Welcome to Mrs. Joi`s Pre-K 

Welcome to my web site!

Jump Start Pre-K


April 9-13, 2018



We had a great week of learning! It’s hard to believe we just have 22 more days of school… please make every effort to attend each day.



Looking Back

We had a fun week studying the letter Vv and talking about vacations. The children had to put their critical thinking skills to the test and pack their suitcases for their particular destination. We sequenced the stories, focused on new vocabulary words and even categorized items in a suitcase for three different vacation locations. We also spent time studying a couple of creatures one might run into while vacationing at the beach. We especially enjoyed making our “camping scene” pictures and playing our camping board game. Books we have read this week:

A Day at the Beach

A House for Hermit Crab

I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell

Curious George Goes Camping

I Want to Go Camping

Fred and Ted Go Camping

Monk Camps Out

The Night Before Summer Vacation

Arthur’s Family Vacation





This week during Literacy Group, the children enjoyed another book by Eric Carle, The Very Busy Spider. The children made predictions using a “picture walk”. The children explored and described various words, dramatized the story, participated in-group choral reading, made an enormous spider web, and sequenced the stories. During art this week, the children used descriptive words to create their own spider!

Books we also read this week:

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The Eensy Weensy Spider

There’s A Spider On the Floor



A Look Ahead

Next week will be focusing on Weather. We will be having a guest speaker coming from the Weather Station.

  • Please sign up (create an account), for Parent Portal before school ends…. You can then register your child for kindergarten (as a returning student), in July.



Reading aloud helps your child to understand stories and “book language”.
