Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter 9.17

Posted on September 17, 2021

We had a great first week of school! Over the first few days we have watched students learn and actively participate in our daily routines. 

We read the book Chu’s First Day of School and discussed our feelings during our first few days of school, as well as some of our special skills and interests!

We have started to discuss school rules, including the rules we will follow during a fire drill. We have talked about being kind, listening to friends and teachers, keeping our bodies calm inside the classroom and wearing our masks.

Weekly Letter 9.17

Next week we will continue to learn our daily routines. We will also be talking about our feelings during the school day.

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 6.18

Posted on June 18, 2021

This week we discussed many things in nature that change or transform, including the weather and seasons, the metamorphasis of some insects, and animals that transform to camouflage themselves.  We read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and compared this to non-fiction books about caterpillars and butterflies.  

At the Art Center we created butterfly blots and looked at the symmetry of their wings. 

At recess we looked at what happens to a puddle in the sun as we painted with water on the ground. We also looked at the changing shapes in the clouds and went on a bug hunt.  We found a spider, ant and butterfly! 

We talked more about how the children have ‘transformed’ this year. 

Weekly Letter 6.18.21

For our last week, we will continue to review our year in Pre-K through a series of challenges.

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 6.11

Posted on June 11, 2021

This week we read Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback.  The story talks about how Joseph starts out with an overcoat and ‘transforms’ it into a jacket, vest, etc.  This led us into a conversation about how we already reuse materials.  

We also began to discuss the changes we see around us. The children described some of the changes as plants growing, people growing, clouds changing shapes and colors, and ice melting into water.  In the Art Center, we mixed colors together to see what happened!

The children also learned that they are beginning to read using the sounds and letters they already know to create rhyming word lists like cat, hat, mat, rat …

Weekly Letter 6.11.21

Family Engagement 6.11.21

Next week we will discuss more about what kinds of changes happen in nature.  We will focus on the lifecycle of butterflies and how they go through different stages. 

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 6.4

Posted on June 4, 2021

This week, we read the book When I was Little and discussed the many ways the girl in the book changed as she grew from baby to child. As a class we brainstormed a list of vocabulary words and ideas related to the main idea of the read aloud. We also built text-to-self connections by discussing the ways each of us change as we grow.

At the Math Center children used string measured to their birth length to compare with objects around the classroom.  We really enjoyed seeing how small we were as babies and how tall we are now!    

Weekly Letter 6.4.21

Family Engagement 6.4.21

Next week, we will begin our last unit “Transformation!”
