Good afternoon!

It was so great to see you all during parent/teacher conferences last week. Please remember that if you have any further questions or thoughts, don’t hesitate to contact me.

This has been a fun filled week for us in Pre K. On Monday we had our local firefighters come in to teach us all about how to Stop, Drop and Roll, how to dial 911, how to exit a building and the importance of having two ways out as well has having a meeting place once you are safely out. Pre K was very attentive and really took a lot of information in. I am sure they told you all about it at home ☺

I love teaching children about books! Last week we listened to Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood. This week we enjoyed listening to Jack and the Beanstalk and TheThree Little Pigs. While reading these books we talked about stories that start “Once upon a time…” and how could they really happen, and should you do what the main character does in them? We also talked about the parts of the book, including introducing the title. Every person has a name, and so does every book and it is called the title.

Here is a list of some other books we have enjoyed this week:

My Fire Engine

Fire Engines

I’m Going to be a Fire Fighter

Dot the Fire Dog

As you may have noticed, we have been working on the letter T this week. While we work on a letter a week, we review previous letters and discuss all the letters during our morning meeting and as they appear naturally in conversations or books.

For math we have been practicing our counting skills but also we have been using the IXL math program. IXL is an individual math program that the children can use independently to work on various math skills such as counting and shapes and so much more. I will be sending home your child’s user name (in blue) and password (in purple) so you can use this program at home if you would like. Just go to IXL.com and log on.

Up Coming Dates:

November 10 Thanksgiving dinner

November 11 Veteran’s Day

November 17 School Spirit day

November 20 End of Trimester

November 23 Thanksgiving break

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Carrier

Pre K and Title 1 Teacher
