Week of Aug. 28 - Sept. 1

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 back

-Please make sure your child is only bringing toys of the letter of the week or the theme we are studying. We have been receiving daily, children with toys that do not belong to the letter or theme.

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 Cc. The vocabulary for this letter is: car, cat, carrot, crown, clown, crab, coat, cap, cookie, cow, cake, candies.

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

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share for 22 friends eatable things such as carrot sticks, carrot cake, corn, candies, caramel, cookies, cake, cucumber, crepes, corndogs, cotton candy, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit.

We are requesting that each child brings one bag of skittles to school on Thursday.
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 Cc 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:
If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, by Laura Numeroff
This is another title in the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series. While this one feels a bit more contrived than others in the series, the pictures and story are still irresistible.  If you give a cat a cupcake, he’s going to want sprinkles to go with it… and on the story goes.

The Carrot Seed, by Ruth Krauss
This is an extremely simple story that has been popular for generations.  A little boy plants a carrot seed, but everyone else is quite sure a plant won’t come up. They get quite a surprise at the end of the story

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 continue working this week with numbers 0-5.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Alice the Camel”
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 first Science unit we will be learning about MY BODY. We will begin with this unit this week. Some of the vocabulary words we will be learning this week are: head, mouth, eyes, ears, nose, toes, fingers, arm, elbow, and hands. If you have any poster or any other material that you are willing to share with the class, we would appreciate if you will let us borrow them from you.

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 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!
