updates from pre-K program

Pre-K 1 - Weekly update - W/O 5/13/19

Hello Everyone,

What a fun week we had!  Thank you to all the chaperones that came with us on our field trip to the Larson senior center. The children did a great job singing and they brought lots of smiles to faces! Today we released our butterflies outside and watched them take off on their journey!

REMINDERS: Please bring a coat everyday to school.  We go out at 10:30 and it is sometimes very chilly! Also, some children are very hungry at snack time, please pack extra snacks!

Reading Street: Our reading street book this week was Night Shift Daddy by Eileen Spinelli. The girl in the story shares time with her daddy.  Daddy makes good treats, reads stories, and tucks her in bed.  Then the girl does the same for her daddy when he comes home from work.  Our amazing words were clocks, night, shares, work, sleep, and snores.

This week in our centers:

Dramatic Play: Our dramatic play center has turned into a flower shop.

Math: At the math table the children used unifix cubes to measure the height and width of dinosaurs. 

Discovery table: This week at the discovery table we observed our cocoons and got to see one emerge on Wednesday.

Art Table: At the art table the children wrote their name and stamped it with dinosaur footprints.

Easel: At the easel the children traced and painted butterflies.

Sensory Table: In our sensory table for the month of May we have soil, bugs, gardening toils and pots.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask. My email is barb0417@msn.com

Warmly,

Mrs. Travers & Mrs. Renoni

 

Pre-K 2 - Weekly update - W/O 5/13/19

Hello Pre K Families,

After a few cloudy days, we had a wonderful Thursday and let our 6 butterflies free at recess today!!

Here is what went on in the centers this week…

Art Easel- Sponge painting using different shapes and size sponges.

Discovery Table-Observing our classroom butterflies and drawing a picture of them. Also, sensory bottles and gloves.

Art Table- Z if for Zinnia and Zebra masks. We also painted butterflies. Folding the paper in half to paint and then transferring the paint to the other side. We discussed the fact a butterflies wings are identical.

Reading Street Book- “Houses A to Z” All different houses people live in all around the world.

Z Song- Zip and Zig Zag to the Zoo. This was a class favorite!

********We are done with the alphabet, but not show and tell!! Tuesday is our class talent show. I have told the children they can show us anything that they want, a song, a magic trick, a joke, a dance, karate move, instrument or bringing a toy and show us how it works. I am asking that NO stuffed animals come in for this one.

Mrs. Vivar and I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

Have a great weekend.

Warmly,

Robin Pascal
