Welcome & Classroom Information
February news and updates: 2019
This is a very busy month so please let me know if you need some more time or explanation on any of our upcoming events :-)
We have welcomed some new friends the past few weeks and had to say goodbye to a few others. Also a fun parent group has been added for afterschool acitivies on facebook. Check it out and make some new friendships. You do not have to be active and attend everthing, however it is a great opportunity to connect. A big THANK you goes out to many of you have been actively donating and or volunteering. We would not be able to have many of the fun opportunities we have without your time and or donations :-) In February we will be increasing our learning. Some students are starting to work on their last names. We will be introduced to Symmetry and three dimensional shapes. In the classroom you will also see friendships growing as we continue to expand on Social and emotional learning. Our school community will continue to grow as we have a combined class on the 15th to learn more about Rhythm. This ties into our community helper Unit. Our class will also be celebrating our 100th day of school. This marks that we have been counting each day we WALK into our classroom and truely a Celebration that has been anticipated. Lastly, as school registration begins to open, please keep in mind that if you are unsure about Kindergarten, we offer school tours and have an opportunity to meet the teachers at Open House in May. Have a great month, and as always our door is open, and you can message me on SEESAW.

I encourage you to read nightly with your child. The first few months of school I encourage you to create a schedule or routine with your child. Practice name writing and identification and playing with others. In January your child will receive a weekly "Early Reader and Tip sheet. These "Reading logs" will support and encourage early reading skills, writing, language, creativity, problem solving and critical thinking. Currently I suggest you use your Child's folder to practice writing name (with dry erase marker) and counting down with monthly Calendar. Also look throught the Newsletter for monthly information and tips about themes, letters and numbers that we are learning. If you have any questions about these items please see me or email!
Hello and Welcome to Las Posas Preschool program. I am “Ms. D” (DeFreece) and am so excited to be growing and learning with all of you this year. A little about myself; I have been in the education field for over 16 years, I am mom to a young boy and I enjoy learning about architectural history. I graduated from Ashford University in 2012 with a Master’s in Education and missed the connection I had with preschool learners. After having a child of my own, I have found that parents are truly the first teachers in a child’s life and encourage this philosophy within my classroom. I would like to continue this journey and experience with you by inviting you into the classroom whenever you are available and have an open door policy. You may email me at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I am always an advocate not only for your child but you as well!
