Jump Start Preschool

Feb. 19-22, 2018


What an interesting and informative week we had in Pre-K.

Be sure and ask your child about the Presidents we learned about this week!


Looking Back

We had a super week during Theme Time talking about our American Presidents. The children spent time listening about our past Presidents and how they have impacted our country. We watched short brainpopjr videos on George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and one about the Presidents’ jobs and responsibilities. We also read many books about Presidents and made some fun President crafts. My favorite was their Abraham Lincoln handprints! We also played some games about our Presidents! My favorite part of the week was your child getting to vote for their choice at President between: Clifford, Splat the Cat, and Duck!

Books we read this week:

George Washington

Abraham Lincoln

President’s Day

Celebrating President’s day

Lives of the Presidents

My Teacher for President

If I Ran for President

This Little President

Duck for President

Clifford for President

Splat the Cat for President



During Literacy Group this week, the children focused on the story, The Doorbell Rang. The children recalled details related to the characters and settings, made predictions, and participated in rhyming activities. The children explored quantity, counting, and number recognition. We are continuously reviewing letter/sounds. We especially enjoyed our “cookie”

manipulatives. Of course, our “cookie taste test” was the best!

Books we read:

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Who Took the Cookie From the Cookie Jar?

Mmmm, Cookies!

Duckling Gets a Cookie!?



A Look Ahead

Next week our theme will be Reptiles. We have a guest speaker and his reptile friends coming to our school next week so please make sure your child is on time so they don’t miss it!

Our field trip to Rainforest Adventure is Friday, March 2nd!
