PK 4.4 Newsletter My Family!
Ms. Geneva & Ms. Rebekka
Dear PK 4.4 Familiy!
This week we talked about our family, getting to know about the members in them, recognizing their own family and families around the world. We read Goldilocks and the Three Bears in many different versions of it, even one about "Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs" !!
Prek 4 teachers dramatized Goldilocks for our pk4 students and students were also acting out Goldilocks in the classroom. We also read and discussed the stories. In math, we are still working on number recognition, number names, amounts, and their relation.
We will start our new unit on CLOTHES! We think it will make an interesting study.
I need your help to gather a collection of clothes to investigate. We need clothes of all sizes, types, colors, and fabrics. Please label the clothes with your name so we can return them to you at the end of our study. Here is a list of suggestions, but may also send in clothes that are not on the list.
jackets, coats, parkas, windbreakers, raincoats, ponchos, suit coats, blazers, vests, sweaters, sweatshirts, t-shirts, jeans, skirts, gloves, scarves, bandanas, socks, tights, trousers, dresses, bowties, belts, sashes, pajamas, vests etc.
We promise to take good care of them (buttons are welcome as well) !!
As we study clothes,we will learn concepts and skills in literacy, math, science, social studIes , and the arts. We'll use thinking skills to investigate, ask questions, solve problems, make predictions, and test our ideas.
Books of the week
- Yearbook pictures will be taken Sept. 29.
- Please send pieces of cloth, so we can work with different textures and even design our own piece of cloth.
