Class Updates & Reminders:
Hello Parents! My name is Kelly Arnold and I will be the PreK 4 teacher. I can not even express how excited I am to work with both you and your child this coming school year. This will be my first full year teaching, however I have been working with both Catholic Community Choir and Crescendo Academy for almost a year now. This year will be filled with fun, laughter, adventures and most importantly learning! In my classroom, your child will be cared for and loved. I will value their ideas, thoughts, and actions. I believe each child is unique and therefore will have unique talents and strengths that they will share with myself and their peers. My wish for this year is to instill a love of learning for each child in my classroom in order to create lifelong learners.
Sincerely, Miss Kelly
What We're Learning This Week:
I have so many fun things planned for this week in our PreK 4 class. Our letter of the week will be "Kk" and we will focus on all different words such as King, Koala, Kite, Kind, Kangaroo, and of course (Miss) Kelly! Our theme this week will be Weather and the students will explore the different types of weather through a variety of hands on activities. I encourage you to discuss what the weather is like each day with your child as we also do this each morning with our Weather Frog, Freddy. The students continue to amaze me every day and I am so proud of their hard work. The students will continue to work on both their fine and gross motor skills through tracing, cutting, coloring, running and playing each and every day! They will also continue to practice their writing skills for both letters and numbers. They have come such a long way since the beginning of the year and we are now even exploring some new sight words. I will do my best to provide for each student's unique learning styles such as using movement, songs, and hands on learning. On Friday, we will have Show and Tell and the students are encouraged to bring in an object that begins with our letter of the week!
