APRIL/ MAY CURRICULUM:
Our Pre-k classrooms will begin with review in week one and go full force. We will begin with progressive and interactive learning centers along with reading, math, and science each day. The reading bags will be left here and every few weeks will go home for parents to review, practice, and practice some more with their children. At this time, we are working more on decoding words in group time, sounding out words, and review. Reading bags are staying in their bookbags and children that are individually ready to move into higher readers are moving into them.
REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW! Each week go over our letters, sounds, and any other areas we tapped into. Int is important that children have the opportunity in solidifying skills by practice and repetition.
PRACTICE YOUR sounds/letters along with numbers 20-25. This is the time where we move quickly and it is important children are working on building these skills so they can build a stronger foundation in Reading and Math.
SHARE AND TELL: Every Wed and Thursday. They may bring whatever they would like.
