WELCOME to a new year of Pre-Kindergarten.  WE have 3 classes of Pre-k.  One greenbirds class, redbirds, and bluebirds.  The teachers are Ms. Sarah K., Ms G., Ms. Brenda, and Ms. Gina.   WE rotate our rooms according to the subject.  We will have a MATH, READING, CRAFT, AND circle time center each day.  Your children will have all of us as their teachers.  Their main class will be one of the colored rooms above.  After a few months of school we will then developmentally place your child in the center group that most fits their learning needs or strengths.  This is what we do daily:

  1.  CIRCLE TIME:  our subject or letter discussed and stories, puppets, songs, frolics, and other teaching tools will be used to reinforce the letter and help solidify the concept.  WE will do sign language, Spanish, and ABC each day along with the pledge and warm up songs.
  2. CRAFT CENTER:  A craft will also be used to correlate with the letter or theme.
  3. MATH:  number corresponding, recognition, and other developmentally appropriate games.
  4. READING:  Phonetics and whole language used to teach the site and sound.  Writing the letter in this center in our JOURNALS each week. Weekly Readers each week as well.

Our center bases their curriculum on the 5 areas of development and so does our focus on each child.  The physical, creative, emotional, cognitive, and social child.

 

Notes:  Workbook will always stay here until Parent review.  Share and tell is always Wednesday and Thursday each week.  Student of the day will begin in October or late September.  Please bring a family picture for our family classroom tree to hang.  A copy of one is fine.

JANUARY 2018:

This month will be about rhyme and reason.   We will be introducing the crazy and creative world of Nursery Rhymes along with integrating some traditional Fairy Tales.  We will not only learn these rhymes but acting them out and exploring the morals behind some of them.  Children will begin a poetry center and making up their own rhymes as well.  Journalism will be part of centers.  We will also begin Reading and Math centers and split up in groups that developmentally meet your childs needs.  Those ready to move into graphic readers will move forward and those still working on sight and sound will work on those.

Student of the day begins so please make sure you have your childs date and scheduled time.
