What's Happening at Learn-a-Lot Bilingual Preschool
Learn – a – Lot Bilingual Preschool
We are already halfway through the school year and right around our 100 days of school! The students are continuing to learn and grow within the classroom environment. I am so proud of all their progress. They are so comfortable with their routines now and love predicting what will come next in class.
We have completed another four letters for our Letter of the Week curriculum: C, Y, O, and B. We will be adding I, U, V, and X this month. The students are learning the letters at their own pace and are learning that vowels make more than one sound. Show and tell has been so fun and we have had some unique and creative items, please keep it up! I can’t wait to see what students will bring in for the next few letters.
Since this has been such a “special” year, I really had to reflect recently of how I wanted the preschool space to feel for the kids and the true purpose of it. Most years it was no doubt a space that served the purpose of education and learning social skills, but this year especially I have felt the preschool is mainly a safe and healthy space for the kids to grow through play the most. Yes, we are still doing projects and artwork, and practicing skills in class but with classes 2 days a week, the kids seem to always ask for more time just to play! I am happy they are enjoying each other’s company and learning to communicate with their peers. I hope you all see this as benefitting their mental health as much as I do.
With all that said, February is Dental Health Awareness month as well as Lunar New Year. We will be doing projects revolving around those topics and continue with all our basic skills to get everyone ready and more prepared for the next grade level.
Valentine’s day is also coming up and your student is welcome to bring in a valentine for each of his/her classmates on Wednesday, February 10th and Thursday, February 11th. If you would like to send treats for the students to take home, please send them individually wrapped, and please do not put specific children names on them. It will make our process faster and go more smoothly. There are 6 total students in class including your child.
February 15-19: Mid-Winter break – No school. Tuition is billed for only 3 weeks this month.
