Ms. Tori's update 12-1-17

Hello Preschool Families!!  


We hope that you are enjoying your weekend. December snack schedule is also attached.


A Week in Review:

  •     We talked about our 5 senses and how we use them. We had a lot of fun exploring our 5 senses with popcorn. We were able to watch it and listen to it pop, smell it, touch it and taste it.
  •   We talked about the number three, 3. How do we write three, 3? Can we find 3 objects?
  • We worked closely with the letter Ww and Xx. We created them with the wood pieces. We also looked at words that start Ww and Xx.
  •  We talked about the color, Green. We looked who was wearing the color and where we could find it in our classroom and outside. We also sang our color green song.

What to Expect:

  • Library: Monday, Dec. 4th: Please have your child bring their book back to school.
  •  Letters: Yy, Zz
  • The number: Four, 4
  •    The color: Green
  • STEM Unit: Robotics: We will be talking about how Robots use senses. Do they do it in the same way as humans? 

Thank you for your support working with your preschooler at home it really makes a difference!

School News/District News:

4th Annual Book and Toy Drive: Help us put a smile on the face of a child! Drop off any new, unwrapped book or toy from 11/13/17 to Friday, 12/15/17 at Spark! Discovery Preschool. Staff will help to distribute items to children in need from our school at their homes before the holidays. We are also in need of wrapping paper, tape, and bows. Families being assisted have not asked for assistance, don’t know that it is coming, and packages are delivered anonymously on doorsteps.

Help us to TAKE ACTION in our local community! Parents who work could consider having their workplace help us in this community service project too!


Community Resources:  We have information to connect families with local agencies regarding mental health, child nutrition, physical fitness, food bank, child find, medical and dental resources, in several locations:

1) In a notebook in the front office,

2) In our parent flyer stand at the front entrance

3) On our school website at

4) The black table at the front of the school also has activity packets for parents to take in English and Spanish (when possible)


Please let me know if you have any questions.
