Another Great Week in Pre-K 2!

Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,

On Monday, Panda got a letter from a friend! His friend Sally Squirrel is coming to visit the classroom on Thursday, March 30th. Next week the children will be building a habitat so Sally feels comfortable during her visit. The children will work through the entire problem solving process to build the habitat. We will be having a Sleep Under Party (a sleepover without the sleeping) to celebrate Sally's visit!

Looking ahead: NO SCHOOL on Tuesday, March 28th for family-teacher conferences. Childcare available during DAY conferences only. Please secure childcare for evening conferences.

Thursday, March 30th: Sally's Sleep Under Party

Children should wear pajamas and bring a stuffed animal and a towel or small blanket to sit on. We will watch a short movie about animals and eat popcorn. Students should still bring a lunch and drink for the day.


Stories: "Good Night Gorilla" by Peggy Rathman, “Curious George VIsits the Zoo” by Margaret and H. A. Rey

Skills: handwriting the letter P, Reading Street Song: “Pip the Parrot” (letter P), finding the letter P

Seeds of STEM Focus: We used the problem solving process to plan our habitat for Sally Squirrel. We did RESEARCH using videos, books and photos to learn about what squirrels need.

Here's what's happening at CENTERS:

Art- painting with foil and color mixing, spring paper and feather art, and Good Night Gorilla Slick Stix at the easel

Blocks-wood blocks, cars, garage, dollhouse and dolls

Dramatic Play- Habitat Building with recycled materials

Writing/Library- books about habitats and animals, Handwriting without Tears materials for practicing the letter P, paper, rainbow paint samples, paper punchers, stamping markers

Playdough: green playdough, rainbow pipe cleaners, erasers, cutters, rollers

Math- weighing station

Science- Build a Zoo with magnatiles, animals, zoo signs, big paper for drawing

Sensory Table- green beads, gold coins, treasure chest, shamrocks

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. See you all on Monday!
