Sabreen sent this picture today and I think she speaks for all of us! We all have been missing our friends, our teachers and our school families! It’s definitely been quite a year! Mrs. Dara and I are so proud of all of our students and families! Thank you for supporting education and staying involved during quarantine! We know it was a challenge. You all worked soooo hard!
We will continue to stay in touch and please anytime you have a question or just want to talk don’t hesitate to get in touch with Mrs. Dara or me.
Students will be getting something in the mail from us soon, so please be sure to have them check the mailbox with you!
Even though we don’t have any more school activities, I wanted to share some summer activity calendars. These are of course optional but a good way to keep learning fun until the new school year. I will send another out in July and August…
Just wanted to send this picture so that children can see our class is all cleaned up and all the toys have been put away! This may help children understand that preschool is closed, but they can look forward to their next classroom which will be KINDERGARTEN!
I’m sure they will have many feelings after seeing this picture. Be sure to acknowledge their feelings and remind them that schools closed so that we could all stay safe and healthy! Encourage them to think about next year and how they will be moving on to KINDERGARTEN!
Here is a fun book about a boy named Henry getting ready for Kindergarten!
It’s your choice for learning today… pick 1 or 2 or 3… remember everyday experiences offer our children so much!
MOVEMENT: LET’S GET IN SOME COUNTING AND EXERCISE TODAY!
PLAYTIME! DON’T FORGET TO MAKE A PLAN FOR PLAYTIME…
5 to 10 Minutes
Plan for Work Time (playtime): Build your child’s ability to organize their time by having them make a “plan” with you about what they would like to play with. Children do this every day with us at school. It helps children learn to organize their thoughts. Kids will tell you what they are planning to do/want to play with/how they will use toys at home.
Work time/Kids play WITHOUT ELECTRONICS Kids can use toys to pretend play, build, and create.
Clean Up: Kids clean up the mess they have made while playing. If you notice your child making too big of a mess during play, it’s ok to remind them to clean up what they have already finished using before they move on to the next part of their plan.
5 to 10 min
Recall: Build your child’s memory of events by having your child tell you what they did while they played (ask “tell me how you did that” or “what did you do next?”)
Let’s do a letter K scavenger hunt. Have fun looking for letter Kk objects. Send me a picture of the things you find.
Today we are going to play a math game using your sidewalk chalk and the hose. Have mom or dad help your write the numbers 0-10 on the sidewalk with your chalk. Then have mom or dad say a number, you will need to find the number on the sidewalk and use the hose to erase it away. Watch the following video as an example.
Challenge: Play the game using the numbers 10-20
I wonder if you can think of some other actions that weren’t mentioned in the song. Have fun with this! Get your whole family involved!
