Lehman, Pre-K

Off to a great start!

We've been working on classroom routines. We are learning to work together and follow directions. Please continue to support your child's success by:


  • promoting regular attendance
  • cleaning folder and backpack daily
  • returning workstation materials if found in your child's backpack
  • checking behavior calendar and discuss any notes regarding progress
  • providing comfortable and safe clothing that is appropriate for the weather and easy to manage
  • assuring that shoe laces are secured before school
  • reading together at least 20 minutes daily
  • playing games together often

Pre-K Goals

Social Growth:

Emotional Literacy-


  1. We are learning to identify our emotions with words like, "I feel mad."
  2. We are learning to use problem solving skills such as taking turns, ignoring bad behavior, and asking a teacher for help.
  3. We are learning to respond when others speak. We need to respond with words or hand gestures.
  4. We are learning to respect people. We will follow directions and class rules.
  5. We are learning to respect property. We use materials as directed and we do not take classroom materials home.
