Namaste, dear parents
Our activities this fortnight…………
News from the PRE-PRIMARY
It’s hard to believe that we have come to the end of the academic year. Pre-primary has completed their portions and now we have been revisiting concepts done through the year.
Parents often ask what they can do to help their child in getting ready for first grade. We have been giving suggestions in our previous newsletters.
Getting your child ready with reading skills is an important area you could help the school with. When adults read aloud to children, children have the opportunity to hear new words which help them with their own independent reading. In addition, reading aloud stimulates imaginations, expands attention spans, and nurtures emotional development. Children who are read to at home and who read to an adult at home have a higher success rate in school.
In the area of math, our goal as teachers and parents is to help the child develop number sense. To accomplish this goal we recommend continuing some of the activities we have been doing with the children in the past year, such as : skip counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Counting backward from 20 , or to look for patterns in everyday life. Sorting objects in a variety of ways and by more than one attribute.
Besides revising concepts children are busy preparing for the Graduation day ceremony. We have had a terrific time working with the Sr. KG classes. This is always a bittersweet time for us as teachers. They are so ready to move on to the first grade but we will miss them.
Thursday 26th February – Graduation day.
Timings – 9.30am – 10.45am
