”) and Cormac (Prek”B”).

Note: If you would like to share eatable things such as pear, papaya, pizza, pineapple, pasta, peach, peanuts, pie, pistachos, pomegranate, potatoes, pancakes, pepperoni, pudding, pandita gummies, poptarts 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.

This coming Friday, Feb. 10th we will have a PAJAMA POPCORN PARTY to wrap up letter Pp. Please send your child with pajamas and one bag of popcorn. Thank you.

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
The Three Little Pigs, by Al Dempster The three little pigs have never looked so cute and the big bad wolf never looked so bad in this retelling of the classic fairy tale! Vintage Disney artwork from the 1940s makes this book an important addition to every Little Golden Book collector’s library.

In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with number 11 on 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 Sorting. Children will be able to sort objects to the corresponding categories.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “This Little Piggy”
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 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.

As Valentine´s Day is around the corner, we are requesting you to help your child decorate a shoe box to be used as their mailbox. Be creative, and let your child brainstorm the ideas that he/she would like their box to look like. We are going to display all these lovely mailboxes on Tuesday, Feb. 14th for your child to deliver their valentine cards or treats for their friends. This is a voluntary activity. However, if you decide to participate, the only request that we have is that the students should bring one card or treat to each one of the Prek students. This mailbox should be in school by Monday, Feb. 13th .
We have a total of 22 students for now! Here is the list:
