Happy Summer Holidays!

It is still hard to believe our Pre-K year has come to an end and we are on summer holidays! Here are some songs and stories from our last few weeks of our “Under the Sea” theme! Our jellyfish puppets were so much fun to make!

Ten Little Fish Story

The Deep Blue Sea Story

Animals in the Ocean Song (everyone knows the actions!)

Here are some photos of our last few weeks!

Spring photo’s came in just in time! Orders can be made online and will be shipped to your house, Lifetouch would like orders made by June 25th. Class photos, unfortunately, have not yet arrived, they should any day. I will either send your class photo home with an older sibling at the school, or we will mail it right to your house.

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing some of you back in Pre-K next year or in the hallway when you are in Kindergarten! Here is the story I read both classes on their last day, I will miss everyone so much!

I Wish You More

Love, Mrs. Lawrence

Last week reminders!

It is so hard to believe that next week is our last week of Pre-K! As a reminder, Tuesday, June 15th is the last day for the T/TH class and Wednesday, June 16th is the last day for the M/W class. We are planning to be outside for the last hour of our morning on Tuesday and Wednesday next week to play and have a picnic with popsicles, so as the weather is expected to be quite warm, it may be a good idea to send your child with a hat and apply sunscreen prior to coming to Pre-K.

Spring photos are expected to arrive on Monday next week, so the proofs will be sent home and then you can order online. There is no need to return the proofs.

Thanks to everyone that had a Parent Teacher Interview with me this week or is booked for Monday, if you would still like to book a time to chat with me, please just send me an email.

Here are some pictures of some of the activities we have been enjoying these past few weeks! We also enjoyed on Thursday this week and will on Monday next week, the opportunity to meet the Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Henry. She came outside to introduce herself and visit with us 🙂

Have a great weekend and I can’t wait to see everyone next week for our last few days of Pre-K!

Important Reminders & Classroom fun

Hello everyone! I can’t believe we are almost at the end of our school year! I sent you these important updates by email but will also include them at the end of this post for your reference. I also wanted to update you on all the fun activities we have been doing in our classroom the last two weeks! As you know, now have caterpillars in our classroom! This has become our theme for the last two weeks and we have been completing many caterpillar and butterfly activities. I am linking below our favourite stories to go with this theme.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Story

Waiting for Wings Story

We did caterpillar painting with paper towel rolls, potatoes and pom poms. We also made a caterpillar out of an egg carton! A favourite activity for butterflies, was making coffee filter butterflies. Everyone enjoyed spraying their coffee filter with water after having coloured it with marker and seeing the colours bleed together. We also made a butterfly out of tissue paper to decorate our classroom.

With no other classes in the building the last two weeks, we have been enjoying lots of time in the gym to develop our gross motor skills. Here are some pictures of the obstacle course we had this week!

Here are pictures of our caterpillars, these pictures were only taken 2 days apart! Ask your child what the caterpillars will look like when we return from the long weekend. Will they still be big, fat caterpillars or will they be in their cocoons?

Important Reminders:

  • Monday, May 24th AND Tuesday, May 25th- No School for Pre-K
  • Tuesday, June 1st and Wednesday, June 2nd- Spring photos- individual and class photos.  Students that come 4 days a week will get their individual photo taken on Tuesday but also have class photos on both days.
  • Monday, June 7th and Tuesday, June 8th- Pre-K year end parent teacher interviews.  More information about times and signing up to follow.
  • Tuesday, June 15th- last day of Pre-K for the T/TH class.
  • Wednesday, June 16th- last day of Pre-K for the M/W class.

Have a wonderful long weekend and I will see everyone back on Wednesday and Thursday next week!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I just wanted to send a quick classroom update and wish all of our Pre-K mom’s a Happy Mother’s Day! Some of the responses when asked why they love their mom were: “I just wanna marry her”, “She’s a perfect girl”, “I just love her so much”, “She’s the best” and “She makes me so happy”. I hope all of you mom’s are able to enjoy your special day this weekend!

We are so excited to be continuing Pre-K at school as scheduled! We will get to play in the gym every day, have lots of outside time and complete lots of other fun activities!

This week our theme was centered around frogs and we read a silly story that has repetitive text your child can join in on. We also learned a fingerplay, Five Green and Speckled Frogs. I have linked below the song as well as a picture of the words. See if your child remembers the actions! We also made a fun frog craft that was sent home that we worked on drawing shapes in order to make the frog’s face. We need lots of practice drawing circles and squares!

Springtime fun!

Hello everyone! We have been enjoying the Spring weather and completing many fun Spring activities in and out of the classroom. Here are a few Spring stories that we have read in the classroom and then we have completed crafts to accompany them. These stories are all repetitive so you will find that your child is able to read along with you.

Pete the Cate Five Little Bunnies Story– your child will know this whole story and the actions as this is similar to “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”.

Chicken Little Story– in class we always said together “I saw it with my eyes, I heard it with my ears and a piece of it fell on my tail!”

Pete the Cat the Itsy Bitsy Spider Story– in this story you will find the familiar song “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” to sing and complete the actions.

One of the crafts we completed was a chick that is now hanging on the bulletin board outside of our classroom. We used a fork to paint and then drew on body parts!

We also have been enjoying our time in the gym and outside. This week with the M/W class and next week with the T/TH class is all about the parachute in the gym! This is always a favourite and a great opportunity to practice following directions through fun games. This week the T/TH class spent lots of time outside with chalk, cars and trucks and buckets and pails.

Have a wonderful weekend!
