We are approaching the end of the school year and our students are preparing to transition into kindergarten and are very enthusiastic about stepping up to the next level. The month of June has many exciting school events, such as, Carnival Day, Career Day, Donuts with Dad (Pre-K Father's Day), Bakers and Shakers (Pre-K only), and our End of Year Ceremony.
On Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 2:45 to 3:30, room 102, the Pre-K Staff will be presenting our last parent workshop concerning your child's smooth transition into kindergarten in September, with helpful tips. The topic of discussion will include the emotional, social and academic readiness for kindergarten. There will be a power point presentation along with a question and answer session.
Our Explore Unit of Study for June is "Transformation," the children conclude the year by investigating how things change over time. The children will observe the life cycle of a butterfly, by observing a live butterfly nursery in our science discovery center. During this month the children will be doing a self reflection of their progress in pre-kindergarten and how they developed and are ready for their transition into kindergarten.
Building Blocks Math for June is a school year review of the following learning trajectories the children explored: shapes, counting, compare amounts, add and subtract small numbers and many more math skills that will prepare them for kindergarten.
The Pre-K teaching staff thanks you for your support and participation and we are looking forward to an exciting month.
