Rachael's Super Star Preschool

Newsletter September 2009

What Your Child Will Be Learning The learning themes for the month of September are the zoo and selfawareness. We will be learning about many different zoo animals and will make an “All About Me” book. Many of the activity papers have a P.S. (Parent Suggestions) noted on the page. These suggestions are to help you discuss work done at school and create a follow-up learning experience. If you have a young child, don't expect the activity papers to be colored. The most important things are the concepts taught, i.e. beginning sounds, number of objects, etc. Most of the learning takes place in the daily group floor activities with real objects and discussion. These papers can reinforce the learning activity, but they are mainly a link with the home so your child

can show you what he or she has been learning. Proudly display your child's work, and ask your child questions about the papers that are brought home. Try to use the vocabulary words “same” and “different” with your child. Lay out some silverware. Can your child find the ones that are the same? Put a different object in a group of objects that are the same. Can you child pick out the objects that are different? Recognition of similarities and differences is an important prereading skill. Let your child help you categorize laundry and match pairs of socks.
