News for 9/10-9/13
I apologize for not getting a newsletter out last week! With the Labor Day weekend and the short school week, time got away from me!
Last week our focus was on community helpers in the spirit of Labor Day. We will again touch on jobs in our community later in the year as 3 days really didn’t do the topic justice! We focused on helpers in our school, police officers, and fire fighters.
Thank you all for your cooperation with transitioning your child into the classroom in the morning! We seem to have worked out all the kinks and everyone for the most part is starting their day off in a positive way!
Overall last week was a great week and we are looking forward to another awesome week of Preschool!
Show and Tell
I know a lot of the students have been asking about show-and-tell. This week will be our first week to kick off show-and-tell! Wednesdays will be our show-and-tell days.
Please encourage your child to bring something related to our theme for the week. For example, this week we are studying shapes. Specifically, circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles. Having them choose something from home that fits one of these will not only tie into our theme but reinforce concepts every week!
Please make sure it can fit inside their backpack and that it is not valuable. If it’s a toy, we will just show the class, not actually play with it. I don’t want to be responsible for any damage J
We are looking forward to our sharing time on Wednesdays!
Theme This Week
Our theme this week is shapes! We will be studying circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles as well as where we find them in every day life!
Skills We Are Working On
A large portion of any early childhood program is focused on learning and improving social skills. We will continue to focus on the following and I encourage you to reinforce at home as well…
- Table manners (please & thank you, excuse me, being respectful of others’ space)
- Sharing (includes sharing toys as well as space and time)
