Fairy Tales

      Boys will AR test on Monday and girls will AR test on Tuesday. We will not AR test on Wednesday or Thursday. We will not send AR books home over Spring Break.  Please remember to read books every day on the break. The library is a fun and exciting place for a pre-K child to visit.  Youtube has some great books read aloud.  Storybook Nanny, Simicrane, Ocean House Media,  Miss Yumi, and Babies and Kids books are some great sites. PBS has many great learning shows like Word World, Super Why, and Wild Kratts. PBS Kids also has a fantastic website with fun learning games. 

   Our theme this week will be fairy tales.  Please tell your child fairy tales.  Please ask your child the following questions.  Can you tell me the story of Goldi Locks and the Three Bears?  What does fiction mean?  What does nonfiction mean?  What does it mean when you use your imagination?  Are unicorns real animals?  What is your favorite fairy tale?  Which character would you like to be in a fairy tale? There are also many great fairy tale movies you could enjoy with your child.  Our letter is "U", our word is “up”, and our song is a Cinderella counting rhyme.  Cinderella dressed in yellow went up stairs to find a fellow made a mistake and found a snake how many doctors will it take? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20.
