January 22-26

January 22 – January 26

Good Afternoon!! I think this will be our first full week of school in long time!!!

Here is what your child will be doing in Pre-K this week!

Math– We will introduce the concept of patterns. We will continue to focus on one to one correspondence by counting objects.  We will introduce the number 13. We will practice writing our numbers 0-13. We will continue working on sorting. We will look at ways to group objects (size, color, and shape). We will practice making shapes with various objects.

Reading– We will introduce the Unit6, The Nightingale.  The letters that will be introduced in this unit are Ll, Mm, and Nn. We are practicing recognizing and hearing the sounds of the letters. I am finishing up Unit 5, Jingles, Poems, and Rhymes in small groups during center time. There have been many children absent the last two weeks, so I will be going back and working with any child that has missed pages in their activity book.

Religion– We will start, Lesson 11: Jesus is God the Son. We start Religion with “The Glory Be”. At snack and lunch, we say the “Grace Before Meals” prayer. Our morning prayer is the “Our Father”.

Science– We will continue our unit on winter.  We will be doing a science project with ice cubes.

Social Studies– We will be looking at where China is on a map and globe since The Nightingale takes place in China.

Reminders:

*Library books are due on Mondays. If your child finishes reading their library book before Monday, they can turn it in earlier.

* Please remember to label your child’s clothing, chap stick, and hand sanitizer.

*Please try to dress your child appropriately for the weather.  We go outside if it is above 32 degrees.  I know it is hard when one day we are in the 60’s and then the next day we are in 30’s.
