Week of Aug. 21-25

Dear Prek Parents
This week we are going to continue 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 Bb. The vocabulary for this letter is: bat, bird, butterfly, bottle, book, bat, bee, bear, balloon, bed, boy, ball.

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 Christopher (Prek”A”) and Camila (Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, you will have to share for 22 students eatable things such as banana split, bread, beans, beef, banana, banana bread, biscuit, blueberries, bacon, bagel, brownies, 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.

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

We would like your support on occasionally review the ABC’s letter names and sound. Here are some songs we use in class every day.

Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a children's picture book published in 1967. Written and illustrated by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle, the book is designed to help toddlers associate colors and meanings to objects

Brontorina, by James Howe
Poor Brontorina!  How will she be able to achieve her dream of being a ballerina when she’s too big for the studio?  Thankfully, her teacher realizes that it’s not that Brontorina is too big.  It’s that the studio is too small!  This is a fun story which also teaches a good lesson: find a way to include everyone, even those that are a little different.

In math, will be 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: “We are Going on a Bear Hunt”
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 our 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 also 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, meaning the homework will be pasted on the notebook and sent home on Tuesday. you have Tuesday and Wednesdat to do the homework.  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 always!

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.
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!
This Monday, August 21 our school will be conducting several activities because of the Solar Eclipse that will be taking place from approximately 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Please carefully review the following:
Nursery and Pre-Kinder Parents.  Because an eclipse presents a potential danger to the eyes, we feel our little ones’ best interest is to be home when the Solar Eclipse happens. We have decided we will be dismissing Nursery and Pre-Kinder at 10:55 a.m. time when our buses will depart from school to get them home before 11:45 a.m. If you pick your child up, we ask that you be here promptly to avoid being caught in traffic when the eclipse begins.
During the period of the eclipse, please do not let your child look directly at the sun.  They can watch it on the television.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
Older Children.  We will be using a mixture of indirect viewing techniques and special lenses to ensure the safety of your children as we take advantage of this learning opportunity.  Parents are welcome to come to school to observe our procedures.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if there are any questions.

Friday, Aug. 25th – Early Dismissal (11:45 am) for ALL STUDENTS
