Week of Aug. 14-18

Dear Prek Parents, 

This week we are going to start working with the alphabet. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, we will also focus on the letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. We will begin studying about the letter Aa. The vocabulary for this letter is: apple, ant, alligator, astronaut, ambulance, ax, arrow, anteater, acrobat, accordion, animals.

Two children will be assigned each week with each letter. In this case, the 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 Ariel (Prek”A”) and Alejandro (Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday you will have to share for 22 students eatable things such as apples, almond, asparagus, avocado, apricot,  etc. for children to taste. We do this to close 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.

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Ten Apples Up on Top, by Theo. LeSeig
Did you know Theo. LeSieg was a pen name for Dr. Seuss?  This is a favorite book about a lion, tiger, and dog who compete to see who can balance the most apples on top of their heads. It’s also a great beginning reader book for kids who are learning sight words. Dr. Seuss did an amazing job telling engaging stories with basic words.  “And now, see here.  Eight!  Eight on top!  Eight apples up!  Not one will drop.”  Don’t miss it!

The Lady with the Alligator Purse, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott
We love singing books, we are big fans of the silly song about a baby named Tiny Tim who tries to eat a bathtub.  Miss Lucy calls the doctor, the nurse… and the lady with the alligator purse.

In math, will begin working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. We will begin working this week with numbers 0-5.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “The Ants Go Marching”
I am attaching you the link of the video 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 first Social Studies unit we will be talking about MY FAMILY. Some of the vocabulary words we will are learning in this unit are: mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, sister, brother, baby, uncle, aunt,

For this unit, we are requesting a family picture that will be displayed in the classroom throughout our family study.

On Friday, Aug. 25th we will have a “Show&Tell About My Family” for this little project we need your help. Children will have to bring a poster with family pictures and they should be able to describe their family members and talk about it in front of their classmates. You may practice at home. Be as creative as possible. This will be presented during working stations. Thank you for your support. Any questions be free to contact us. 

We will be sending homework from Tuesday-Thursday.  Please make sure the notebook is sent back to school on Thursday. Make sure that your child has time to play after school and on weekends. Now that your child is beginning to spend more time in a structured school environment, you should allow more free time at home for play. Specially for the Full-Day program. Prek homework includes playtime at all times!

Please remember to check your child’s folder and send it back to school the next day, you may stay with the notebook for the homework but please send the folder back to school every day. We are working on this special routine with the students. Remember that this is the best way for you to communicate with us.

DISMISSAL – We remind our parents that our student’s safety is our number one priority, and that every mechanism we use during the dismissal at 3:00 p.m. is geared towards that purpose. Please follow the instructions and procedures established by the teachers on parking lot duty, and ask your drivers to do so as well. Slow down when driving in and out of campus, and roll the window down so the teachers in the parking lot can call your child(ren) ahead of time. We thank you for your patience and cooperation in these first days of the school year.

STICKERS FOR YOUR VEHICLES – Each family will be issued a sticker for his/her car free of charge. Additional stickers may be purchased if needed at the Administrative building. Please make sure you bring the license plate number for the car(s) you are purchasing sticker(s) for.

Supply list: If you still haven't brought all the materials yet, I'll be very much thankful if could send the rest or everything this coming week.

Thanks a lot for your help!
