4’s Corner

The fours enjoyed all the Halloween activities and songs last month. Ann & I enjoyed their imaginations and enthusiasm. We did a lot of story writing. We hope everyone enjoyed reading all their stories.


Our “Star of the Day” activity is completed for now. They have been very patient waiting their turns – and it is very hard to wait your turn to be star! We will return to this activity in January with a little bit of a twist.


Our units this month will center on Native Americans and Thanksgiving. During this unit we will set up our tepee and make Indian costumes. Each child needs to bring in a white t-shirt (large enough so they can wear it over their own clothes) by November 7th. These shirts are really quite nice when they are finished and you may want to splurge on a new pack of t-shirts. We will end the unit on November 18th with a special snack.


Our Native American Presentation will be held on November 28th . The program will be held from 11:00-12:00 for both classes in Ford Hall. Because of the extended time, the afternoon class will end at 2:00. We hope this isn’t too inconvenient for the afternoon class. Parents are encouraged to attend and siblings are welcome. Last year’s presentation featured several Native American dancers.


 During the month we will also be emphasizing numbers, counting skills and one to one correspondence. Four year olds love working on their counting skills and we have a lot of fun games and readiness activities. The letter box will bring two new letters. We hope everyone is enjoying their “ABC book” to put their pages in each time the letter box arrives

Helpful Hints for School:

  • Class times are: 4 A.M. 9:00-12:00pm M-W-F for the morning class and 12:30-3:30pm  M-TH for the 4PM afternoon class.
  • You do not need any special school supplies.  We’ll provide a tote-bag (you’re welcome to use your own, the teachers prefer no backpacks!) at your class picnic.
  • Preschool can be messy! We would encourage you to send your kids in play clothes that you won’t mind getting messy.
  • Please no FLIP FLOPS.  They are not safe for the playground.
  • Remember to send an extra change of clothes in your child’s bag for the occasional accidents.
  • Refer to your parent helper guide (here) for ideas for snack and other helpful schedule information.
