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 Jenni, Ms. Brenda, and Ms. Gina.   WE rotate our rooms according to the subject.  We will have a MATH, READING/literacy, 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 TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY each week. 

PARTY DAYS will also land on a Tuesday and Wednesday
