Ms. Leanora's Pre-Kindergarten

We studied the letter "W" and the number 10. Ask your child what is the first number with 2 digits in it and what those digits are.

Picture day was a success. The children were very cooperative and gave great smiles!

We put together a book called "The Garden Party". It was a lot of fun and work for the kids and they were very proud of it. Please find the time to read it with your child.

Earth Day was great. I taught the children about keeping our earth cleas and beautiful. I also taught them about recycling and planting. Please take a look at our earth poster.

Next week the VIP is Abby W! Yea!

Have a great weekend!

Ms. Brittney & Ms. Michelle's Early Learners

This week we learned about the color brown and circles. We also continued talking about flowers.

We colored a worksheet that had different items that were brown.

We made flower masks out of paper plates and they were really cute.

We played in chocolate pudding and practiced making circles. The left overs we got to eat. Yummy!

For Earth Day we colored a picture of earth and talked about what earth is and also about not littering. We talked about what littering is and where trash should go.

*Spring Program is May 20th*

Enjoy your weekend.


Last week we talked about measuring and we finished up our unit on maps. We learned the difference between land and water, north, south east and west, and more!! We finished our map skills books today; Check them out!!

This week we will be learning about money!! We will talk about pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. We will also see a one-dollar bill and a five-dollar bill. We will talk about what they look like, what they are called and what they are worth. We will also work a bit in our handwriting books talking about the days of the week, and the months of the year.
We will also be measuring our plants and graphing their growth.

It is T-Ball time!!!!

I have put a sign up sheet for T-ball next to the sign in/out sheets in our building. I have had parents ask if girls can play; YES!!! All are welcome! We only have five signed up so far, if you are going to be here, please take a look!

Please take some time to look at and fill out the release form that was on your child’s locker this week. Ms. Su would much appreciate it.
Also, Music Time is very important this time of year. We will be practicing all of our songs for program as well as practicing our dance; so being on time for school really helps! Thanks!!

Thank You

Ms. Kate's Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten

Since Pre-school is done with the alphabet and moving on to numbers, the whole class focused on weather for the letter "W" which is the letter Pre-K is working on. We talked about all states of weather, sunny, cloudy, windy, and rainy. We had a good week for all these types of weather. We did a couple of science experiments such as making a cloud in a jar with hot water and ice. We made a rain collector out of a bottle and a funnel. Then we also made our own windmills. I really enjoy seeing the kids get excited.

Thursday was Earth Day and our class decided to start recycling pop cans. On Monday we'll decorate a large box for our cans. We would like to invite everyne to bring cans from home.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the sun!

Today was earth day and the children had a blast learning about ecology and the earth. They painted and planned recycling projects. Ms. Leanora's and Ms. Allison-Lynn's class did similar projects and here are the pictures.

Ms. Kate's Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten

Wow, we had a blast during spring break. We played lots of games that we learned during previous weeks like three blind mice and the famous toilet tag. The kids also make lots of crafts during the week such as our paper garden and they painted butterflies with perfect wings by painting one side and then folding them together. We made 3-D eggs and even Easter baskets for the treats we received today. Oh, and then the Easter Party was tons of fun and everyone had a great day. As always, thanks to those who brought treats and have a wonderful Easter weekend.

Brittney's Early Learner Class

Tomorrow we will be having our Easter Party! We will be starting at about 9:15ish and will be done by lunch. Your child may wear their pajamas, but make sure that they have shoes on. We will be dying eggs and then having an Easter Egg hunt.

Treats are welcomed but please no frosting. We end up with too many frosting treats, so please send things that can be put in their Easter bags.

Since we're on spring Break this week, we just did lots of fun art projects. We will start back up next week learning about orange and diamonds.

Thanks Malia for all the yummy treats and movies during your V.I.P. week.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!

Ms. Brittney
