What Are We Learning???

We will review the numbers 1-14. So far we have learned about L, F, E, H, T, U, C, O, Q, S and I. We are going to review those and work more on writing again this week.


This week we will talk about the story of the Gingerbread Man. We will read different versions and compare and contrast them as well as retell them. We will do some math activities such as graphing and measuring with gingerbread cookies. On Thursday we will make our gingerbread cookies (made with sugar cookie dough) for decorating at our party on Friday. Please sign up below so we have enough supplies for everyone.


We are continuing our superfriend "high fives" or stars. Our morning class needs 8 more to earn their 2nd party and the afternoon needs 4 more to earn their 3rd party. It is awesome to see how your kids are being respectful, responsible and safe at home. If you need more "high fives" or stars before break let me know. If you dont have one please write it on anything - the kids are so proud when they bring them back!!


Speech-Language Group- Dec 14-18, 2015

We will follow directions by giving a bell to a named peer and then placing our pictures in a container. We will follow directions putting one, two, or three named objects in a stocking and then recall what items were put inside the stocking. We will do the rhyme/fingerplay "Two Little Bells".



Two Little Bells

Two little bells on the big green tree,

(use pointer fingers to act out rhyme as indicated)

Ringing for you and ringing for me.

One rings high, one rings low.

One rings fast, one rings slow.

Two little bells on the big green tree,

Ringing for you and ringing for me.




Other info...

We can still use toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes - the kids have enjoyed making items out of these!

A Note From Kristy....

Dear Parents: If you have a child who is old enough to attend Kindergarten this next year (they need to be 5 on or before July 31), you will need to complete online enrollment for Kindergarten. Please feel free to do this as soon as possible, as that will allow the District to begin to get a count of the children who will be in Kindergarten in the Fall.

How Do You Enroll?

· All students must be enrolled online.

· Please go to www.plcschools.org

· Click on “Parents” at top right

· On Left side, click on “Enrolling in PLC Schools”

· Then follow Online Enrollment instructions

Kindergarten Round Up Dates will be available after we return from Break. You will be asked to provide current proof of residency at Round Up. Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions! Have a restful break and enjoy your family!

Dear Parents: We are quickly approaching the end of our first Semester of preschool! If you have a child who will be transitioning to Kindergarten and you are considering any attendance options other than your child’s neighborhood school, it is important that you learn about transfer options. There are specific deadlines for applying for special attendance, and I wanted to share a resource with you, should you desire more information. Go to our District website (www.plcschools.org) and click on the “Parents” button at the top of the screen. Next, click on “Changing a Child’s School or District” on the left-hand side of the screen. You will now see all of the information regarding transfer options. Please note: the preschool team is not involved in the special attendance process. You will need to contact Central Office as indicated on the website should you have further questions. We simply want to make you aware of the deadlines that will quickly approach after we return from Winter Break and provide the website information should you have an interest in this topic.

I hope you and your family have a restful and relaxing Winter Break! We look forward to seeing our preschoolers in 2016! As always, please feel free to contact me with questions regarding early childhood. Sincerely, Kristy Feden, Supervisor of Early Childhood (kfeden@paplv.org/402-514-3242)
