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

November 2021 Newsletter

Thank you all for a fun couple weeks of show and tell. I think the students are warming up to it and getting the hang of it. They are learning their letters quickly and love to guess what the next letter will be. I can’t believe that we have already finished another month of preschool and diving right into November. The holidays are coming up which means a lot of excitement, emotions, and possibly change in routine for students and families (with vacations and holiday breaks). We will be powering through here at preschool and keeping our routine as consistent as possible, so student’s know what to expect when they come to class.  

We are working on so much in class and the students are keeping up nicely. We have integrated basic Vietnamese numbers in class, but I am still taking it slow with them since they are still adjusting to class routines. They all love listening to Vietnamese and enjoy learning anything new. The students continue to learn and improve their basic skills throughout class time (ie. Name practice, math, art, fine motor skills, science, and social skills) with different games, worksheets, and projects. I am proud of their progress since the beginning of the year!

Usually at this time of year we have a giant Thanksgiving potluck with students and their parents the Wednesday before Holiday break. Unfortunately, it looks like this year we will not be able to do that due to COVID restrictions. I am particularly sad about this because this is when parents really get to socialize with their kids and meet all their friends and other parents. But I know this is for the best and we can always celebrate later when it is safer to do so. Thank you for your understanding.
