Welcome to Preschool

Classroom News and Notes

Week of May 10th

It’s an incredible gift to be able to teach your child. I cannot tell you how blessed we are to do what we do. It’s also an incredible gift to receive the love and support that you so richly blessed us with last week. Never in my years of teaching have I ever felt so incredibly loved and appreciated. God bless you all. You have no idea what that does for us. We are truly blessed indeed, but last week, we got to really, really feel it. Thank you! 

 

As we make our way through the last 3 weeks of school, we will continue plugging away and working hard. 

 

We’ll move ahead to the book of Acts chapter 8. We met Phillip and the Ethiopian. Phillip taught this man the true word of God. He shared the life saving gospel with him and he was baptized. This story is a great one for children to realize that they are not too small to share the love and iife saving truth of the gospel. They’ll sing it to you… This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine! Please read the story on 431. 

 

In reading, we’ll learn the stories of The Little Red Hen and The Boy Who Cried Wolf.  Both stories have valuable lessons in them! We’ll pick out the characters, setting and problem and solution in each story. 

 

In science, we’ll learn about the small but might ant! We’ll talk about the qualifications to be classified as an insect or not. We’ll see how to “trap ants” with some fun sugary experiments and see what attracts them the most. 

 

In math we will use measuring linking cubes to see how tall/long  things are. 

 

In Social studies, we’ll take a look at our American flag. We’ll learn about the stars, the stripes and the colors meaning. 

 

Just a few things to remember…. 

 

 

This Friday… Prince of Peace k-8 will be heading to Sandy for an all school track meet. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE PRESCHOOL. 

Preschool will have a normal school day, dismissing as usual at 11:50 or 2pm. If your child will be attending the track meet in Sandy because of older siblings, please just let me know your child will not be here on Friday. 

 

THIS SATURDAY is the CARNIVAL here at Prince of Peace. Kids will be working hard this week to earn tickets to spend at the carnival. This event is free… and you won’t want to miss it. 5pm - 8pm on Saturday, May 15! 

 

SAVE THE DATE… TUESDAY, May 25th is our Preschool Graduation. This will be at 6:30 pm in the chapel here. This is for all students entering Kindergarten in the Fall. (Children returning to Preschool next year will graduate next Spring.)  Please let me know if your child will not be able to attend.
