Mrs. Ray's Pre-K Weekly Newsletter

Week 3: September 14 - 18

Announcements

Thank you so much for helping us learn about the Letter C and the Color Yellow this week! These little connections between home and school are a HUGE impact in your little's learning!


We will be talking about Ways to Get Around this next week as an extension to our Community Helpers unit. On WEDNESDAY we will sort their favorite way to get around (ie: car, truck, plane, bicycle, bus, etc.). Please send with your child either a toy version or picture of their favorite form of transportation (doesn't have to necessarily be their daily transportation...just their favorite). These items WILL be sent back home at the end of the week.

Dip N' Dots

Dip N' Dots will now be served to Pre-K students every Wednesday. It is an additional $2.50 if you choose for child to eat them. This fee can either be taken from their lunch account using their lunch card or you can send the money in your child's folder by Wednesday morning! Please include in their folder what flavor they would like:

Cookie N' Cream

Chocolate & Vanilla

Cookie Dough

Red Berry Sherbet

Homework

We have been introduced to the ABAB Pattern in Math. Please have your child build different ABAB Patterns using both the cut/glue sheet and the counters I've included. You can keep the counters at home as a math tool to use with your child this year. Remember, homework is a great connection tool between home and school, but is totally optional! If they bring the sheet back completed they will receive a sticker for their personal sticker book.
