Welcome to Pre-K!Education.png



OUR WEEK AT A GLANCE:


Monday: All of the activities, books we read, and homework will center around a “Letter of the Week.” Recognizing the letters, practicing letter formation, and gaining an awareness of letter sounds will give your child a solid foundation for reading success. 

Wednesday: Through centers and activities, we will work on skills that will build your child's understanding of math concepts. We will also introduce “formal” religion lessons. The lesson will be completed and sent home. You are encouraged to use the parent information page.

Friday: We will be following the themes presented in the “Scholastic Let's Find Out" magazine to build your child's general knowledge and to reinforce literacy skills.
