Early Childhood: Pre-Kindergarten

It was a pleasure meeting with you during conferences and discussing your child’s progress in Pre K. Thank you for your time.

For those parents whom I did not meet with yet, I will continue conferences this week on Monday and Tuesday after dismissal. If you have signed up for one of these days, please check your time.  If you were not able to meet with me last Friday, there will be some additional dates and times on the sign up sheet for the week following Easter break.  Please be sure to sign up, if we have not yet had a conference.  Thank you very much.

PLEASE send in ONE ROLL OF PAPER TOWELS for the month of April if you have not already done so.  Thank you if you have already sent them in. Your kindness is appreciated.

Parents,  If you could please be sure that your child uses the bathroom before you leave your house in the morning I would greatly appreciate it.  We are having a number of children who need to use the bathroom immediately after arriving in the morning.  At arrival I really need both of my assistants to be in the classroom with me, as parents are ringing the bell to enter from 7:50 to 8:20.  In order to assure proper supervision, we will not be taking students to the bathroom until 8:30 unless it is a real emergency.  Thank you for your understanding.


WEDNESDAY , APRIL 17:  HALF DAY. We will open our doors at 11:45. NO AFTER CARE on this day.  EASTER RECESS BEGINS.

We are planning to have a ‘children only’ Easter party on this date. More information will follow with an e mail from Mrs. Katz our room mother.

SCHOOL RE-OPENS…MONDAY, APRIL 29. Have a happy Easter!

















Week of April 15 – 17


I will read, “The Miracle of Easter” and the children will learn about the sacrifice that Jesus made because He loves us.  I will tell the story of Jesus’ journey, death and Resurrection using 12 plastic eggs hidden in the library area.  I will tell the story in small groups.

Each child will find an egg which contains a symbol inside that has meaning for the Easter story.  For example, a small palm branch, some coins, a piece of leather, a small crown of thorns, dice, a piece of gauze and other small pictures.

As I tell the story, each child will bring up one of the numbered eggs, open it and bring the item up to me.  They will tell us the name of the object in the egg, then place it on a table that I will have covered with a purple cloth.

I will explain the meaning of their symbol, for example, the palm branch stands for the palms the people spread on the ground when Jesus entered Jerusalem.  When the story is over, we will say a thank you proyer.

I will read the story of the Last Supper from the children’s Bible.  The story tells of Jesus’ friends going to the city as He instructed them, and to find a man who would let them use the upper room in his home to celebrate the Passover. This lesson fits in with our discussion of Holy Week and how Jesus spent His last meal with His friends.

Religion/Language activity:  color the story pictures of the Last Supper, place in correct numerical order to make a booklet.  Read together.

Color the picture of Jesus riding a donkey into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. glue on pre cut palm branches.

Language Activity pages:  Happily Ever After Act. p. 5 & 6: cut shapes and create a pattern.


Today we are planning to go to church to go through the Stations of the Cross again, as long as the church is available around 9:30 after the morning mass. We will have a morning recess outside if weather permits and we will be going upstairs to our school Library for a story time and activity.

Language activity page:  Happily Ever After Act. p 7 & 8: review shapes, colors patterns; review concepts of ‘above and below’.

Fine motor activity page:  Trace the lines on the Easter egg and color.


Today is our Easter party and activities.  Our room moms, Mrs. Katz and Mrs. House will be helping with a craft activity, game and snack beginning about 10:00.

We will read, “God Gave Us Easter”. This is a story which will help the children understand God’s love for us by sending Jesus whom made the greatest sacrifice for us. I will use the flannel board characters to show Jesus’  Resurrection on Easter.

Patterrning:  color, cut and glue on the correct Easter egg to complete the pattern.

Special snack.
