Welcome to Preschool!Email address as follows:
From the Desk of Ms. Young
Please continue to practice the things listed bellow:The children are learning to write their names (first names by December, first and last beginning in January) and recognize the letters in their name. Feel free to help your child write their name once or twice every evening. Also, we will begin to concentrate on learning letters, you may wish to begin going over the letters at home with your child. Please practice counting from one to thirty with your child. I usually try to have the children counting to 15 independently by December, and the goal is to have them able to count to 30 by the end of the year. Please have your child practice saying their full address (street number, street name, city, and state), full name (first, middle, and last name), home telephone number, birthday (month and day), and age with you nightly. Some ideas:
1. Let your child use crayons or markers to write with.
2. Put a bit of shaving cream on a table and let your child practice writing their name with their finger. When you are finished, you simply wipe of the shaving cream and have a clean table.
3. Use magnetic letters from the dollar store on the refrigerator and have your child arrange the letters in their name in order and tell you the letter as they arrange them.4. Let your child count pennies, bottle tops, or other items around the house.5. Please read to your child every night. Ask questions and pause to talk about the book with your child. This ia a great way to build reading comprehension skills.Ms. Young's Preschool Schedule7:30 - 8:05 - Arrival (Breakfast)8:05 - 8:15 - Bathroom Break / Clea Up Breakfast Things8:15 - 8:35 - Morning Message8:35 - 8:45 - Planning Time8:45 - 9:40 -Work Time9:40 - 9:45 - Clean Up / Recall Time (Recall with Teachers as they are cleaning).9:45 - 10:15 - Itinerant (PE, Art, Library).10:15 - 10:30 - Snack Time / Story Time10:30 - 10:40 - Large Group / Music and Movement Activities10:40- 11:30 - Outside Time / Movement and Music11:30 - 12:00 - Lunch12:00 - 12:20 - Small Group Time12:20- 12:25 - Planning Time12:25 - 12:25 - Work Time12:55 - 1:05- Clean Up Time1:05 - 1:15 - Recall / Bathroom Break1:15- 2:20 - Nap2:20 - 2:30 - Large Group Time2:35 - DismissalPreschool Children Cartoon
