Preschool press Oct. 7th, 2019

Dear Families,

We had another successful week in Preschool! Lots of playing and learning!

We look forward to our Nature Walk on Monday, October 14th in the neighborhood! Permission slips have gone home. Please return these no later than Wednesday, October 9th. Children will not be able to walk without a slip.  We will complete a nature craft following the walk. Remember to dress according to the weather. We will go rain or shine! J

As a general reminder, please practice sounds a, b, and c, with your children. Make it fun! Look for objects that begin with a certain sound, or play a game of “I spy.” Count how many words you come up with. Practice counting too!

 Parent-Teacher Conferences

We are looking forward to the Parent Teacher Conferences on Oct 28th and November 8th. More information on signing up will follow soon. Getting to know you helps us know your child better! We want all to sign up. More information will follow soon.

 Language

This week we will learn the sound “Dd” and will make a sound craft.

We practice making the Sign of the Cross everyday when we say our prayer before snack. Help your child practice at home. The prayer is as follows:

In the name of the Father

And of the Son

And of the Holy Spirit
