Dear 3-K For All Families, September 14, 2020
For the month of September, we will focus on the concept of Our Classroom.
Students will participate in the following center activities:
Science: Students will be given natural objects (rocks and leaves) paper, pencils, crayons and magnets. Children will be able to become familiar with all material and learn how to clean up all material at the end of each activity.
Math: Students will be encouraged to explore different table toys and manipulatives such as puzzles of different difficulties, connectors and tiles. Children will be encouraged to use table toys to build the classroom and discuss what items are important to have in a classroom.
Writing: Practice identifying and writing words that pertain to preschool: welcome, classroom, schedule, peers, classmates, friends, expressions, centers, helpful, teacher, science, library, construction, manipulatives, materials, movement, community, sharing, taking turns, rules, emotions.
Literacy: Daily Read Aloud activities include:

Please join us on September 15, 2020 for our Virtual Home School Meeting. We will discuss the classroom curriculum, class schedule and answer any questions or concerns that you may have at this time. We look forward to seeing you!
Encourage your child to recall the first day of school and share with your child your first school experiences.
