Week of Oct. 16-20

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

·        On Tuesdays with the homework we will send a bag in which you will have to bring something to school that begins with the letter of the week. This is to help us with our letter of the week manipulative center.

·        All week 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.

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 Gg. The vocabulary for this letter is: gate, guitar, grass, goat, green, glue, game, gum, gorilla, girl, goose, grapes

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 Mateo (Prek”A”) and Mia (Prek”B”).

***Note: On Thursday, the assigned students, will have to share for 22 friends eatable things such as grapes, gummy bears, guacamole, green candies, letter Gg cookies, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit.

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 Gg 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:
Goldiclocks and the Three Bears, by James Marshall We never tire of the fairy tale adaptations by James Marshall.  This is a special favorite because the main character is so unlike the Goldilocks we’ve met in other versions.  “Goldilocks was one of those naughty little girls who do whatever they please.”  Ignoring warning signs posted all over the trees, Goldilocks takes a short cut right to the bears’ house.  Kids will giggle when she enters their home to find fur everywhere and thinks,“They must have kitties.”

Good Night, Gorilla, by Peggy Rathman Here’s another favorite book, perfect for bedtime.  The zookeeper says good night to all the zoo animals, but the mischievous gorilla follows behind and unlocks all the cages.  With very few words, the pictures tell most 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 begin working this week with numbers 0-8. We will also be working on sorting items that are big, medium and small.

We would like your support on occasionally review counting and 
numbers. Here are some songs we use in class every day:

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Humpty Dumpty”
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 Children Around the World. We will be learning about Colombia. Students will get to know the flag, map, traditional dressing, food, drinks, traditional games, money, national animal and national flower and many more things that have to do with the country. 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.
Dress Up / Costume Day is around the corner. We are going to be having a celebration on Tuesday, October 31st. On this day students will come to school dressed up as their favorite movie character.
We will also be trick or treating around school. Please send in one bag of candies, lollipops, chocolates or any small treats or toys. Please send in by Thursday, October 26th  

Our Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place this Friday, October 20th. Conferences for the first quarter are mandatory at Discovery School. Parents will be contacted this week. There will be NO SCHOOL for Students on this day

FUNDACION ABRIGO – Is an organization which provides lodging for families from outside Tegucigalpa who bring their families/patients to the largest state medical facility, Hospital Escuela. Discovery School in solidarity with Fundacion Abrigo is asking for a donation of 1 GALON OF DISINFECTANT per family by Tuesday, Oct. 31. Thank you very much! It is always far better to give than to receive!

The DPTO is excited to announce that the UN Day celebration is near.  This school tradition is not possible without your help. It is free to participate; your country will be given a cultural table that you can set up as you like. There is a handbook available (attached in the link below) to help you prepare.  If you can’t do it by yourself, let us know: we are here to help.  We have already contacted many of you about your involvement; if you have not heard from us and want to participate, please let us know.
