HELLO !

Welcome to PreK 4:)

"Q" is for the Queen of Hearts

February 11-15, 2019

Happy St. Valentine's Day! 
*We will exchange Valentine cards to show love
to our friends on Thurs. Feb. 14.

We have added a few fun additions to our PreK4 program!

Mrs. Kathi Getka will be having music class with us on Tuesdays.

Ms. Kathy Filippo will continue working with us as we learn the American Sign Language (ASL). PLUS. she will be helping us in PreK4 on Tues. Weds. and Thurs. mornings. Ms. Filippo taught Kindergarten at BMc, so she is teaching us some new and fun ideas. We are so happy to have her help! J


Our Letter of the Week is Q. When we begin to look and listen the letters and words seem to pop up everywhere! Please encourage the search. They love playing "I spy..." and you can play it anywhere! 


Our Math components will involve identifying symmetry when folding and cutting, counting, identifying numbers and which events come first, next, and last (order of operations), matching numerals with the number of items.

Our color focus this week is on Red, Blue, Pink, and Purple as we create a Valentine crafts.

SHOW & SHARE:  Generally, this will take place on Thursdays & Fridays. Although, if your child is absent or super excited about sharing something extra-special, we will try to squeeze it in on another day. This week we are sharing something beginning with Q and/or a picture of someone we LOVE...

Challenge your child (and yourself;) to find both characteristics in one!  Every day, I am learning and loving how many creative thinkers we have in PreK4. It's truly wonderful to see! 


SHOW & SHARE is a great way to encourage early creative writing skills. By describing the item using clues and characteristics, ("It is something that is enormous, with huge ears, and lives in Africa, but we can visit at a zoo") students are using adjectives and descriptive words to tell about their treasure. Eventually, this story-telling will develop into story-writing. :)


*Prayer Partner Update.... I can happily say that they all PK4 students seem to have become very comfortable with their Prayer Partners. We will be doing a Dr. Seuss activity with them soon!
