Instructional Unit Theme: All About Us

Essential Question: Who am I and who are the people in my life?

Focus Questions:

  • What makes me unique?
  • What feelings do I have?
  • What makes my class important?
  • What makes my family important?

Math Focus

This month our class is learning about shapes and patterns.

Shapes: circles, squares, and triangles.

Patterns: designs that repeat over and over.

Here are some fun activities that are easy to do at home; the activities will help reinforce these concepts:

  • Go on a “shape hunt” with your child at your home, or look through magazines, pointing out different shapes you see, for example; a clock (circle), a book (square), or a pizza slice (triangle).
  • Make patterns with items found around the house, such as lining up utensils on a table top, such as fork, spoon, fork, spoon.

Thank you for working with us. If you have any ideas that you would like to share please let us know.

Sincerely, the Pre-K Teachers

Family Activities

  • Try making a family recipe together at home. Cooking provides opportunities for children to measure, problem solve, develop new vocabulary,  use fine motor skills such as stirring, mixing, mashing, etc…
  • Happy Thanksgiving!!
