Spring is finally here and we are happy to say goodbye to winter. This month we will be learning about spring. We will be looking at the world around us and noticing the changes in the plants, flowers, weather, animals and their babies. It is an exciting time of the year.
In April, the children will also begin to learn about Babies. They will learn some lullabies. Our dramatic play centers will be transformed into baby nurseries, bringing to life what babies need: bottles, blankets, a cozy place to sleep, and most importantly love.
Please bring in a baby photo of your child. The students love looking at their baby photos, and enjoy seeing how much they have grown and changed. At home, you can show your child your baby picture!
In math, we count all the time. You can show your child 3 objects and count them aloud together. Then put the objects in your pocket, a box, or a bag. Put 2 more objects in with the 3 objects, and ask your child, “How many are in my pocket now?” Repeat with other numbers and then with subtraction (taking objects out of the pocket, box or bag).
This month we will also be attending a concert in the Upper School performed by Suzi Shelton and her band. We have loved learning new songs and dancing with her all year long. This will be her final performance for the year! We can’t wait to see her again in Kindergarten.
Please send your child in with a reusable water bottle.
Please dress your child in comfortable clothing.
Please have your child wear sneakers to school every day.
Please make sure to check your child’s folder every night. Thank you!
Pre-K Family Events
Thank you so much for coming to our Transportation Museum. The children loved sharing their vehicles with you. They enjoyed singing and dancing for you as well.
We are excited to announce our upcoming Family Fun Day on April 27, 2017. There will be a performance of Toucan’s Sense of the Rainforest from the Bronx Zoo. A puppet troupe featuring Youcan the Toucan puppet and explorer Jungle Jane is coming to our school. Together, they embark on an adventure that will transform your students into a jungle exploration team. Using their five senses, students experience a unique introduction to the rainforest that features creative drama, storytelling, and puppets. The show will be followed by a fun art activity.
