Morning Pre-K News!

February 6th – 10th, 2017

Hello Preschool families!

Happy Monday. Hope you all enjoyed a restful, healthy weekend!

This entire month we recognize men and women, who have stood bravely among diversity, fought valiantly for social justice, honored human rights for all people, and used their talents and gifts to make the world a better place. We will celebrate Black History month this week and next, by learning about whom some of these individuals were and their accomplishments.

This will provide an opportunity to do several lessons on peace and conflict resolution. We will create a “Peace Corner” in our class and craft “Wings of Peace.”

Several famous African-American’s were inventors. For our science project your children will be building their own inventions using recyclable materials and sharing them with the class.

The letter this week is O. Math centers will include sorting and counting hearts, and geometric shapes.

As is often the case, my enthusiasm takes over the reality of what we are sometimes able to accomplish in morning care! Please accept my apology. We will continue learning next week what we can’t finish in this one!

This newsletter will be posted on the Extended Day Care page, along with some photos of your children busy at work during our science and engineering projects. Check it out!

Have a wonderful week. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
