PreK February Newsletter
Mrs. Vaughan and Miss Emily
February will be another fun filled month! We will be having a party and exchanging valentines on Wednesday, February 14th. Please make sure that your child brings a valentine for each child in the class. (16 children total) Please have your child write each child’s name on the outside of their valentine and please have them sign their name as well. This is great handwriting practice for them! Please send in valentines in a clear Ziploc bag by Tuesday, February 13th. Thank you for your help!
Our dramatic play area will be transformed into a post office/Valentine’s writing station. Donations of unwanted cards (of any kind), envelopes, valentine’s, valentine stickers and pads of paper would be very much appreciated. At the end of the month, we will change the dramatic play into a business office. Any old telephones, calculators, binders, pads of paper and adding machines will be gladly accepted. Our Science center will have balances, weights and microscopes this month. I will be reading Balancing Act by Ellen Stoll Walsh, which is a great book and a good way to introduce the concept to them. Our sensory table will be filled with sensory ball/noodles at the beginning of the month and birdseed near the end of the month. Some hidden rhyming cards and uppercase/lowercase letters will be hidden in the birdseed for them to find and match. (A fun way to learn!) In Math we will cover the numbers 16-19. They will measure with valentine hearts and snowballs, play heart number cover up games, Valentine’s shape matching and count numbers with number cards and candy hearts. We will also continue patterning, sorting and graphing. We will cover the letters Q, R, S and T this month. At our writing center, they will trace their first and last names. We will have a Valentine’s writing station, stamp/envelope beginning sound match, Valentine’s letter “dot it” game and Valentine’s syllable “move it” game. They will also stamp winter words in play-doh and take part in our snowflake letter matching or penguin sound match card game. Toward the end of the month, they will trace letters/words in our snow trays! (blue glitter and salt)
Throughout the month, please look for our volunteer sign ups outside of our classroom!
Remember, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask!
