Play, Learn, & Grow in 4K
- Folders come home every Thursday for our PM class and Friday for our AM class. Make sure you are continuing to check these every weekend as they will contain important information and pieces of work your child has completed through the week!
- A huge adjustment for our 4K friends is using a public restroom independently. So far our little ones have been doing a great job, but it is always helps to continue this independence practice as best you can at home. If able, it may also be beneficial to take your child to the restroom in public bathrooms so they continue to get used to the stall doors, sounds of other people flushing, wiping on their own, etc.
- Please send your child to school in shoes that are safe for running around and being active. Tennis shoes or slip on shoes that will not fall off when your child runs and kicks their feet are best to ensure the safety of our students during outside time and free play in the classroom!
- If your child returns home wearing their extra set of clothes, please be sure to return the extra set to school when able. We want to make sure every student has that extra set just in case, and we know it's easy to set and forget once it comes home!

Children find their name when called up using the rhyme.

When student complete a task, we have been working on independent reading while waiting for their peers to join them.
We have also introduced our new social/emotional curriculum called Second Step. Second Step is a program designed to help students learn social skills and coping strategies. Our focus has been on how to make a friend feel welcome and cared for. Using our puppets, Sammy and Dorothy, students have been practicing greeting a new friend, telling them about school, and inviting friends to play with them if they notice they are feeling sad or if they do not have anyone to place with.
