Our first week!

We made it through our first week of Pre-K!  We are learning the daily routine and having a great time! We are practicing keeping our hands to ourselves, being kind friends, following directions, and walking in a line!  We have met many new friends and have enjoyed playing with all the fun center areas at school!  

The popular class centers were:
-the apple pie sensory table (Miss Becker’s room)
-farm, tractor, and corn sensory table (Mrs. Koosman’s room)
-Barn dramatic play area (Miss Becker’s room)
-Housekeeping dramatic play area (Mrs. Koosman’s room)

This coming week we will be learning about the Farm and many different farm animals!  We also begin our COLOR DAYS!  In Religion we will be learning about the days of Creation and Adam and Eve.

Monday- WEAR RED (3 day class)
Tuesday- WEAR RED (5 day and 2 day class)
Wednesday- WEAR ORANGE (3 day class)
Thursday- WEAR ORANGE (5 day and 2 day class)

Friday- Popcorn Friday (5 day and 3 day class)

We are excited that you have chosen St. John’s Lutheran School as the place to start your child’s education.  We are confident that God has placed you at our school for a reason.  It is our prayer that your child continues to grow as a child of God as each day your child has the opportunity to learn more about Jesus.  Thank you for the opportunity to work alongside you, as we find ways to best support your child’s development this year!
