What's Happening at Learn-a-Lot Bilingual Preschool

October 2019

What a fun first month of school! I can’t believe how quickly the children are adapting and learning. I am glad to see that they are getting very comfortable with the class environment. For the month of September, we have introduced and will continue to work on: classroom routines, classroom rules, practicing letters in our name, pre-writing, pre-math, and gross and fine motor activities! What a busy month it has been! We have also introduced some basic Vietnamese into our circle time routine.

We are going to start the “Letter of the Week” program on Monday, September 30th. Please have your child bring a new show and tell to school every day. The object that they bring in for show and tell needs to begin with the letter of the week, it can also be something like an action/body part (for example: if the letter is “L” they can bring in things like lemon, lion, leg, light, leap). The students will learn in class the letter, the sound that the letter makes, and some words that begin with that letter. Each Sunday a new “Letter of the Week” will be learned in class and a reminder email will be sent out to parents. I hope that you will enjoy helping your child with this program. The students will learn the letters of the alphabet and the sounds that they make very quickly! The first letter for the week of September 30 – October 3 is “L”.

Please utilize our website: for information about the “Letter of the Week” (under the “Curriculum” tab). The website also talks more about school closures due to weather, and updated monthly newsletters! If your child is going to be absent from school, please call/text me at 206-854-4834 or email

Our pumpkin patch field trip is coming up on October 3rd! There will be no class on field trip days. I will send a reminder email next Sunday with more details. Please turn in your permission slips if you haven’t done so already. Thank you!

Monday, October 14th We will have picture day! We will have individual photos of the students and also a class photo! I have a nice camera and tripod system that I use every year.

October 31st will be our Harvest/Halloween “party”. Students are welcome to come dressed up in a costume! If you wish to send treats for the students to take home, please send them individually wrapped and please be mindful of nut allergies. I will have some sort of healthy snack for the kids in class (TBD).  

Thank you everyone for your support! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
