August 20-24, 2018

Dear Pre-K Parents
Hope you had an amazing weekend. We will continue our journey with the alphabet. This week we will be working with letter Bb, recognizing, and naming the letter with its sound; we will also focus on  letter formation, and vocabulary. Please remember to emphasize the short vowel sound.  

Bb is for: bat, bird, butterfly, bottle, book, bat, bee, bear, balloon, bed, boy, ball.
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:

 Every week one student will be assigned a letter. He/ She need to bring  at least five (5) items (that they have at home) 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. For this week, we have invited Anrrieth Morillo Rojas to share and bring letter Bb items.

***Note: On Friday, you will have to share for 17 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.

Thanks for your support!!

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.

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.

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. 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.
