Welcome to Pre-K 3!

As we begin an exciting new school year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our Pre-K 3 students and families.

I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year.  I look forward to working together and creating a positive, welcoming school environment for my students and help them develop their love for learning!

So many great things will happen this year in our class!  Each month our fun-filled activities will include letters, numbers, stories, fine/gross motor skills, shapes, colors, art projects, name recognition, weather, calendar skills, and lots more!

The first week of school we will work on learning each other’s names with oral language development and taking turns, with getting to know activities.

They will include:

  • That’s My Name!
  • Where’s My Name?
  • Read It and Write It in Pasta!

This week’s letter is the letter A

We will work on letter recognition and how to form the letter A,

recognize the parts of an apple, and make a tissue paper apple.

Also, our lessons and activities will be focused on learning our rules and classroom procedures, but having fun at the same time.

Once again, WELCOME to PRE – K 3 , and don’t forget to wear your smile to school!
