Notes from Miss Joan
  We are near the end of Pre-K and our school! It has been a busy, wonderful year in our class. Our remaning Religion lessons emphasize how special we all are. We are ending with practicing our writing skills and letter recognitions and sounds. In Math, we are continuing to work on addition and subtraction. In Science, we watched the metamorphosis from caterpillars to beautiful butterflies and we will have some experiments with magnets. We'll do some Spring and Summer crafts and will learn some new songs before we say "Goodbye"!

About Pre-K                     


My Shooting Stars class is a full day program from 8:20 am to 2:50 pm. In the afternoons, we have reinforcement lessons from the morning, crafts, computer, educational games and once a week we will go to the gym for hand and eye coordination games.

For the Shooting Stars, we have Religion, Art, alphabet lessons, Math, Music (with Mrs. Springer and also during our day), Yoga and low impact aerobics, Center time filled with many activities, Snack, and Circle time. Our Circle time involves books, book discussions, phonetics, short games, and songs. In addition to that, the Shooting Stars have Physical Education lessons (with Mrs. Harkins), Spanish (with Sra. Bracha), Library,  and Science. Our Science program is quite extensive and provides more than basic concepts. We learn much about plants, the human body, winter-themed concepts such as static electricity, matter, and how to use microscopes.

Parents receive a weekly newsletter as well as a class monthly calendar. Pictures are constantly added to our Snapfish album  of classroom activities.
