In the Classroom
Last few weeks – seems like it was just September! Mrs. F., Mrs. Vincent, and I have been privileged to have your children in our class. Thank you for sharing them with us. On a personal note, this is my last month at St John’s Preschool. For the past nine years I have been lucky enough to have been able to teach and interact with some of the most amazing children and families around. I will miss all of the smiles, hugs, and joy that being at preschool brings.
In May is just a hodge-podge of themes and miscellaneous days of fun. Please note that on camping day (May 17) I would like the children to bring in a flashlight and a sleeping bag so we can pretend we are camping.
Mother’s Day Tea is scheduled for Friday May 11 beginning at 11:00am. The kids are always thrilled to have their Moms there on this special day, so please try to make it. Also, please try to find babysitting for the younger siblings as it will allow you to enjoy the tea to the fullest.
Lake Washington School District will be sending over a yellow school bus for us to take a ride. The kids always think this is very cool, especially the kids with older siblings who take the bus daily to school. We also cover basic school bus safety.
We’ll end the month and the school year with a very small end-of-4’s-class celebration on Friday, May 31 starting at 11:00 and you are invited to join us. Since that day is “Backwards Day” we will actually be having opening circle at that time so we can show off for you what we’ve learned this year. No need to bring anything except maybe your camera and your happy summer-time attitude! Everyone is very welcome to join us.
We go outside everyday and hopefully all of May will be sunny! In case it’s not, please remember to send in a jacket or sweater to keep the chill off.
Ideas for At Home
Read, read, and read.
Practice writing names with upper and lower case letters.
Cut things! It doesn’t matter if it’s on the lines you’re just after the practice. Have your child make a collage with the cut out items – be sure to have them put the glue on the item to be glued rather than the paper it goes on.
