Pre-Kindergarten Our Busy Week

 

 

 

Dear Parents,

    I wanted to first and foremost let you know that I am praying for you and your families. Our young children are absorbing and processing many things as they over hear the T.V., radio, or phone conversations. I would advise you to find some quiet time and talk with your child. Answer any questions they might have. Remind them that no question is silly. 

    I have created a packet of learning activities to help keep us on track as your child journeys into kindergarten next year. The Department of Public Instruction requires one hour a school day of distance learning at home. An hour of distant learning could include doing activities listed in the packet provided, doing a learning app listed in the packet, and/or reading to your child. If you do not have some of the items listed in the packet, please use recycled materials or nature items to help with counting or creating. If you need suggestions or clarification on anything, don’t hesitate to email me. I know for some of you, you might be depending on a childcare provider to help with some of the distant learning. Do the best you can. I do not expect your child to turn anything in, but if they would like to share their journal work with me, I would love to see it!  The most important thing is finding time to pray and read with them. As Mr. Charpentier stated in his emails, please take the rest of this week off and you may start the packet the following week. 

       We will continue our letter of the week and sharing when we return. We only have three letters left, so we will be able to fit this in before the closing of this school year. 

     If you are able, snack friends who missed bringing in their March snack, could bring in some extra tissue boxes to help our low supply. I will update April’s snack calendar online when we know more. I will plan on providing the snack the first day we come back.  

       I would encourage you to keep praying with your child before snack, meals, and bed or as often as you would like. If you have a children’s Bible, please read to them stories about Jesus’ ministry and journey to the cross. I have also included our Bible pamphlets on the stories that would be covered in these two weeks. 

Again, please contact me with any questions or concerns. I will be checking my email on a daily basis. 

 

 

God’s Blessings Always,

 Mrs. Hasseldahl
