What a great week! We learned so much this week. In our Creative Curriculum we finished our talking about what we do if we are scared or sad at school. You can help students remember what to do by reminding them that teachers are there to help them. We started talking about what our rules we have in our classroom. We covered what it looks like to be safe respectful and responsible. If you would like to learn more about our curriculum please take a look at the curriculum tab and click on the Preschool Curriculum Information Video to hear all about what we will be learning about this year. This will take the place of Pyrtle’s Curriculum Night this year.
In Second Steps this week we learned how to welcome people and how to use the listening rules. With this curriculum there are parent letters that come with each lesson. We will post these letters each week so that you can continue to help your student with these skills at home. Please let us know if you have any questions about how to use these, the links are below for the first 2 lessons and and into on how to use them.
In one our small groups we worked on matching our names and friends names to their pictures and symbols (Losey-Ladybug). In another small group this week, students sequenced the letters in their names with their name puzzles. The last small group had students finding toys in the classroom that were the same color. These small groups helped students learn more about the classroom and their friends in the classroom.
We are excited to see you all in the next few weeks during our home visits. If you have not signed up for a visit time, please do so soon. As we discussed during our initial home visit, we will be completing a social emotional questionnaire and doing a fun activity with you and your child based on their development.
Check out some more pictures on the photos page.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thanks for all you do!
Mrs. Losey and Ms. Jamie
