August 13-17, 2018

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.

The alphabet is one of the most important things we study in Pre-K. For this reason, and to make our lessons meaningful one student will be assigned weekly to bring at least five (5) items that begin with the letter of the week. Items should be from toys/ things they have at home. Students need to bring them on Monday and we will send them back on Friday.  Also, every Friday that same student will bring something to share for 17 students.  Sharing things can be apples, almonds, asparagus, avocado, apricot, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter A unit. 
For this week, we have invited Gaia Reyes to share and bring letter Aa items.

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,

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 number 1 and counting up to 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.

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

On Friday, Aug. 24th 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. Pre-K homework always includes playtime !
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.

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.
