Pre-K News: Clothes Study

Ms. Guglielmo &   Mrs. Dean    Nov 27- Dec 21, 2017

Learning at School

  • We will be investigating the clothes wear for the next several weeks. We will talk about different sizes, putting clothes on and finding out what helps them stay on. They will learn about the different fabrics and how they feel. Ask your child about these things and talk to them about what they are learning.
  • The books we will be reading:

Goldilocks and the Three Bears; A Pocket for Corduroy; Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button; The Mitten; Llama, Llama, Red Pajama; Wash and Dry; The Quinceanera; The Girl Who Wore Too Much; Something From Nothing; Abuela’s Weave and Uncle Nacho’s Hat.

Maybe you can go to the library and check out a few and read them to your child.

Reminders

  • Please remember to send a sheet/blanket (maybe one of each) or sleeping bag on Mondays if they are staying all day.
  • Please put a card/sheet of paper with your child’s name, & your information.

If you would prefer your child not participate in holiday activities, please let us know. We will be exploring a few.

Helping at Home

  • Point out shapes in your home or count the plates/silverware/napkins when setting a table.
  • Talk to your child about their day.
  • Read to your child every evening for at least 15 minutes. When you read a book, track the words from left to right with your finger.
  • Talk to them about their family holiday traditions.
