Ms. Moreno's Monsters
PreK Classroom Newsletter
Hello parents! I am Ms. Moreno and I am very excited for this school year. I was born and raised in Houston and graduated from the University of Houston. I decided to teach PreK because I really enjoy helping students transition into a school enviornment. I incorporate every student's culture into the curriculum so no child feels left out. I am looking forward to a great school year!
How to Contact Me
The best way your child can succeed is if I have constant contact with you, the parents, about how your child is performing in the classroom. I am always checking my email so the best way to contact me if you have any questions or concerns is through there at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have access to a computer or do not have an email you can call or text me at 713-555-1234. You can also set up a face to face meeting with me if you would like. You are the most important part of your child's education so I am always available to answer any questions you may have.
Every classroom needs rules so this what I expect from your children:
- Every student must be respectful and kind to their classmates.
- Every student should come prepared to class and let the teacher know when they need something.
- Every student should pay attention during instruction time and ask questions if they are unsure of something.
- Every student should raise their hand when they have a question.
It's October so that means it is time for our annual Fall Festival! There will be games, food, face painting, and much more. This event is open for all students and student guests. We will have a pumpkin carving contest and one student will win a grand prize. The festival will take place this Friday, October 15, 2016 at 7:00 pm in the back of the school. Hope to see you there!
Online Interactive Resource Review
I have begun to incorporate educational online games for the students in class and there is one game in particular that your children have benefited from greatly. This game is called Wordquake! and you can find it through this link: http://mrnussbaum.com/wordquake-2/. This game allows students identify words with their corresponding picture, while also teaching them common themes within the pictures. This relates to my class teachings when it comes to identifying objects to what they are and how to label and spell. This game consists of two rounds with 15 pictures and 15 words that label each picture in each round. The student must match the word to the corresponding picture in under two minutes in each round. Your child enjoys seeing the pictures and using a computer. He feels as if he is playing a regular computer game but is also remembering the terms that are presented in the game. I would appreciate it if you would allow your children to play this game at home as it would benefit them, thank you.
