Dear PreK Families,
Thank you so much for coming in last month for PTC meetings. It is always so nice to meet with you all and discuss student progress.
We completed a lengthy unit on Fairy and Folk Tales. We read the following stories: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood, and The Little Red Hen. We read classic versions of these stories and new versions as well. It was interesting to compare the different versions. The students played with may manipulatives, and dress up items to retell the well known stories. They also enjoyed making puppets to bring home.
We did several hands on projects related to the stories. We tried to grow magic green beans just like Jack did. Please let us know if your child planted his or her bean plant and let us know if it produces beans. Everyone enjoyed making mini pizzas, just like The Little Red Hen Who Made a Pizza. Lastly, we voted on our favorite stories if all of the books that we read.
Currently, we are doing a unit about science, and are learning about topics such as magnets, rocks, and force and motion. This Friday, your child may bring in a special rock from home to share with the class. Your child should be able to pick up his/her own rock independently.
After the school vacation, we will be learning about communities and community helpers.
We are sending home snowpants at this point. We are hoping that the we don’t have any more storms at this point. If it snows again, please send your child with snowpants again.
April Vacation: 4/15-4/19
