UNIT 5, Jingle, Poems, and Rhymes focuses on familiar and classical poetry. The children will learn position words such as behind, next, to, between, in front of, and in back of. We will learn to distinguish between word lengths and recognize that capital letters are at the beginning of a sentence. The letters I, i, J, j, and K, k will be introduced and we will identify a sequence of sounds as well as count sentences and words in sentences.

Religion lessons will include themes for Creation. We are thanking God for creating Animals, Birds, Fish, Flowers, Trees, Water, Light and Air!

Our classroom is a Winter Wonderland with snowmen, snow globes, and colorful winter hats with cotton pom poms!

The children made special Valentines for Jesus and even wrote his name on them!

  • Weather permitting, we will have recess. Please send hats and mittens.
  • Everyone should be wearing sneakers all day~velcro only. Boots are not allowed to be worn all day, so if your child wears boots to school, please provide them with sneakers to change into. Thanks so much!
  • Please send a sweatshirt every day with your child. It's a chilly classroom and it's good to have in their backpacks just in case it's needed. Preschool children can also wear a long sleeved t-shirt under the yellow gym shirt to stay cozy.
  • Please work with your child on letter and number recognition as well as name writing, recognizing letters in their name, colors, patterns, rhyming words, fine motor and gross motor skills, shapes, and drawing shapes. We are very busy getting ready for Kindergarten!!
