This week, the children will begin their testing for the end of the year. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t see papers in their folders. We are playing in different stations while I test the children individually. Today, they tested on their fine motor skills and cut on their cutting skills paper. I will keep the cutting skills papers and send everything home after all the testing is done. This week the children will draw a picture of themselves, color shapes, write their ABC’s and numbers (1-10) and (1-20). These papers will also be kept and sent home with the completed test results.
Our Spring Program for the Kindergarten Bound Preschoolers who will continue to Kindergarten next year is set for Friday, May 20 @2:00pm in the PLC. For those of you whose child will be with me next year, I will be sending home a letter giving you options for this day. More information will be coming home soon.
Now that we have finished our alphabet, the children can bring one item of their choice for show-n-tell.
This week, the children will explore the letter Uu along with our sign language. They will also continue to work on their social skills with dramatic play along with our religion, Clifford magazine and writing our name.
I am looking forward to next year with my Lion Cubs who will become Kindergarten Bound Preschoolers. We will prepare all year to ready ourselves for Kindergarten! We will concentrate on the alphabets (recognizing and writing), numbers (recognizing and writing), naming all the states in the United States along with learning our directions (North, South, East and West) and our oceans. We will also concentrate on shapes, colors, sight words, mini reading books along with calendar, days-of-the-week, counting and our four seasons, which they are already learning in Lion Cubs.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
Thank you and have a great day!
