The children are so excited about our new unit called Transformation. We are learning how things change over time. You can talk to your child about what changes around them. Children might notice that trees change throughout the seasons, or how their neighborhood changes with the building of a new store. One way we are studying transformation in our classroom is through metamorphosis. All of our classrooms received caterpillars. We are observing the life cycle of a butterfly. It is a magical time!
This is also the time to talk to your child about how they have grown and changed over the course of the year. We have been preparing our students for the transition from Pre-K to Kindergarten. We have been reading books, singing songs and we will be visiting kindergarten classrooms. You can talk to your child about their feelings about leaving Pre-K. You can reassure them that they are ready for this big change.
In math, we are reviewing all things we have learned throughout the year. For example, identifying shapes, patterns, counting from 1-20, and writing numbers 1-5.
We want to thank you for all that you have done throughout the year. Your continued support and involvement has made a positive impact on your child’s education.
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!
