OUR CURRENT STUDY IS...

It is called "Beginning the Year." We have been working on learning our friend's names, our classroom rules and routines, and about our environment here at school. The teachers have been spending time in each area of our classroom, talking about the materials and suppiles availiable at choice time.


We have also been discussing families and family structure. The kids sure like talking about special people in their lives.

BOOKS WE READ

Charlie Anderson

A World of Families

Peeny Butter Fudge


All of these books talk about the differences and similiarities between families.

SMALL GROUP ACTIVITIES

These "games" are all little movement/literacy activities.

EXTRA INFORMATION

We would like to invite you in to be a Mystery Reader! If you would like to participate at any time, please contact your classroom teacher. We prefer to have readers come at 8:30, 10:30, 12:30 or 2:30. You job would be to pick a favorite story you would like to read, don't tell your child, and come on in and read to us! We will give clues to the kids and have them guess who our reader is. Grandparents, other relatives, or family friends are always welcome as well.


Remember: If the weather ever gets cooler...NAMES ON ALL NEW JACKETS!!!


We had "visitors" in our room this week. We all rotated classrooms to make sure the kids get to know our entire PreK staff. They had questions ready for each one of us!!
