PreK 107 | Teacher: Mrs. Sara McNaughton | firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to Pre K!
The Pre-K curriculum includes literacy, math, science, social studies, and social skills.
Each week the children are introduced to a letter of the alphabet. They will learn to recognize the letter, as well as words that begin with that letter. Through literature the letters are reinforced. The children create art work relating to the letter. The formation of letters is taught and sight words are introduced using My Short Books.
The math curriculum includes learning about shapes, patterns, measurement, and numbers as well as many concepts that relate to them.
In science we examine magnets, light, and bubbles through hands-on activities. In the spring, we learn about life sciences by exploring insects and animals and by watching our plants grow.
In social studies we discuss ourselves and our families and those people who help us in our community. We learn about other cultures through their customs, language, and foods.
Music is a very important part of our curriculum as the children sing songs about concepts that they have learned. These songs strengthen their knowledge of those concepts.
The computer is used to enrich all areas of the curriculum.
Social skills are taught through modeling and interacting throughout the day.
The UPK program enhances the curriculum through the use of centers where the children experience and learn on their own.
We will continue our topic on transformation. This week the students will focus on the kinds of change that occur in nature.

“A HAIRY TALE” by Charlie Lovett
Friday, May 10, 2019
Msgr. Campbell Hall
The supremely bratty Prince Rupert and the equally obnoxious Princess Iphigenia have been exiled to the wild woods of Wychwood and can’t return home until they find true love. But who would love such spoiled brats? Could it be Rapunzel and her brother Bill, trapped in an enchanted tower because they refused to get a haircut? Or perhaps Elton and his sister Ernestine, peasant children who sell all the family’s electronics for a measly five beans that might be magic? With a fairy-tale committee that includes a super-cool big bad wolf and a bumbling fairy godmother making the rules, this romp through the forest of Wychwood is filled with twists and turns. With unforgettable characters like Paprika (the lost Spice Girl) and a pair of paparazzi desperate for a photo of Rapunzel, A Hairy Tale will have you laughing until the curtain falls and everyone (okay, almost everyone) has learned the meaning of true love, true sacrifice, and truly hilarious storytelling.
Admission Donation are greatly appreciated. Light refreshments available before the show.
