Hello families!

I hope you all enjoyed playing in the snow this weekend! I wanted to give you a quick update about the week:

 

February 14th- Valentine’s Day is this Wednesday, February 14th. We will not be having a Valentine’s day party in our classroom, but if you child would like to bring in valentine’s cards to send home we will pass them out at the end of the day on Wednesday. We have 16 children in our classroom. Due to food allergies please DO NOT SEND CANDY. This will help all children in our school to stay safe and have an enjoyable day.

 

February 15th – February Parent Meeting. This month’s parent meeting will take place in our classroom on Thursday, February 15th at 9:00am. We will be talking about what literacy skills look like in preschool and was you can help your child at home. Please plan to stay at school with your child for about an hour, and do your best to find care for your younger children. This will make it easier for you to work with your preschooler during our fun activities!

 

February 19-23 – No school, Mid-Winter Break!

 

Have a great afternoon!

Mrs. Stortini and Ms. Thabet

Hello Families!

This week during small group time we talked about counting and measuring. We used measuring tapes to talk about the difference between long and short, and tall and small. We then used the measuring tapes to measure how far we could jump as well as went on a “measuring walk” around the school.

 

A few reminders for next week:

~No school Monday, January 15th – MLK Jr Day.

~Parent Meeting, Thursday January 18th. 10:30-11:30am in our classroom.

 

Have a great weekend!

Hello Families!

What a busy week we have had! Thank you to everyone for joining us on our library field trip on Tuesday. The children enjoyed reading stories, reciting rhymes, and doing finger plays while parents had a tour of the library.

  

The children have been enjoying the snow outside all week, so we brought a bit of the winter weather inside by putting snow in the water table and “ice skating” in the classroom using wax paper.

We finished out the week with pajama day and fun activities with our next door neighbors Ms. Stafiej’s and Ms. Abdellah’s class.

 

 

Have a great Winter Break and we will see you back at school on January 8th!

Hello Families!

 

We love the snow! The children were so excited to put on their snow pants and play in the snow yesterday, we caught snow flakes and made an igloo with a parachute while singing ring around the rosie.

 

This week during small group time the children went on a number hunt around the school and practiced recognizing numbers using numeral dot cards.

 

    

Our letter of the week this week was S. Throughout the week we made a list of words we knew that began with the letter S, as well as focused on the sound it makes. The children then created a page for our letter S book which was added to our book area.

 

Have a great weekend!
