    Wecome to Pre-K Distance Learning with Ms. Piperato and Mrs. Tripp

    Dear Families,

    A big thanks to all our families and Mrs. Tripp for making our ZOOM sessions a huge success. We will continue every Friday up until the first of June.

     Pre-K At Home Learning Packet # 7 was emailed 5/8/20 (Every Kid Healthy with Otter the Potter).This is for the week of May 11-May 15th. It is also on the page titled Assignments. This packet is not intended to replace our monthly themes. Therefore, you will need to check your emails and the teacher website for assignments. The page titled Assignments will archive the Pre-K At Home Learning Packets.  You will most likely have to download it to see all of it. The page titled Online Resources will take you directly to online resources if you click on the title.  The page Titled Music and Movement will have all kinds of fun things for you and your child to enjoy! This is a big change for all of us, but as a school family we can do anything we set our minds to. 

    Our new theme, Oceans and Ocean Life will begin May 8 and end on June 1, 20. Please try to enage your child in the theme related activities listed below.

    The experiences planned for your child during this month should focus on animals that live in the oceans. Oceans cover over 70% of the earth's surface. Many different animals live in the oceans and these animals are important to the well being of our world. It is important for chldren to appreciate the value of our oceans and the many different forms of life they support. This should be an introdcution to the varied life that exisits on our oceans and should help children develop knowledge about how these animals grow and live. An animal made every shell and many animals that live in the ocean provide us with food that is healthy for our bodies. This kind of information makes children curious an eager learners and helps them develop knowledge about the world we live in that will help them comprehend concepts they must work with when they enter higher grades.

    The colors of the month will be shades of blue
