December Newsletter

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I cannot believe that it’s December already! Your little ones have grown so much already this year! It has been a great joy and privilege for me to watch their continued progress each day!

While November was a great month full of thanks, love, and learning, for your children, December promises to be just as great! As the birth of our savior and Christmas time quickly approaches this month, your little ones will continue to grow in their faith as they learn all about the true meaning of the holiday. We will also have our school Christmas pageant. I have no doubt that their performance will be one of the very best! We truly have some future stars in our class!

Additionally, some of the other concepts that will be introduced to your children this month will include the continued practice of handwriting skills, number counting, phonemics/letters, as well as all about snow, gingerbread men, hibernation, and how Christmas cards are sent.

As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!

Best,

Ms. Aceste

November Newsletter

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

The candy has been collected, the costumes have been put away, and it’s time to say goodbye to October. However, just as your little learners have done the first few months of school, we will continue growing in God’s love, making great friendships, and having fun while learning many new concepts this month, as well!

During the month of November, some of the many topics covered will include the continued study of letter/sounds, number and number recognition, sequencing, saints, and veterans. We will also learn all about Thanksgiving. In doing so, we will discuss the first Thanksgiving, describe all the things we are each thankful for, and of course do many fun holiday crafts and activities!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. 

Best, 

Ms. Aceste

October Science Fun

Bats, ghosts, and witches, oh my! Spooky Season brought with it a great deal of science fun for the little pumpkins in Pre-K4 109, as we studied these ghoulish creatures. 

In learning about bats and where they live we were able to work on our very important early STEM skills by creating our own bat homes.

 

After reading “The Goofy Ghost” we were able to predict which of four paper ghosts was the goofy one and would spin instead of float! 

 

Then we were able to channel our witchy powers by and create our own potion, by mixing ingredients and watching it bubble over! 

 

What a fun month four our 18 science loving ghouls and goblins!
