Teacher's Message

Hi Prek4 parents!! I can not wait to see all of you this week! I know we are going to have a wonderful year together! Please make sure to bring in all supplies Thursday September 1oth at our drop off. Please remember that we are a nut free classroom! Please read all snack labels before sending something in. “Made good” is a wonderful school safe snack brand. Thursday September 1oth is our first school day for prek! It is a 12pm pick up and we will be having a late snack. Please send two in incase your child is very hungry. Please make sure they are able to open their snacks and drinks themselves! Of course Ms. M and I will do our best to help anyone who needs it while also following the safe guidelines.

What to know

Please read for 10-2o minutes EACH DAY!

Please also practice writing your name and saying the Hail Mary and Our Father.

For rest time the children are allowed to have a small receiving size blanket. PLEASE NO PILLOWCASES, SLEEPING BAGS, PILLOWS OR TOYS.

Toys from home MUST stay home. We have this rule in place so no one fights over toys from home as well as so nothing gets lost. If a toy does come to school I will hold onto it till our parent teacher conference.

Please see below for my important information letters!

Thank you so much!!

Just Playing

By Anita Wadley

“When I’m building in the block room, please don’t say I’m “just playing”

For you see, I’m learning as I play, about balance and shapes.

Who knows? I may be an architect someday.

When I am getting dressed up, setting the table, caring for the babies.

Don’t get the idea I’m “just playing”. For you see, I’m learning as I play.

I may be a mother or a father someday.

When you see me up to my elbows in paint or standing at an easel, or moulding

and shaping clay, please don’t let me hear you say “He is just playing”

For you see, I’m learning as I play, I’m expressing myself and being creative.

I may be an artist or an inventor someday.

When you see me sitting in a chair “reading” to an imaginary audience.

Please do not laugh and think I’m “just playing”.

For you see, I’m learning as I play.

I may be a teacher someday.

When you see me combing the bushes for bugs, or packing my pockets with choice

things I find, don’t pass it off as “just playing”. For you see, I’m learning as I play.

I may be a scientist someday.

When you see me engrossed in a puzzle or some “plaything” at school.

Please don’t feel the time is wasted in “play”.  For you see, I’m learning as I play.

I’m learning to solve problems and to concentrate.

I may be in business someday.

When you see me cooking or tasting foods, please don’t think that because I enjoy it, it is

“just playing”. I’m learning to follow directions and see differences.

I may be a chef someday.

When you see me learning to skip, hop, run and move my body, please don’t say I’m “just

playing”. For you see, I’m learning as I play. I’m learning how my body works.

I may be a doctor, nurse or athlete someday.

When you ask me what I’ve done at school today, and I say, “I just played”

Please don’t misunderstand me. For you see, I’m learning as I play.

I’m learning to enjoy and be successful in my work. I’m preparing for tomorrow.

Today, I am a child and my work is play.
