On Friday, February 24th, we will be celebrating 100 DAY in Pre-K. Please be on the lookout for a 100 Day assignment coming home this week. Everyone is asked to fill a Ziploc bag (which we will provide) with 100 of a specific item. For example, 100 Q-tips, 100 red crayons, 100 M&Ms, 100 paper clips, etc. Please make sure that you fill the bag with 100 of the same item. The assignment is due on Thursday, February 23rd.


MORNING CIRCLE

As we continue our theme, “In The City, In The Country”, we will shift our focus this week from the country to the city as we explore the hustle and bustle of city life. Queenie Queen and Mr. Q make an appearance this week as we learn all about the letter Q. Queenie Queen is quiet and quick to learn, while Mr. Q is curious and full of questions that he likes to ask to help him learn.


In math, we will revisit the number “5”. In conjunction with our theme, we will continue learning about money (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) to identify and sort coins, and explore the use and meaning of currency and coins.
