Notes from the Preschool Room

I hope that you had a very safe and happy holiday! December was a very busy month for our class. The children worked hard all month long creating many fun holiday crafts and projects. Our Winter Wonderland night and class party were also a huge success. Thank you to all who helped out by joining us and sending in a treat!

Now that the children have learned the classroom routine, we will begin implementing the alphabet chant into our morning circle time activities. The alphabet chant consists of twenty-six alphabet picture cards. Each card contains both a capital and lowercase letter, along with a picture of an object that begins with the corresponding letter. At circle time, I will hold up each card, the class will say "A" is for (letter name) apple "a,a,a" (letter sound). We will also begin our Letter of the Week lessons this month. The letter of the week will include a story book for each letter of the alphabet, letter writing, and sound/sight recognition of each letter.

Thank you for all of your help and support! Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2017!

Sincerely,
Mrs. O
