Welcome to Pre-K 4! 

May 20th- May 24th 

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.  

Show and Share this week will be items that start with the letter Q, U, or V. Please be sure your child brings in an item to match our theme, since this is a time when we discuss letter sounds.

This week I will begin assessing students for the End of the Year Assessment.  

Literacy and Writing: This week we will continue our Unit called, "Make It Move", discussing rolling, sliding, pushing, and pulling.

In our green books, we will learn to write the uppercase letters Y and Z and identify words that begin with those sound. I am looking closely to be sure students are holding their crayons correctly, I am catching a lot of kids holding their writing tools the right way! We are also practicing identifying uppercase and lowercase letters and some sight words. 

Math: We will continue practicing drawing shapes. We will also learn how to write the number 10. 

Religion: We will be learning about how friends of Jesus pray with one another. On Wednesday we will begin a program called Lures. Please look for a letter about the program that will be sent home in blue folders on Monday. On Friday morning we will attend an assembly with the school about Recycling.  

Science: Science will be integrated this week as we discuss how objects move. We will also view a Clifford Magazine about insects and how to tell if a bug is an insect.

Kindergarten Open House will be held on Wednesday, May 22nd at 9 am. I will be at the orientation with the children from our class who have signed up for this special event.
