    What we did in Pre-K 2018:

    November  – We focused on letters D, S and T. We had learned about Pilgrims and Native Americans and the first thanksgiving dinner. We had our own special Thanksgiving Feast with Kindergarten and Pre-K students. We learned about leaves and how they change color. We also learned about the important parts of a book.with his ship! And best of all we learned how to be kind friends to one another.

    December – We focused on letters C, O, M. We learned about Advent and the birth of Jesus in the manger in Bethlehem. We rehearsed our songs for the Nativity Performance. We learned about the planets in the universe and even had a chance to see the planet Venus in a picture from Mrs. Taylor's backyard! We were taught about sequencing in books and can pick out the main characters.

    January – We focused on letters I, F, B, and P. We learned about fun things to do in the snow and how to make snowflakes out of paper. We even heard that every snowflake in the sky is different! We learned how to create patterns using shapes or colors. We learned how to graph items and how to use our prior knowledge about determining if something can sink or float. We even had time to practice with numbers 1 through 8, for writing, counting and identifying. One of our favorite lessons was about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We created beautiful posters with his silhouette, a dove and an olive branch, and were taught what they represent. We also heard about his life, his most famous "I Have a Dream" speech, and why he wanted to give many speeches to help people. We had lots of fun with Catholic Schools Week too, including our assembly with the percussion group, Exit 9.
