PreK 3 - Ms. Michelle

Class News

We began our Zoo theme this week! We have been studying animals and comparing and contrasting them.  The students pretended to be Zoo Keepers and Veterinarians in the Pretend Center, copied zoo animal names in the writing center, roll and counted spots on an elephant with dice, built a zoo with animals, blocks, and train tracks, and placed numbered tigers in order on a number line.  We also sorted animals by where we find them the most, air, water or land.  This week we focused on the letter "S." We made snakes and began our zoo books!  

I began working on the students progress reports.  They are the same as the ones I did in October.  There is no Parent Teacher Conference this time however, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I will send home a copy of the one I did in October with the one I am doing know so you can see your child's progress. They will be going home by the end of next week!

 This week's letter of the week is "t."  Please help your child find something around your house that begins with the letter "t" and bring it in one day next week!
