Each day we will spend time learning about the special gifts God has given us. Children will practice the different ways we express our love for God and our beautiful faith.
As a class, we will be attending school mass every Friday morning. I encourage all families to join us at Mass at 9:00 on Fridays. It is a beautiful way for the school to come together.
There is technology all around us here in Pre k! Students are exposed to different learning activities each day on the Smartboard during morning meeting and different lessons.
Along with this students will to explore different styles of learning on the IPads that are used in the classroom daily as well as weekly visit to the computer lab. Parents, if you could provide headphones for your child with their names on them that would be great!
A great portion of our day is set aside for learning centers in the classroom. Children learn best through exploration and reinforcement! It is a great time for the children to really put their ‘thinking caps on’, express themselves and become creative!
This month we are going to continue working on our shape recognition. We will be using various shapes to make pictures! We will also be working on our basic addition skills. Children will use manipulatives to work on these skills.
This month we will be learning about Thanksgiving. We will be listening to stories about the history of Thanksgiving, what it means to be thanksful and how to show eachother we are thankful. Parents, please take a look in our classroom of all the great Thanksgiving crafts.
Communication is very important to me in our classroom. Each Friday families will receive a weekly newsletter about all the fun and exciting events that took place in the classroom as well as the school! I will also send out emails on a need-be- basis.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at any time at NMarkuszka@stbridgetschool.org.
Families, I welcome you to come to the classroom at any point. If you wish to stop in and read a story to the class please email me and we will set up a time for this. The children love to have visitors and enjoy the special guests!
