HELLO !

Welcome to PreK 4!
Please check out the REMINDERS below. :)


HELLO FALL ! :) 

October 15-19, 2018

This week we will continue focusing on Pre-writing skills
such as distinguishing right vs. left, tracing, pulling down, sliding right, and writing our first names (UPPERCASE).

We will also continue to work on sorting, patterns, calendar (including the day of the week, month, date, and year), and position words (in front of, next to, behind).

So far, we have enjoyed working with play-doh, watercolor paints, tempera paints, crayons and clay. This week we will work with finger paints to practice our writing and creativity, as well as make our own YELLOW play dough to add into our Art Center!

Our Letter of the Week is I, and we are also focusing on the Color YELLOW. When we begin to look, the letters seem to pop up everywhere! Please encourage the search. They love "I spy..." and you can play it anywhere! :) 

During this week and next, we will also focus on Pumpkin Science! We will be investigating pumpkins and using our observation skills to determine size, color, texture and taste. We will also learn about the Life Cycle of pumpkins and predict whether or not they will float. 

SHOW & SHARE will be on Weds. and Thurs. (Fri. if needed)
Please help your child find an item that begins with the
letter I or something Yellow. if possible, challenge them to find both characteristics in 1 item! Every day, I am learning and loving how many creative thinkers we have in PreK4!
It's truly wonderful to see! 

*All of PK4 will has met with their Prayer Partners in Grade 7.
Most are very excited about the idea. It's like a celebrity sighting when a Prayer Partner is spotted in the hallway or the cafeteria.
:) However, some are still hesitant about the idea of interacting with the "big kids", and that's OK! Hopefully, with each new activity, they wil become more comfortable and involved. But, for now, please assure your child that he/she can have as little or as much interaction as they are comfortable with. They will all have another opportunity to spend time with Prayer Partners for a Halloween activity on Oct. 26th. More info to follow....... :)
