Pre-K

September 13, 2021

What a wonderful start to our Pre-K year! The children are already working hard to become familiar with our classroom routines and rules. They are kind, respectful, and all around wonderful! ūüôā

Classroom Activities: 

Handwriting Without Tears (HWT)

This week, we will begin our official letter study. We will begin with the letters F and E. We will emphasize correct letter formation and proper pencil grip. (There is a short pencil grip video posted on Google Classroom.)  We will be learning that all letters begin at the top. You will find a letter formation chart coming home with your child on Monday. I recommend that you post this in a spot where your child can easily refer to it. 

We are also working on name writing.  Please use the letter formation chart to guide you as you assist your child at home.  As I said above, we will be focusing on starting our letters at the top.

Math: Our first several math lessons will focus on attributes.  Last week, we reviewed colors and described objects with a focus on color.  This week, we will work on shape identification.  

Science:  We will review and practice composting and recycling. 

Second Step: The concept introduced this week is that following Listening Rules helps everyone learn. 

Library and Art:  This week, we will have our first visits from our library teacher and our art teacher. 

Picture Day: As you know, Individual Picture Day is this Tuesday, 9/14.  We will walk over to the church for our photos shortly after arrival at school.   Parents have the ability to preorder photos by visiting the Holy Rosary Yuen Lui page through Tuesday, September 21. After this date, photos will be processed for printing. Photos will be shipped to the school for distribution. If you choose to order at a later date, there is an additional cost to cover individualized printing, packaging, and shipping.

T-Shirt Orders:  Due on Friday, 9/17
