New letters, new unit, always new skills

It's February! We are learning all about our community helpers this month. We got an early start with a great field trip to the fire station at the end of January. That was fun. Thanks to all who made it. We made the fire men a thank you card in class which I will take to the station. we get to have a guest speaker this month, and another field trip!

We also jumped past our circle/line letters to our camel hump letters. Like h, n, and m.

The kids are learning so much. We have been having a great time in class. They are excelling at their fine motor skills like scissors. And their letter sounds are coming along as well.

I hope the Baggie books are going well. Please make sure they are bringing the books to school on Mondays so we can switch them. Thank you.

Please make sure you are reviewing letters and their sounds as often as possible at home. All the practice they can get will be helpful. We are always working on them at school.

Thanks for all you do. In making sure the kids are here on time. And bringing snacks. If you need anything from me please let me know.

If you would like to sign up for next school year let me know.

registration for next school year.

It's registration time again! We would love to have your little cutie in our class for the 2013-2014 school year. Class always fills up fast and we only have one class, with no more than 12 students, so you know your little one will not get lost in the shuffle of a busy preschool!

Class next year will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00am - 11:00am. Tuition is $85.00 a month. Registration fee is $35.00. (you can opt to do a two day a week class for $70.00 a month but the three day is encouraged so they do not miss out on anything) we follow the Davis County School System Calendar.

We would love to have your child in class. Please take time to look around the blog and see what we do here. We are located in the heart of Layton.

my house, your house theme

We have been enjoying learning about homes this December! We have learned about birds and their nests. The kids made the cutest nests! We made some great fox masks when we learned about foxes. And some fun fish bowls. Today we made snakes! and worked on our pattern making with the designs on the snakes.

We have also been talking about Christmas and made some fun reindeer and a cute little Santa. They are so excited about Christmas!

We have finished learning about our straight letters. So far we have learned k, l, t, v, w, x, y, and, z. Today we finished our circle letters c, and o. Now we will be combining those skills into circle and line letters. Starting with A, a on Monday!

I hope the kids have been enjoying the Baggie books! Remember its mostly pre-reading skills right now and learning to be responsible for things. Please please please do not let your child color in the books, get them wet, or bend them. Take care of them. They seem to be taking on some serious wear this year. The whole class shares a set, so remember to bring them on Monday's. if your child doesn't bring their book back, it makes another child have to wait to borrow it. I will try to switch them out on Mondays if I don't get to them, then they will be sent out on Wednesday.

January calendars were sent out today so hopefully you all got it. Don't forget to check for our field trip, and check when you have snacks. And don't forget we have show and tell every Wednesday. 

they have been so much fun lately!

Today I sent home a notice for the Thanksgiving favorites feast. I put the wrong date on there. it is NOT on the 21st, it will be on the 19th as the calendar stated. sorry about the confusion!

also i sent home book orders for November for scholastic. do not feel obligated to order anything, it is just a cheap, fun way to get books for your kids.

halloween party!

It was a fun Halloween party! hope everyone enjoyed it. ! 

November is here.

November is here! In November we are learning about our colors. And our shapes. We will be learning about one color everyday and making something with a shape. If you would like to, you can have your student wear the color of the day to class. That's always fun!

I will be sending home Baggie books soon. They are the Sam or the bob books, simple readers. These are the same books they use in kindergarten. I know some of the kids are not ready for them and some are. So please let me know if you would like me to start sending them home or not.

For those who have kids that are still learning their letters please make sure you are working with your children on their letters at home as well. They need repetition. If you need any ideas on how to help your student at home, let me know I would be glad to help!

Don't forget, there is no school on this Monday, Nov. 5th. As Davis County School District is having their teacher prep day.

Thanks for all you do! As they say practice makes progress!
