PreK 4 and Wraparound Class (Adele Leeds)
We’ll make peacocks, penguins and pizzas as we learn and practice the P sound. Please practice the P sound with your children and challenge them to identify P words.
Using our number line we’ll review numbers1-15 (recognition and order) and use peanuts, popcorn and pretzels for sorting and graphing.
At circle time each morning we review name cards, days of the week, months of the year, the seasons and the day’s weather!
A lesson/activity on positional words will help the children with organizational and placement skills. Please review above/below, in/out, on/off, over/under, between and next to with your children.
To encourage phonological awareness, we’ll have lessons on syllables. The children will hear 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 syllable words and use their hands and connecting cubes to “clap” the syllables. We have fun “clapping” our names (first and last)!!
We’ll have fun playing a rhyming version of I Spy that will stretch the childrens’ listening and observation skills.
Ask your children about our edible octopus! We had so much fun and skill building ( math and language !) and we loved the peppers and hummus.

Prek 2 Class (Chrissy Sunberg)
This week we will create a winter night sky using different shapes and white paint while learning about the letter N. The class will learn and practice writing the letter n while using a paint bag. We will name items that start with the letter N.
The class will review numbers 6-10 by counting and adding items to our cool snowman we plan on creating! We are going to tear pieces of tissue paper and place them on contact paper. Tearing any type of paper will strengthen your child’s fingers and hands, which will prepare them for writing with a pencil. We will name animals that can live in cold climates.
Books we will be reading are:
- Snowman at Night
- Naught Nicky
- The Snowy Day
