We love the Silly Snake song, which helped us to focus on our new letter this week! Our sunflowers with seeds brightened up our classroom, and we sampled some scrumptious snacks that helped us remember the sound that letter S makes. Scooby snacks, string cheese, and Saltines were our favorites! Coach Spain was the perfect guest to read to us on silly sock day, and Spiderman took us by great surprise when he snuck in to play during PE!

The Student/Faculty Basketball game was the highlight of this week! We had fun cheering and watching some of our 6th grade buddies play against the teachers.

We hope you all have a wonderful and safe spring break!!

“R” week has been full of new words and projects! “Rowdy the Rodeo Rat” is a fun song to sing, and we have been reading about things that begin with the letter R. We created beautiful rain clouds, built the letter R with wood pieces, and cut and reformed robots,

The boys continued to sharpen their rhyming skills this week as we learned more about Dr. Seuss and his love of silly words that sound the same. Our Dr. Seuss-themed STEAM day was a fun way to celebrate this author and his special imagination! Thank you to Mrs. Brock and all parent volunteers that helped make this such a meaningful morning for the boys!

We’ve been hard at work practicing using construction tools to saw, measure, hammer, and build. Our guys have loved working with their hands in class. Everyone was really excited to dress up in rodeo gear on Friday, and we enjoyed learning about what goes on at actual rodeos!

We hope you have a great weekend!

Although our week was shortened by winter break, “Q” week was quite terrific in many ways. We sang about a quirky queen named Quilla, built letter Q, and practiced our counting, graphing, matching, and sorting.

We also worked hard on our cutting, coloring, and tracing skills! We learned about the number 10 and practiced trading 10 pennies for a dime! Also, 10 dimes make one dollar! Ask your son to count by tens to 100!

Enjoy your weekend,

Marlana & Sandy



Spotlight on Special Areas - A message from Mrs. Watson:

During February, the PreK boys continue learning about winter and the clothing that is worn during the winter.  Our favorite book we use to practice our vocabulary is “Froggy se Viste” (“Froggy gets Dressed”).  After I read the book, we play a game in which we dress the frog using the vocabulary.  We play “El Juego de Memoria” (“The Memory Game”) to reinforce the words learned in the unit.  We also sing songs about winter and how to dress for the cold.  Our concurrent unit is about “Los Animales” (“Animals”), in which we use the book “Oso Cafe, Oso Cafe, Que Ves Ahi?” (“Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See”).

Hasta pronto,

Señora Watson
