Busy Bees in Preschool!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

We have been very busy in our class these past two weeks. This year is flying by. Thank you to the Landover Hills Volunteer Fire Department for coming and talking to us about fire safety and letting us explore their fire truck and ambulance. We appreciate you so much.

Our Harvest party was a success. The children had fun playing games and decorating cupcakes. Thank you Ms. Hayes for being a trooper and playing the Donut game with us. Thank you Ms. Raina and Ms. C. for coming and helping with our party. We all looked so adorable in our costumes. Such a fun day. Thank you to all the parents that participated in Trunk-or-Treat. You made our day!

Thank you to all of the Grandparents that were able to come and spend time in our class. It means so much to us and the children.

This week we will continue learning about the letter D, Number 4, and the color green.

Monday is Veteran’s Day and school will be closed. If you signed up for a conference I will see you then. At this time I will give you your child’s progress report. The children are all doing so well.

Thank you again for all of your support and have a great week,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Proud Teachers!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

We are so proud of our Preschoolers. We hosted our first prayer service last Monday. The children did an Awesome job singing their song, The Gift. Thank you Ms. Bangong for introducing us to the song so that we could sing it for prayer service. The children also did a great job with their Hispanic Heritage projects. Way to go preschool!

This week we will learn about fire safety and how to be safe in everyday life. The Landover Hills Volunteer Fire Department will come Thursday to give us a demonstration and let us tour the fire truck. We will also celebrate our school’s maintenance crew. They are the ones that keep our school running so smoothly. Thank you to all of you!

Tomorrow your child may wear pink for breast cancer awareness. They may wear jeans also.

Thank you again for all your support,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Welcome Fall!

Good Morning Everyone,

It looks like Fall has finally arrived. We have been very busy in Pre-school these past two weeks. We had a great time at our Walk-a-thon, walking and dancing. Thank you WPGC for providing great music. Our kids love to dance. Thank you to all the parents who came out and volunteered to make sure we were all happy and safe.

Our field trip to Cox Farm was a huge success. The children enjoyed the day, from the bus ride to seeing all the farm animals to the hay ride at the end. We had a blast going down the big slides and walking through the corn maze. It was such a great experience for everyone. Thank you to the parents and grandparents that chaperoned. We couldn’t do these trips without you.

This week in pre-school we will begin to learn the letter C.

October is Spanish heritage month. We have been learning about Mexican American Astronaut, Jose’ M. Hernandez and will do a presentation at tomorrows prayer service. We will also be singing a song for the prayer service. If you have time in the morning please stay and attend.

Thank you for all of your support,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Good Afternoon Everyone,

We had a fun time in our class last week. We started learning about the letter A and Circles. The children enjoyed going around the school on a circle hunt. They were quick to identify circles that we put up around the school. We learned about Angels and the Guardian Angel and did a lot of activities with Apples. This week we will continue with the letter A. We will begin tracing and trying to print the letter A. We will also learn about the number 1, and the color Red. The children can wear Red on Thursday.

Please don’t forget to turn in your child’s permission slip for the field trip. Money and slips are due Monday, October 1, 2018.

We are off to a great year. If you have any questions or concerns please talk to me or Ms. Campos. We are always available to help.

Thank you for your support,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

This week our theme is "All About Me".  We will learn about ourselves and our families.  I will send home a large piece of construction paper for you and your child to make a poster of your family and your child's favorite things.

We are looking forward to another great week!

See you soon,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Good Sunday Evening Everyone,

I hope you had a restful weekend.  

Our trip to the zoo was a huge success.  The children had a lot of fun seeing the animals and riding on the big bus.  Thank you to all of the parents who were able to come with us.  We really couldn't do it without you!

Thank you Ms. Wright for a wonderful Field Day!  We had so much fun playing all of the games. Thank you for all your hard work and preparation.

Tomorrow is Pizza/Bingo.  We will play Bingo in the Burgundy Room in the morning and then go back over for our last Pizza Lunch.  Thank you to all the volunteers who work at the hot lunches.  You make our school so special.

This Friday we will have Donuts for Dad.  If you can stay and have a doughnut and juice when you drop your child off that would be great.

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 we will have our end of the year celebration at 11:00 am.  The children may dress up.  Please plan on coming.  We will have a short ceremony and then Party!!!  It is a half day that day.

Thank you,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Happy Mother's Day!

Good Evening Everyone,

Hope you had a nice weekend.  This week we will start to learn about the letter Z.  It's hard to believe that the year is almost over and we are on the last letter of the Alphabet.  We will learn about Zoo animals and get ready for our trip to the Zoo.  You should have received the permission slip for the field trip to the National Zoo.  The forms and payment are due by Friday May 18, 2018.  We are in need of 5 more chaperones.  Let me know if you are interested in coming.  You must be Virtus trained to attend.  Thank you Mr. Leak and Ms. Holmes for offering your time to go to the Zoo.

This Friday we will celebrate Mother's Day by having Muffins for Mom at drop off.  I hope you can stay and have a muffin and juice with your child.

Thank you for all your support,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Happy Monday!

Good afternoon everyone. 

We have been very busy in preschool.  Last week we learned the letter X and learned about different sizes.  The children had a good time reenacting the story of The Three Bears and sorting things by size.  We also learned about Earth Day and how to protect and care for the Earth.  We have been learning about plants and even planted our own flowers.  They are growing nicely and should be ready to go home soon.

This week we will start learning the letter Y as well as continue to review what we have learned so far.  The year is going by so quickly.  It's hard to believe that May starts tomorrow.

We are planning a field trip to the National Zoo on May 29, 2018.  Permission slips will go home in the Thursday folder.

Thank you so much for your continued support,

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

Happy Spring!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

It looks like Spring may finally be here.  I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter break. 

We have had a great week.  On Monday we enjoyed a Native American dancer and musician.

This week we started learning about the letter V.  We talked about eating healthy and sampled Vegetables and painted with Vegetables.  Thank you to Ms. Grier our school nurse.  She came and talked to us about healthy eating and taking care of our teeth.  We also are in the process of making Volcanoes out of salt dough.

Happy Easter to everyone,

I hope you have a beautiful day.  We had an amazing week in pre-school last week.  The children loved our in-school field trip.  Eric Energy taught them a-lot about science.  They couldn't wait to see what he would do next.  We learned so much about Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus.  The class did a wonderful job explaining about the "Real" Easter Bunny at prayer service.  Our Easter Egg hunt and celebration was a success.  Thank you for all the Birthday wishes.  I had a great day.  A special thank you to Olivia's Abuela for the delicious cupcakes and cake.  We appreciate you!

Have a great Easter vacation and we will see you on April 9th.

Love, 

Ms. Baker and Ms. Campos

I hope you all are having a great weekend.  Last week we had fun learning about St. Patrick and the Holy Trinity.  We watched a story about St. Patrick and how he taught the people of Ireland about Christianity.  The children learned that the Shamrock represents the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  We also celebrated St. Patrick's Day by wearing green and enjoying green cake.  The children were surprised to learn that when I made the cake it was white, but when I served it to them the Leprechauns had turned it green.  They also turned our milk green.  How did that happen?

This week we will begin our unit on Community Helpers.  We will discover what community helpers are and learn who is a community helper in our school.  If any one would like to come in and talk to the children about how they are a community helper please let me know.  The children love to have visitors.  

We will continue to learn about Easter and the Resurrection of Jesus.

Have a Great Sunday,

Ms. Baker

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

We had a great day today celebrating Dr. Seuss' Birthday.  We all helped make green eggs and ham and we had a green and spoon race.  About half of the children liked the green eggs but they all enjoyed helping to cook.  We have some little chefs in pre-school.

I'm having trouble posting pictures.  As soon as I solve the problem I will post them.

This week we will begin the letter T and our Transportation theme.  We will continue to prepare for Easter throughout the month.

Have a great week,

Ms. Baker

Hello Sunshine!

Good Afternoon,

It is hard to believe that February is almost over.  This week we will finish up learning about African-American inventors.  We learned about Garrett Morgan, George T. Sampson and George Crum.  I think the children's favorite was George Crum, the inventor of the potato chip.  One of my favorites too.

This week we are also learning about the letter S and spiders.  The children enjoyed making Spider Sandwiches.  Friday is Dr. Seuss' Birthday.  We will begin reading Dr. Seuss books and celebrate his birthday with Green Eggs and Ham on Friday.  We will carry the Dr. Seuss theme over through next week because there are so many great books to read and celebrate.

Happy President's Day!

I hope you have enjoyed this nice long weekend.  We had a very busy week last week.  We celebrated Mardi Gras with a delicious pancake lunch.  On Wednesday we went to church for Ash Wednesday.  We will continue to learn about Lent and the story of Easter for the next few weeks.  This week we will also begin the letter Rr and continue to learn about African American inventors.  We learned about Garrett Morgan who invented the stop light and this week we will learn about George Sampson, the inventor of the clothes dryer.

Have a good rest of your day,

Ms. Baker
