Dates to Remember....

News You Can Use:
- Thursday folders come home each week along with nap time stuff.
- I drafted a list of skills that are helpful for your child to be prepared for Kindergarten. These skills are taught in Kindergarten so this is not a requirement but having some knowledge will help make their transition much smoother.....tying shoes, scissor skills, using a glue stick, identifying first name, attempting to write first name, alphabet knowledge, rhyming, shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle, & hexagon), identifying numbers, counting (rote & one-to-one correspondence), book orientation & directionality (concepts of print), identifying characters in a story, retelling a story, & answering simple questions about a story. These are things we work on daily in preschool but I think it is helpful for you to know this too!!
