February 12– February 16

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

Math– We will be focusing on what comes first, second, and third. We will continue creating AB patterns. We will continue to focus on one to one correspondence by counting objects. We will practice writing our numbers. 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 start with Unit 7, The City Mouse and the Country Mouse.  We will continue to practice letter and sound recognition for letters Aa-Nn. We will introduce the letters Oo, Pp, and Qq.

Religion– We will be talking about Lent. The focus this week will be talking about why we have Lent.  We will be discussing Ash Wednesday and why we have ashes put on our foreheads.  Your child will be introduced to the Stations of the Cross.  We will go for a visit over to the church to see where the Stations are hanging in the church.

Science– We will continue our unit on winter.

Social Studies– We will be discussing what the difference is between the city and the country.  This goes along with our unit in reading.
