Prek 4.2

Nov 30th - Dec . 4th

Dear Pre-K parents,

This week we continued our discussion on wheels and moved on to transportation. We talked about how people move from one place to another and the different forms of transportation they can use. We also talked about how some forms of transportation move things/people faster than others.

During small groups, we worked with numbers playing card games and using manipulatives. This week, we also practiced rhyme playing the "Thumbs up" rhyming game and exploring with materials to make wheels turn. We had our own car wash where we cleaned our foam filled vehicles in a big tub of water. We also used the foam to make tracks and letters in our Discovery center. Drawing, coloring and cutting was also part of this week's practicing skills. We are trying to add more realistic details to our drawings.

We would like to thank all of our parents for their kind wishes and beautiful gifts presented to us, on teacher appreciation day. Also, thanks to those parents who managed to make some time to help our kids chose their holiday shopping gifts at the Holiday Shop.

This short video is quite interesting and I helps us understand the process of learning to read and write at young ages. Small ideas that make a big difference in our home and school.
