Looking Back…
*We created our class rules chart together and discussed why we have rules.  We each made our very own “Preschool Classroom Rules” book to take home to share      with our families!
*Walks with our friends from Junior Kindergarten were lots of fun.  It was exciting to name all the shapes we found on the new house being built by school.
*Fr. Elmer gave us a Special Blessing on Tuesday!
*Painting our first Preschool handprints was AWESOME.

Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About…
Below are some suggestions to engage your child in a conversation about what they did at school!
*Ask your child why we have rules.
*Talk about our five rules and which they think is the most important rule.
*Ask what morning jobs they are responsible for when they arrive.
*Ask about our Name Song we sing each day.
*What is the animal puppet that is helping us learn The Pledge of Allegiance?

Sing a Song...
Much of our learning is done through song and that’s why we sing all day long!
Each week, I will try to link a song or two for you to sing at home.
