 Dear Parents:


We are off to a great start this year.  We are making new friends and learning names.  We are discovering new toys and exploring the learning centers.  We are learning to fine the office, cafeteria, bathroom, library, music room and gymnasium.


We are learning to follow the routines of the classroom, respond to teacher's request and to LINE UP.  We need to be able to LINE UP so we can go to places such as the cafeteria for snacks, to the gymnasium for P.E. class, to the Library for library class and to go outside for RECESS!


Activities and projects we have been doing;

Games and activities to learn each others names.  We are establishing yes/no responses, learning the names of all the toys, centers and equipment in our room.  We are learning to make verbal choices for toys and snacks. We are pointing to and naming parts of the body and discussing skin color, eye color and hair color.


We have several songs and rhymes we have been learning that help us learn new concepts, imitation skills and building our vocabularies.  Every week we will be adding new songs and rhymes.


The Preschool curriculum is designed to meet  the developmental needs of each child.  This program embraces the concept of learning language and basic skills in the natural environment with parents and teachers contributing equally.  Within this program we see young children begin to communicate and develop relationships.  We set the foundation for the emergence of basic skills necessary for language, problem solving, reading and math development.  Our goal is to help each child reach their potential as life-long learners and successful, confident communicators.


We know that children of this age learn best through their own play.  Play is the natural setting for language and concept development.  We focus on each individual child's needs and interest in program planning.  We understand that each child develops skills at his/her own individual pace.


The Preschool program provides a blend of music, movement, art, drama, motor activities, language enrichment and concept development.


As you can see, we have been very busy.  I will keep you informed about our schedule changes, and activities and our accomplishments in Pre-School.  Please feel free to contact me if you have concerns or questions.  My e-mail address is headrickd@usd226.org, and phone number is 620-873-2671.
