Welcome & Classroom Information
March news and updates: 2019
We had 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 have had to work with many sub teachers coming in and out of our classroom. Thanks to everyone for your flexibility, warmness and consistency with routine. Your efforts show and allow when a teacher is out for us to keep on plugging along. I also would like to THANK again all of the volunteers who have helped us have so many Exciting Adventures. If you did not know, a fun parent group has been added for afterschool acitivies on facebook so if you have not looked into please do. 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. Moving on to classroom News, some students still are in the early stages of writing their last names, while others may not be quite ready. Remember, skills are always being introduced, practiced and used, so as long we we keep trying, eventually it will happen. In March we will continue learning about three dimensional shapes, increasing patterns and ways we can measure. We are near the end of our letter of the day which means you might hear more about vowels. Blending kick starts Dr. Seuss week and mid month I will be working with everyone on spatial knowledge. In the classroom many of our visitor have seen such wonderful friendships growing as we continue to expand on Social and emotional learning. The month of March, seasons change to spring, which sprouts flowers and green trees. We will be incorporating these themes into our learning and trying to get outdoors to our garden as the weather changes. Remember to still use healthy practices, by keeping our hands clean we wash with soap, sing the ABC song and then rinse and dry. Parent, Please read the calendar in each child's blue folder (going home Monday) as the newsletter is missing some information that is important for March. Lastly, school registration is 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 (email@example.com) and I am always an advocate not only for your child but you as well!
