PreK4 eNews

We learned so much about where we live this week. We discussed that Arkansas is part of the USA; we decided that this is a great place to live!  We gave thanks to God for allowing us to live here!

Next week, we will introduce the last short vowel sound - /Ee/.  It is the hardest one to hear, especially with some of our southern accents.  (How do you say hen and pen?)  Please help your child practice listening for the short vowel /e/ in the middle of words, such as wet, red, web, nest, or leg.

Valentine class parties are next Thursday.  Parties will begin at 2:30.  Children do not need to bring a box for Valentines.  We will decorate bags in class.  Please send your child’s Valentine cards on Tuesday, February 12. We appreciate the support of our homeroom moms and our wonderful parents!

Next Week

  • Bible Verse: Proverbs 17:17 “A friend loves at all times.” We will practice this verse for two weeks. Practice at home too!
  • Bible Story: Jesus Loves the Little Children
  • Reading/Phonemic Awareness: We will introduce the letter “Ee” and the short vowel sound /e/ makes. (think egg).
  • Math: #11
  • Unit:  God is Love/Valentine’s Day
  • Show and Tell: Each child should draw a picture of something he/she loves.  Bring this picture for show and tell!

Important Information:

  • You received a Valentine’s Day treat order form in your child’s folder last week. This is a fundraiser for the Junior/Senior banquet.  If you wish to order an item for your child, please complete the form, and return with payment at the beginning of next week. These treats will be delivered during the school day on Feb. 14.
