Our students are learning more and more each day. They are becoming familiar with the classroom and are starting to use their vocabulary to express their needs. This month’s focus will be “Us” the students will have the opportunity to explore their sense of belonging. Every week we will focus on a topic that will help the students learn more about “Us”. The weekly focus topics are; Our Class, Our Building, Our Grown-Ups, and Caring. Throughout each week the students will answer questions, engage in activities and learn more about who we are. They will learn about the building we are in and the grown-ups they see each day at school. The students will learn how to care for one another and express their feelings when something is wrong. You can help your child build their communication skills and vocabulary at home by asking them about these topics or reading stories about these topics.
This month we end our unit of study about Our Community. We will have a Culminating Celebration at the end of this month. Please look for information about our special event.
Our family engagement projects will focus on our weekly topics and we encourage families to do the activities with their child. When our school and home connection is strong our students learn the most. At home, you can help your child by creating routines for bedtime or throughout the day. Having conversations with children as young as 3 will increase their communication skills and vocabulary. Encourage your child to speak about their needs, wants and feelings to help them increase their communications skills within school. To encourage self-help skills at home have your child feed themselves, try to dress themselves and encourage them they can try to do tasks without help at first. Please continue working with your child on potty training as we will continue to help them along the way in school. We look forward to an amazing year and we cannot wait to see how much our students grow.
3K Exploration 1: Our Community
Week 1: Family Engagement Project
Please send in a family picture that will be displayed on our family tree in the classroom. The children will be learning all about different members of their families throughout our first unit of study Exploration One: Our Community. We want the children to know we are making a connection between home and school by keeping their families close to them throughout the day. This will help them find comfort in seeing their families as part of our classroom.
