This week in preschool we talked about rules. We talked about what rules are, what rules we have in our classroom, and what rules we have in different parts of the building. We even came up with some new rules that we put in place for our room!
During small groups this week students worked hard to identify and write the letters in their name, match their symbol and their friends symbols to their names, and played color hunt bingo. Letter recognition is something that we work on all year in preschool and something easy you can work on at home. Start by pointing out letters you see around your house and help your child identify what letter it is. Once your child can identify the letters, you can support them in learning the various sounds that letters make!
Our social emotional curriculum taught students how to appropriately welcome new students to a classroom. We talked about how they felt on their very first day of preschool and how we can help other students to feel comfortable in our classroom. We also talked about our listening rules and practiced them throughout each day.
Packets were sent home last week and I am excited to see how much money preschool can raise! Students who are able to complete certain tasks are awarded with prizes at school 🙂
