The Letter D

This week we discussed letter D.  When discussing our letter of the week we practicing writing the letter and listening to the sound the letter makes.  You can help at home by pointing out the beginning sounds of words to your child.  Being able to recognize beginning sounds will help down the road when your child is learning to read.  Our math focus is counting 1-30 and drawing shapes.

The Library

We had our first visit of the year to the Tipp Library.  Miss Julie shared stories about flying objects.  The children all did a great job walking to the library.  We look forward to our next visit.

Thank you, to the parents who said they can drive to Brukner on October 20.  Please remember to bring your child’s car seat into the church gathering area upstairs.  That is where we will meet before the trip so you can put the seat in the car your child will be traveling in.

Our Week

This week we discussed the letter C.  We learned that C has two different sounds, the hard c which sounds more like the letter k and soft c which sounds like the letter s.  We read the book Cookie’s Week.  We learned more about the days of the week as Cookie found trouble around her house.  We also practiced retelling a story using this book.

Library Visit

The Shining Stars will have their first visit to the library on Wednesday.  Please remember we walk rain or shine.  It is important that your child is dressed for the weather and is wearing shoes that will stay on their feet.

Our Week

What a great week!  This week we discussed the letter B and we made Brown Bears.  Our bears will be hanging outside of our class room next week.  We also had lots of fun in the studio creating “art” by using items we recycle.  If you have any items at home that you think we can use please let me know.

Show and Tell

The children are all doing a great job with show and tell.  Along with using clues and making predictions about what is in the bag we are learning how to ask questions.  Thanks for helping out by discussing the clues at home first.

Our Week

The Shining Stars have had a very busy week. We discussed the letter A and we continued learning the routine and rules of our class. We had our first Bible Story time with the Busy Bees and tomorrow we will share our day with the Awesome Acorns as we discuss how God created the earth. On Tuesday, we had our first visit from Mrs. Oates a.k.a. The Story Lady. She shared two funny stories with us, we played a fun guessing game and we painted with smelly paints.

Show and Tell

Show and tell bags started going home today. Please encourage your child to bring an item that fits inside the bag. We play a guessing game and it is not as much fun if the show and tell item is not completely covered by the bag. The show and tell bag is always due back on the next school day.

Coming Up

Please remember next Tuesday and Wednesday is lunch bunch. Lunch bunch pick up time is 1:00.

What a wonderful start to the school year.  The Shining Stars enjoyed getting to know new friends and reconnecting with some old friends.  We have spent most of the week learning the routine and rules of the class.  The children learned how to sign in when they enter the classroom each day and how to clean up when they are finished with their snack. We will continue to build on these self help skills throughout the year.

This week we read Maisy Goes to Preschool, Ten Red Apples and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  During morning meeting time we worked on name recognition, counting and days of the week.  Next week we start learning the alphabet with letter A.

Please remember if we dismiss from the play garden the Shining Stars will be picked up at the gate on Third Street.  Please wait by the Third Street gate for your child.  Having the groups separated makes pick up much easier.  Thanks in advance for your help with this.

Always remember to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Suzanne Collins

Happenings-

This week Miss Julie came to Main Street Preschool for our last story time of the year.  She read us a very funny book about a boy named Porker who found a chair.  A reminder note about the summer reading program at the Tipp city Library went home on Wednesday.  The Shining Stars all seemed excited to sign up.  We celebrated Jon’s 6th Birthday this week!  Our chefs this week were Emma, Josie, and Alexa.  The Shining Stars all loved the yummy snacks that our friends made for us.

Happenings

This week the Shining Stars discussed the letter X.  It is hard to believe that we are almost done with the alphabet!  The children are doing a great job learning their letters.  I am also very proud of all the Shining Stars for doing a great job with asking questions during show and tell.  We also have had lots of fun guessing what our friends are bringing in the show and tell bags.  Adam Chaney stumped us all with his baseball glove.  Good job Adam!

Reminder

If you have not signed your child up for kindergarten yet please do so.  Registration has begun in Tipp City.  Troy city schools will begin registration on Tuesday, April 27.

Special Stars

This week I will start sending home the stars for our Special Star project.  Please help your child to decorate his or her star and return it to school whenever you are finished.  I would like to have all the stars returned by April 9th.

Happenings

This week the Shining Stars discussed the letter V.  Everyone liked the vibration that our lips made when we said the v sound.  We also had some fun doing some simple addition problems.  The Shining Stars did a great job adding numbers together.

Also this week we discussed the new month of March.  We talked about what it means when people say “March come in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”.  We will be tracking the lion and lamb days of March to see if that is true, and which kind of days we have more of.  We also had lots of fun acting like lions and lambs in the great hall.  All of the Shining Stars did a great job roaring like lions.

Library visit

On Wednesday, we visited the library and Miss Julie read stories about fish.  Our next library visit will be on Wednesday, April 7.

Reminder
