We will continue our PreK Wrap up from last week. Concepts that we have learned throughout the year will be reviewed.  Since we are not able to go on our field trip to the pond, we will explore the world of frogs on Wednesday.

We will conclude our week distance learning this Thursday. If you haven't already signed up for a spot in our drive through graduation, please use this link to do so. We have added spots to accomodate all of you. If you have a conflict, please let me know so we can make other arrangements.                                                         Sign Up Link:   https://signup.com/go/ hJREJfi

Thank you for your help these past weeks with distance learning for your child. Thank you also for  choosing St. Paul Lutheran School. Continue this interest in your child's education. Our school theme this past year was "Made to Reflect."  I have seen each child excel this year.  Continue a life where you REFLECT GOD in all that you say and do. Each of your children and your families have touched my life in a very special way. God's blessings to you and your families in the future.  I look forward to seeing you all this coming Tuesday.

Weekly Note May 11-15, 2020 PreK Wrap UpPlay -and -learn

It's hard to believe that we are in our final two weeks of preschool! We will be doing activities to sharpen our preschool pre academic skills. We will read the story "The Crayon Box that Talked" and we will complete an activity where you can share how God made you special and unique! We will practice our shapes through "Mouse Shapes" story and activities, our letters through "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" and our numbers through "5 Red Apples" finger play song. There will be additional activities for you to challenge yourself too! Please remember to do the activities as your time permits. You do not have to do them every day and you do not need to do all of the activities. Pick and choose what is best for you and what you feel meets your child's needs!

After going through the surveys that we sent out, Mr. Yurk has decided to use Friday, May 15th and Friday May 22nd as Professional Development and work days for the teachers. I will not be posting any activities on these days.

We are in the process of planning a "drive though" graduation ceremony on Tuesday May 26th to celebrate our accomplishments this year. We will be sending out a sign up for you to choose a time to come, drive through to pick up your certificate, have a photo opportunity (no lingering or touching) and to pick up your letter binder and memory book. Watch for details emailed to you soon!

We will have our class meetings on the following dates and times:

M-F AM Class:  Thursday,  May 14 at 6:30 pm

M-F PM Class:  Thursday, May 14 at 7:00 pm

Please feel free to contact me at any time via email or phone!

God's blessings!

The theme for the week is "Animal Addresses." We will explore various animal coverings, characteristics and habitats. The  letter we will learn is "Z" for zeros and zoo. This is our final letter for the year!  Enjoy doing animal activities this week.  Friday we will focus on Mother's Day. The story will be "Are You My Mother?" There will be a song and activities attached for Mother's Day.

Our Bible lesson will be "Noah's Ark" from Genesis 6.  We will learn that God loves us and takes care of us.

Some people have requested that we have our classroom chat during the week rather than the weekend. We will have our class "chat" this week Thursday at 6:30 pm for the AM Class and 7:00 pm for the PM Class.  The theme for our Show and Tell is "animals."  You can show a live one, stuffed one, a picture of one or anyway you'd like to talk about an animal.  Hopefully a lot of you, if not all of you, can join us. I will be taking a class picture of all of the kids during our chat to put in their memory book.

Friday I mailed you another envelope. It is a Mother's Day Surprise!  There are 2 things to make and 1 family activity.  Please share these with your mom when you are finished with them.  An adult (other than mom) or older sibling will have to help their child(ren) with these. Thanks for the extra help!

Thanks to all of you who took "Flat Mrs. Brueggemann" around this past week. It sure was fun seeing everything she did. I truly appreciate it!

Have a blessed week!

Our Pre-K theme this week is "Safety Smart." We will talk about ways to be safe both inside and outside of our homes. The letter we will be introduced to is "X." We will identify activities with an "X" if they are not a safe thing to do.  We will explore safety at home, fire safety, playground safety, safety in the neighborhood and body safety.

Our Bible lesson will be the Good Samaritan from Luke 10:25-37. We will talk about how Jesus wants us to be a neighbor to others by showing kindness. Talk with your child about how we can show kindness to people around us.

Thank you for your participation in our Seesaw activities. Please remember, participate as you can. I do realize some of you have many children that share the computer or iPad. Please choose what fits your child's needs the best.  You do not have to do every activity, every day. I do love to see and hear all of the responses you are sending. I truly appreciate it.

"Flat Mrs. Brueggemann" was mailed to your home. This is a take-off from the Flat Stanley books where after surviving being squashed flat while sleeping by a falling bulletin boa,  he survives and makes the best of being flat, and soon Flat Stanley is entering locked rooms by sliding under the door, being rolled up to go out to the park and playing with his younger brother by being used as a kite. Some of you have shown me that "Flat Mrs. Brueggemann" has already arrived at your house.  Please take me on lots of adventures this week.   If you can join us for our chat on Saturday, May 2nd, I'd love for you to tell us some of the adventures we've been on.

AM Google Chat is 10:00 am.

PM Google Chat is 10:30 am.

Thanks to all of you who were able to do a recycling project. There were many creative things. It was fun to see all of them.

Jaxon's birthday is May 2, 2020. Happy Birthday, Jaxon!

Have a blessed week!
