HELLO !

Welcome to PreK 4!

Please check out the REMINDERS below. :)


HELLO FALL ! :) 

October 22-26, 2018

This week we will continue focusing on Pre-writing skills
such as distinguishing right vs. left, tracing, pulling down, sliding right, and writing our first names.

We will also continue to work on sorting, patterns, calendar (including the day of the week, month, date, and year), and position words (in front of, next to, behind).

So far, we have enjoyed working with play-doh, watercolor paints, tempera paints, crayons, clay and finger paints. This week we will use our YELLOW play dough that we made and blend it with RED to make a secondary color...Orange! :) We will also do the same with fingerpaints.

Because it is a Vowel and has 2 sounds, our Letter of the Week is still "I", and we are focusing on the Color Orange. When we begin to look, the letters seem to pop up everywhere! Please encourage the search. They love "I spy..." and you can play it anywhere! :) 

During this week and next, we will also focus on Pumpkin Science! We will be investigating pumpkins and using our observation skills to determine size, color, texture and taste. We will also learn about the Life Cycle of pumpkins and predict whether or not they will float. 

SHOW & SHARE If your child didn't have a chance to bring something in, we will present the rest this week.  
Please help your child find an item that begins with the

letter I or something Orange. If possible, challenge them to find both characteristics in 1 item! Every day, I am learning and loving how many creative thinkers we have in PreK4. 
It's truly wonderful to see! 


*All of PK4 has met with their Prayer Partners in Grade 7.
Most are very excited about the idea. It's like a celebrity sighting when a Prayer Partner is spotted in the hallway or the cafeteria.
:) However, some are still hesitant about the idea of interacting with the "big kids", and that's OK! Hopefully, with each new activity, they wil become more comfortable and involved. But, for now, please assure your child that he/she can have as little or as much interaction as they are comfortable with. They will all have another opportunity to spend time with Prayer Partners for a Halloween activity this Friday afternoon.
