Wolcott's What's Up

A God's Gifts PreKindergarten Classroom Update 9.18.2016

Fun, Feelings, and Friendship

Dear Parents-

We had an another great week in our PreK classroom!


As part of calendar time daily, children try and spell their own names. As we continue to work on this at school over the next months, it would be helpful if you would work with your child on learning to spell his/her own name at home.


A couple of specific highlights:


  • We spent time talking about feelings. The kids were super cute using our class "feeling sticks"
  • We finished our "Creation" books. Hopefully you enjoyed reading those!



Thanks for letting me spend another week with your children. Mrs. Figola and I are really loving getting to know them all!

Books We Read This Week

  • My Feelings
  • I Like Me
  • Too Close Friends

Letter of the Week

This week will begin our letter of the week. Our letter this coming week will be the letter "Ss". Each week we will learn a letter song, practice writing the letter and also talk about words that start with that letter as part of our Jolly Phonics program.

On Thursday of every week, each child will need to bring in an item that begins with our letter.

Math

In math this week we continued to focus on patterns. Specifically, we have been learning about and creating AB patterns. Students created friendship bracelets this week using this AB pattern format. They also worked daily in centers on practicing this key skill.


We also spent time doing a lego color sort. Aiden and Addy loved this activity!
