Pre-K Newsletter - October 2018
SAVE THE DATE! Our Pre-K Stepping Up Celebration will be on Monday, June 17, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. All families are invited into our classrooms for our celebration. The children will sing and dance as part of the end of the year celebration. It is important that each child have a family member present.
On Friday, May 3, 2019 we would like to cordially invite you to Munchkins for Mom. Our students would like to host a breakfast to thank their mothers, or grandmothers, or aunts for always supporting them by hosting a breakfast just for them! Munchkins and juice/coffee will be served for all to enjoy!
We are excited to announce our upcoming Family Fun Day on Thursday, May 16, 2019. Pre-K parents and Pre-K children are invited to come to school to see a performance by Suzi Shelton! Ms. Suzi is an award-winning singer and songwriter. She performs catchy and meaningful music for children. Your children already know and love many of her songs!
The children are so excited about our baby unit. They love looking at their baby photos. They enjoy discussing how much they have changed since they were babies, (Not able to walk, no teeth, drinking from bottles, etc.). Children can begin to understand how they have changed over time. Ask your child about things that they can do now (write their name, put on their shoes, speak, etc.) Could they do these same things when they were babies? Why or why not?
We hope you are continuing to use your Cool Culture pass! We love hearing about all the museums that you have visited with your family already this year! As the weather gets better it’s an even better time to use your Cool Culture pass to start visiting the zoos!
We hope you have been reading the lending library books with your child every night. This will help to prepare them for Kindergarten.
In math, we will continue to practice counting from 1-20. At home, you can pretend that you are going on a rocket ship ride and count from backwards from 10-0. If your child has mastered that skill, try counting backwards from 20-0.
Cool Culture Passes
We are so excited to offer Cool Culture passes to all families with children in PS 230's PreK! You will have access to 90 of NYC’s best-loved museums, gardens, zoos and historic houses. We can't wait to hear about all the fun things your child do when you use the Cool Culture Pass.

If you did not receive a pass, lost your pass or need to make a correction on your family's name, please contact your Cool Cultural Liaison - Ms. Jill Reinier, Parent Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PreK Teddy Bears
Pre-K has been very excited about the teddy bears that have joined our Pre-K classes. Each bear chose a pre-k student to be a special friend.
We spent a lot of time preparing for the bears by discussing ways for our bears to feel safe and comfortable in school. The children said that being kind, using inside voices and being good listeners would make the bears feel safe. Your child has named their bear and is in the process of creating a home for them.
Ask your child about their bear. What is his/her name? How old is your bear? What are their likes? Dislikes? What is your bear afraid of? The bears will remain in the classroom until June, and then your child will bring it home to stay.
