December 4th Newsletter

Dear Pre K Family,

As the Holidays draw near you may be doing a lot of baking. If you have the patience, let your child help you out in the kitchen. It is a great science, math and language experience for them.

Speaking of holidays, our holiday concert is coming up very soon-December 9th at 6pm. The Pre K students just need to dress in their holiday best! They will be singing two songs for you and do not need to wear any particular style of clothing. It should be a wonderful time.

This week has been SO busy! I have been introducing a couple of new initiatives that have taken my thoughts away from other things. I am sorry that I have forgotten to fill out and send home the behavior charts! I will get right back to that. One of the new things that I have been doing in here is teaching the letters over again using the Handwriting without Tears method. I recently went to a workshop in Boston with a few teachers from Beech Hill to learn about this and it is amazing! The children love it and so do I. The other new thing I have been doing in here is Bucket Filling. As a school we have been talking about how we can fill up other’s buckets with good feelings; how to be a bucket filler and not a bucket dipper.

Centers have been going well! Thanks to the Cook family for all the shaving cream. We have already gone through a whole can. We have been practicing our small motor skills and number making skills during these times, not to mention our cooperation skills!

Here are a few of the books we have enjoyed listening to this week:

Five Little Christmas Trees

If You Take a Mouse To the Movies

Froggy’s Best Christmas

Merry Christmas Big Hungry Bear
