Dear Pre-K Families,
We had a busy week learning all about the letter “Aa”. We discussed the sound the letter makes and thought of all kinds of words that begin with the letter “Aa”. Your children made an “Al the Alligator” puppet. We also began “Show and Tell” this week. The boys and girls really enjoyed coming up to show their special “Aa” show and tell. They loved talking about it, and answering questions from their peers!
Our class tasted 3 different types of apples and we graphed each child’s favorite taste and color. After completing our chart, we discovered by counting, that red apples were our class favorite. As we cut open each apple, the children saw that a star is inside of every apple with seeds inside of the star. After this, we sliced and peeled 10 apples, added water, sugar, and cinnamon to make applesauce. Our class loved doing this activity together. The best part was eating it afterwards. We also read a book about apples. The girls and boys learned how apples grow and all about the job of a farmer. They also learned what an apple orchard is. Your children are excited to go apple picking!
We decorated the door to our classroom by painting a beautiful fall tree; it was painted by everyone in our class. Apples and leaves were also painted and they are hanging on our tree. Your children are very proud of their artwork!
We have begun writing in our journals. The sight word for the week is the word “at”. We made the “at family” and came up with many rhyming words just by putting a letter in front of the word “at”. Your children were so proud of themselves as they all helped to read the word family.
We are very proud of your children for all of their hard work they are exhibiting, both in school and at home. We are happy to see their homework that is coming in each day. A few reminders about their homework: 1. Please make sure to use pencil, unless the directions specify to “color”. 2. Please make sure when writing their name, as well as any words, to use an uppercase letter for the first letter of their name and lowercase letters for the remaining letters. Thank you for all of your support!!!
Next week is a short week so we will be starting the letter “Bb” on Wednesday when we come back to school. We will continue the letter “Bb” the following week as well because that is also a short week (we have no school on October 3, 4, 10, and 12th). Therefore, the homework can be done over the next two weeks.
We would like to wish everyone a happy, fun, and long fall weekend. We will see everyone back at school next Wednesday.
Miss Lori and Miss Kristine
P.S. ~ The Pre-K classes will be going to Hicks on October 19th! Hooray!!! More Fall fun!
Permission slips will be coming home next week!
