Welcome to Mrs. Williams' Class 


I am so excited to welcome your child to PreK! This will be a year full of fun and exciting activities that will help prepare your child for Kindergarten and the rest of their school years!

Below are some basic skills we work on throughout the school year in preparation for Kindergarten. Please help reinforce these skills by reviewing them at home with your child.

Skills to reinforce at home: 

* write name (capitalizing the first letter and the remaining lower case)
* oral counting to 30
* Identifying capital and lowercase letters
* know all letter sounds
* vowels make two sounds (short and long) Students should know both.
* writing ABCs
* writing numbers to 10
* counting objects to 10 ( one to one)
* numeral  order 1-10
* hearing the beginning sound in words
* identify rhyming words 

Please look at your child's folder each day for important notes, behavior chart, and daily papers. This is a great daily communication tool for us.  Feel free to write notes to me as needed and i will do the same.  Keeping in communication with you is so important! Please initial your child's folder daily.

PreK is your child's introduction to school.  Our goal is for your child to learn appropriate social skills so they can function independently and feel confident in their ability to navigate their school world.

This includes:
* using words to communicate their needs
* using tools to self-regulate emotions
* practicing taking turns
* using safe hands and safe feet
* playing appropriately with others
* implementing personal care needs (putting on jackets, unzipping backpacks, restroom independently)
