We have had a wonderful first week together! The children are settling into the routines of school and are having fun getting to know each other. Our focus has been learning the routines and procedures of school, which is incorporated into our first unit I Can Do It, Yes I Can. Through this unit we focus on building independence and responsibility.
We have also focused on the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See. We have been doing activities with the color brown and bears this week. As part of our focus we have also read Panda Bear, Panda Bear Who Do You See, and Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear. Next week we will continue with our bear theme by reading and retelling Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have also focused bears in our art activities. The children have made a variety of crafts involving bears and the color brown. Please check out the our photo gallery or stop by our room to see their work!
There is no school on Thursday, Sept. 21st.
On Sunday, Sept. 24th, we will have a Teddy Bear Picnic with Mrs. Waldo’s class. Your child can bring a teddy bear to school that day as well.
Thursday, Sept. 28th is our first color day! Please help your child find something brown to wear on this day. The children do not have to wear their uniforms. But please make sure they can use the toilet easily in whatever clothes they wear. If you don’t have brown clothes, it’s fine to have them just pick out something brown to share for show and tell on Thursday.
Please continue to have your child wear their Red shirt until October 5th.
CALENDAR– On this page, you will find the updated September calendar with a few new additions. Each month we will adding new information which will be helpful for the many “special days” we have in Pre-K.
Please send in one baby photo (under 1 year) of your child by October 5th for an activity we will do. It should be just one photo, 3×5 to 5×7 size, and not in a frame. We will keep the photos here and use them in the portfolio. You have the option to email me the photo if this is easier.
