V, the letter of the week

Hello All,
Next  week’s letter is V and our weekly theme will be healthy hearts and teeth as we missed most of our lessons due to inclement weather. We will also touch on black history month. We have our in class trip Monday February 10th from 9:15 to 10:15 with Dr. Anthony Fusco. This trip is for all children who attend Little Promises on Monday and if you wish for your child to join you are required to call in advance.

PreK-4 Class

V is this week’s letter and we’ll use valentines and hearts for math and language activities. We’ll do sorting and graphing with heart-shaped marshmallows !

To celebrate President’s day we’ll learn about presidents Washington and Lincoln with stories and project/poems.

For science we’ll make a “volcano” and watch it erupt!!

We’ll make valentine cards and shape collages!

Circle time activities will include a lesson on table manners(making a small booklet of reminder cards)!!!

We’ll also review sharing: when it’s appropriate and when it ‘s not!!!
