Mrs Kathleen Baliga Web Pages

Welcome to Pre-K 4! 

February 20th- February 22nd 

Hello Families of Pre-K 4. You can use this webpage to see our weekly activities in our classroom. Please check your child's communication folder for any important information and return the folder to school daily. 

There will be NO SCHOOL Monday and Tuesday for February Break. We will see you back in school on Wednesday, February 20th.  

There is NO SHOW AND SHARE for the short week. We will resume next week (February 25th) with the letter I. Please be sure your child brings in an item to match our theme, since this is a time when we discuss letter sounds.   

Literacy and Writing: We have began our unit on the jungle, focusing on what a jungle is and what animals live in the jungle. This week we will be learning about how animals stay safe in the jungle. 

In our green books, we will learn to write the uppercase letter J and identify words that begin with the /j/ sound. I am looking closely to be sure students are holding their crayons correctly. 

Math: We will be practicing identifying patterns in sound. On Wednesday we will use rhythm sticks to listen for and copy patterns created by a partner. We have also begun to learn how to write numbers 1-10 in print. This week we will learn how to write the number 2.  First, students will be shown how to write the letter in their Green books. After, students will each be given their own mini-book to practice writing. We will finish most of the pages in school but will often leave 1 or 2 pages blank for you to practice at home.   

Religion: We will discuss Valentine's Day and how we can show others that we care for them. We will practice showing others in our classroom that we care by giving compliments.  

Science: Science will be integrated through our discussion of jungles. On Friday we will do an experiment where we will learn how to mix primary colors. We will also discuss how jungle animals are able to stay safe in the jungle. 

Social Studies: Social Studies will be integrated as we discuss showing kindness to others in our classroom.
