Dear PreK Families,
Thank you to everyone who came in for PTC. It was great to meet with you all.
We have finished our study of fall and are now working on short unit on the five senses and being healthy. We have been reading many non-fiction texts and doing some hands-on activities. The students have enjoyed working at the science table, using mirrors, looking through color paddles, listening to different bells, making a texture collage, and listening to different things outside. We will also smell mystery items in closed containers, and do a taste test for sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. In the classroom, the children have had fun playing with the doctor kit, to check on our eyes, ears, and body to make sure that we are all healthy. However, they all really like to give shots.
We have continued to work on the alphabet using the Fundations and have covered letters A to J, learning the name, keyword and letter sound. Next in math, we will be doing work around patterns. First we will learn about AB patterns, and then move on to ABC patterns.
The Thanksgiving feast is coming up soon on November 21st. This is a memorable day for everyone at school. All of the students and teachers eat a full Thanksgiving dinner in the gym. Our class is responsible for the applesauce. Please send in a jar of applesauce to the classroom collection. Our schedule will also be different on that day so that all of the students can be present for the feast. The AM class will come to school from 10:15 to 1 pm. The PM class will come from 11:45 to 2:30pm. Thank you for being flexible so that all students may enjoy this special day.
After the Thanksgiving Recess, we will be working on a physical science unit including magnets, rocks, and force and motion.
