Welcoming 2023 in Pre-K 2!

Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,


Happy New Year! I can't believe 2023 is already here. I hope that you all had a wonderful winter break. We got right back to work at school this week. The children did a wonderful job remembering the rules and routines of our classroom. This month, we will be focusing on our second unit in the Seeds of STEM science curriculum: Ice and Water

MORNING MEETING will look a little different moving forward. The children are able to attend for a longer period of time, so I will be teaching specific literacy, math, science and social/emotional skills during our meeting. THANK YOU for making an effort to get your children to school on time. I truly appreciate it!


This week at MORNING MEETING:

Stories: "Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice" by Steve Metzger, "Plenty of Penguins" by Sonia W. Black
