The information listed below will give you an overview of some of the highlights of the morning Pre-K program. My job as the Pre-K Teacher is to prepare the children and be ready for Kindergarten. Through my formal education and background, my goal is to guide children to get the most out of this class. It is so exciting for me to encourage and care for these children during the day.
We sound out letters and words all morning long. Every letter has a sound, and this is how children learn to sound out words. I try to get them to be enthusiastic about reading. Reading is the foundation of all learning.
The kids do worksheets every day. Most of the kids ask me for the worksheets because they love the challenge. We do letters, sight words, shapes, colors, and math papers. This also builds their attention span for sitting for a long period of time.
Science and Math are all about hands on. I do a lot of science projects like moldy bread, plants growing in baggies, and lighting a light bulb using a potato, just to name a few.
I have a treasure box in the room. If the children make the right choices or work extremely hard on something they pick something out of the box. Wendy’s has also supplied me with certificates for excellent behavior, which I distribute when I see kids going that extra mile.
The class really enjoys engaging in long-term projects. There favorite seems to be science. I like to expose the children to learn how to do hand on activities and have them complete their own projects as well. They get to experience the whole project, learning the process from start to finish.
Parents will be asked to put together a poster containing your families fun events, or special moments that will be displayed for friends to see. The week before it’s your child’s turn to be Star of the Week, I send home paperwork with all the information.
We are always very grateful for anything that you no longer need or use, that we could use in the classroom. Donations are always welcomed. Any old treasures will be new treasures in our classroom!
