Week 22

Dear PreK Families,

What a fun, busy week we’ve had after February break.  It was so exciting to hear what special things everyone did over vacation.  We celebrated our week by talking about Dr. Seuss and reading LOTS of books by him. Some of our favorites were; The Cat in the Hat, Bartholomew and the Oobleck, Yertle the Turtle, Green Eggs and Ham, and Ten Apples Up on Top! 

Another BIG event in our class on Thursday was celebrating the 100th day of school!!! It is so hard for us teachers to believe we’ve already been with your children for 100 days. These past 100 days have brought us so much joy.  Seeing new and old friendships forming, and learning so many interesting concepts, we have greatly enjoyed every minute of it.  A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Claire’s mom, Carolyn, for providing the delicious pizza for our 100th-day party.  Also thank you to all the families who brought in snack items for our math activity.

This week also brought us 2 birthday celebrations!  Jacob R. turned 5 on Monday and we were excited to welcome his dad, James, in to read us some wonderful books. We also celebrated Claire’s 5th birthday on Friday (whose birthday is Saturday).  Thank you also to both Jacob R. and Claire’s families for bringing in yummy birthday treats for the class. 

To finish off our amazing week, we enjoyed Pippa’s Me Week and learned so much about her! We loved her poster and all the pictures she shared with us.  On Tuesday Pippa’s whole family came in to read some special books. Thanks to her mom Libby, dad Trip, and her brother Clay for making her Me Week extra special.

Other highlights this week:

  • Cat in the Hat art project
  • Making turtles for Yertle the Turtle
  • We made Oobleck!!! (Oobleck is like slime-only ingredients are corn starch, water, and food coloring. So much fun!!)
  • 100th-day projects: gumball machine-BINGO dobbers, 100th-day hats, snack activity counting 10 different snack items in groups of 10
  • Music with Miss Elaine

We are looking forward to starting March in PreK and hopefully getting some warmer weather.  Be on the lookout in the coming week for a signup genius regarding conference sign-up.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Miss Jen, Miss Dana, and Miss Karen
