Dear Parents,

We are excited for the next couple weeks because our two new letters lend themselves to one special theme…

THEME: Rockets and Space!

LETTER/LANGUAGE ARTS: R is the next letter on our way and it’s the first sound in words like red, rainbow, rocket, rhyme and more. HWT will help us write this new letter, as we continue to practice straight lines, curves, and slant lines that make up the letter R.
“Read” also begins with the letter R. We love to read books in PreK, and I’m sure that your child loves to be read to at home. In the busy scheme of schedules, finding time to read to your child will pay huge dividends. Read familiar books which your child loves to hear over and over. There’s comfort in knowing how the book will end. Read new books, and ask your child questions: “What do you think will happen next? What does the picture show? What is the page number? How do you think this character is feeling? How do you know? Can you find any words you know?” This helps your child so much as he/she listens for content and begins to comprehend text (receptive language), practices recall and strengthens memory skills, learns to speak in clear and complete sentences (expressive language), and recognizes familiar words. Reading is fun, relaxing, and a good time for cuddling together!
