The Pre-K class should be proud of their accomplishments this year. They worked hard to achieve the goals we set for them during the last nine months. Congratulations - Aria, Jack S., Jack G., Liam, Sophia, and William!!
We completed the curriculum and reviewed a lot of material in May and June:
Vocabulary: We finished the chapters School and Animals. Students learn the spelling, pronunciation, and definition of words.
Writing: The students used their books to write letters, numbers, words, sentences, punctuation marks, and paragraphs. They've come a long way since September.
Math: We completed our I Know My Numbers #9 and #10 booklets. We continued our chapter - Data Representation and Probability.
Children make an analyze pictographs. They predict the likelihood of an outcome while discussing real world events. We started the chapter Measurement and Time. Students learn to sequence events in time. They compare weight of objects using heavy and light. Children compare spaces using narrow and wide. They compare the capacity of containers using holds more and holds less.
Language and Literacy: We completed the chapter - Writing. Children use scribbles, pictures, and letters to communicate an idea. They choose topics and generate ideas about which to write. Students also continued working in and finished their My Book. Then, we reviewed onset and rimes of words, compound words, syllables, rhyming words, and matched uppercase and lowercase letters.
PATHS: With the help of the PATHS animals, we discussed what makes us feel comfortable and uncomfortable. We also talked about feeling excited and the things that make us feel that way.
Chapel: The Pre-K students will miss meeting with Father Rick on Wednesdays to listen to a bible story, sing songs, and pray.
Mother's Day Tea was a very special day for everyone. Our field trip to the library was lots of fun - thank you Miss Risa!!
It is bittersweet to say goodbye to the students who are off to Kindergarten. You will always have a special place in our hearts. We wish you much success and happiness.
