Theme: Let’s Share. Students have been earning quite a lot of fillers for our classroom kindness bucket by sharing, helping one another and by making other’s days even more happy.

If your child is talking about ‘Captain Dory’, that is our class pet.  The veterinarian job in the class will feed him daily.

Letter of the week: B- bubble painting on a letter ‘B’, writing the letter B with ‘Handwriting without Tears’ and other sources, brain storming words that start with the letter ‘B’ and many activities using the literature below. These activities will focus on words that start with ‘B’, reinforce comprehension and sequencing skills.  Sign language: review ‘A’ and introduce ‘B.’


  • Goldilocks and the Three Bears
  • We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
  • Owl Babies
  • Magic School Bus: ‘A Book about Germs’

Math: categorizing objects through a variety of ways, using Teddy Bear Counters to measure things around the classroom, writing number 2 and reviewing shapes (recognizing and writing). Litererature will be incorporated into math lessons (sorting/classifying with books like Goldilocks and the Three Bears

We continue daily going over proper handwashing and ways not to spread germs.

PreK 4  (Adele Leeds)

We’ll review letter A, practice writing uppercase and lowercase As and make applesauce ( measuring and mixing ingredients).

Ask your child to recite our apple poem:

Way up high in the apple tree

Five red apples smiled at me.

I shook that tree as hard as I could

Down came an apple,

Mmmmm, it was good!!

We’ll have a simple science lesson on light–its sources, why we need it and how we use it!

I’ll introduce the letter B and we’ll make  buzzing Bs and beautiful B birds!

We’ll have a teddy bear party ( counting, sorting and color identification ).

We’ll read Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey and Little Miss Bossy by Roger Hargreaves.

At circle time we talk about the weather, days of the week and months of the year. We check our calendar each day, review numbers 1-10, colors and shapes.

We use our name cards and the children are recognizing their own names and the names of their friends!

Prek 3 ( Michele Zinicola )

What an exciting first week at school!  We had fun getting to know each other’s names and learning about the routines of our day!

The students have been enjoying outside play on the playground equipment as well as the sandbox, which is always so much fun!

We have learned a new song and finger play – “Where Is Thumbkin?”

This week we will begin the letter B

We will continue to practice learning the letter A and have fun with our letter A projects!

We will continue working on calendar skills, colors, taking turns, and listening skills.

Also, our lessons and activities will still be focused on learning classroom procedures.

I am so proud and happy on how all the Pre-K 3 students transitioned – they are wonderful!!!  We are having a fun time in school!  Everyone is wearing their smile!
