Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Holy Family Four Year Old Pre–Kindergarten Program for the 2018-2019 school year.  I am very excited to be your child’s teacher and look forward to a rewarding school year for your child!  My objectives this year are to help prepare your child for kindergarten emotionally, socially, and academically in a positive and nurturing environment following the examples of Jesus’ love.

Academically we will focus on some of the following topics throughout the year:     

  • Listening skills
  • Shape, color, and number recognition (0 to 20)
  • Spelling and printing names
  • Recognition of capital and lower case letters
  • Phonics- Rhyming, Beginning Letter Sounds
  • Patterns and sequencing
  • Religious Instruction- "Stories of God's Love"
  • Problem solving
  • Math, Science, Technology, and Social Studies Enrichment
  • Development of fine motor skills through the use of scissors and other activities

For curriculum enrichment I will be using the Scholastic News Magazine, “My Big World,” designed for Pre-K students throughout the year. This is a very educational magazine that supports the NY State Common Core and our curriculum that motivates students to develop core skills.  

I look forward to working with your child and am excited to be a part of their growth and development. I formerly taught second grade for 12 years at Bishop’s Academy at St. Charles. I am very happy to be part of the Holy Family faculty and community now for 8 years. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Syracuse University, Permanent Teaching Certification from Oswego College and my Master’s Degree in Education from Le Moyne College. With your support, I am sure we can make this year full of fun, learning, and personal growth for your child!

Mrs. Kelly Lambert is our classroom teaching assistant and we are looking forward to a socially and educationally productive year while engaging in fun activities with the class. If you have any questions or concerns please email me.

Thank you,
Mrs. Kinsley
