It has been a pleasure getting to know your children during the first full week of school! It has also been a pleasure meeting you all. I look forward to a very exciting year school year filled with lots of learning adventures!
This week, we will be starting our new unit “Welcome to Pre-K.” During this unit, your children will learn; what they bring to the classroom community, who other people in the classroom community are, and important people in the school community.
During this week, we will continue to focus on rules, routines, safety, and hand washing rituals.
We will also be diving into exploring shapes and counting. We will be investigating how many sides, and angles shapes have and where we can find them in the real world.
For writing, this week we will be zooming in on the letter “A.” My goal this year with the alphabet will be to get your children to attain letter recognition, letter-keyword sound, alphabetic order, and letter formation.
In addition, through the interactive read out loud’s, your children will learn how to identify, express, and deal with their feelings in order to have an easier transition in Pre-k.
• Please remember to send in your child’s blanket in to school each Monday.

• Please send your child in with a snack and water bottle daily.
