THREE YEAR OLD CLASS NEWS
Week of December 4
Dear Parent,

This week we begin our preparations for Christmas. We will be learning about St. Nicholas and why we celebrate his day. We will start to learn the "Hail Mary" prayer in honor of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Each day we will open a present to help us learn about the Christmas story. We will light a candle on our Advent wreath and sing our Advent song. We will also be reading "A Christmas Tree for Ruby." We will be learning about the shape of a triangle and creating some Christmas trees. Please help your child find a triangle shape to bring from home on Thursday. On Thursday, we will also be sending home a game you can play with your child to practice number recognition and counting skills. It does not need to be returned.

We will be making several presents over the next couple weeks so don't be surprised if your child is not bringing much home. We will wrap and send home all the gifts on the Tuesday before Christmas break. 

Reminders

  • December 21-January 3 No school for Christmas break

 Have a blessed Advent!

 Sincerely,

 Pamela Nunnelley

Week of November 27

Dear Parent,

We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday! It gave us time to relax with family and prepare for the remainder of the year here at school.

This week we are learning about pairs. We are reading the book "A Pair of Socks." We are playing memory games, finding pairs in books and on our bodies. We are also designing our own pairs of socks. We will look at paper socks and learn that pairs have to be identical in color, shape, design and size. Please help us by sending in a pair of something with your child tomorrow. We will return them at the end of the day. You can also reinforce this skill by playing memory games and "Go Fish" and letting your child help when sorting socks in the laundry.

Reminders

  • December 1-Book orders are due
  • December 21-January 2- No school for Christmas holiday

Sincerely,

Pamela Nunnelley

4 & 5 YEAR OLD/PRE-K NEWS
Week of November 27
Dear Parent,

We hope you enjoyed some time off with your family. We were thankful for some time off to celebrate with our families and to reflect on the blessings God has given us.

This week we will be meeting Mr. I. He has impossible inches and we will try to get them to work together to help us do some measuring this week. We will be learning the nursery rhyme "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and will make our own version as well as learn the Itsy Bitsy Spider back rub. Don't forget to ask your child for one after class on Wednesday. We will be practicing counting and identifying the numbers zero to four this week. Please reinforce this with your child at home or when you are driving in the car. Be on the lookout for numbers and letters we are learning and help your child to find them. We have many I Spy books out this week for the children to practice spying things around them. Next week we will go into church to spy the changes that occur with the beginning of Advent.

This Sunday at 9:30-10:40 the CCD program will have a family Advent wreath making event. Please join us if you would like and make a wreath to use in your home.

We are sending home another book club order. These books will be in before Christmas if you would like to order gifts. We will be asking each child to wrap a new book (priced less than $5) for our class book exchange which we have at our Epiphany party in January. There are many excellent books in these orders and even more online at www.scholastic.com for all ages. You can send in a check or order and pay online with the code J2ZGZ and we will give the books to you when they come in. We also receive bonus points that we can use to get items for our classroom. If you would like to order, please do so by Friday, December 1.

Reminders

  •  December 3- Family Advent wreath making in the church hall (optional)
  • December 8- No School for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
  • December 21-January 2- Christmas Break

Have a Blessed Week,

Pamela Nunnelley

Curriculum

3 Year Olds-Will be introduced to colors, shapes, numbers, and letters using a mix of Montessori and traditional teaching style. Each day our 3s will participate in Calendar Math, Circle Time, Centers and Story time.

The 3s will also be exposed to some science experiments, social studies and art.

Each day our 4s will participate in Calendar Math, Circle Time, Centers and Story time. The 4s will begin basic addition and subtraction using manipulatives. For Religion we will use the RCL Benzinger Series: Stories of God’s Love paired with Bible stories, prayer and time spent in Church. The 3s will also have weekly science and social studies classes, as well as art and everyday living.

Pre-K – will build upon and sharpen the skills learned in 4 year old preschool. It is a class designed for students who may have a late birthday, or may need an extra year for social or cognitive development before beginning Kindergarten. All letters and sounds should be mastered by the end of the Pre-K year. Students will also learn basic phonetic blends, sight words and other pre-reading skills. In math students will continue to build upon addition, subtraction and counting skills. Students will enjoy weekly science experiments, social studies classes, practical living lessons and of course Religion classes.
