This year, our PreK grew and we opened a third classroom! Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Helm, and Ms. Perdue lead our three separate classroom communities and they've already had a great start to the year!
Our youngest students have met and visited with Marley, our canine counselor a few times already. Like the rest of us, they're already fans of his cuddles and soft fur, too! Ms. Probus has worked with students to learn the expectations for interacting with our therapy dog, as well as how her role as counselor supports them as learners.
Last week, they got their iPads! Mrs. Thompson, our Tech Coach joined all three classes separately to teach students how to use the iPads, why they're important to our learning, and specifically how to use a few apps important to PreK learning centers this year. Our PreK teachers will continue to incorporate the new iPads into their lessons regularly.
Then, while enjoying the beautiful weather outdoors, Pre-K worked on their gross motor skills with beach balls! They enjoyed tossing, kicking, catching with one hand, and bouncing the ball.
A day in PreK is always a fun day full of learning! Just ask your student or recall they still have rest time. We know and respect their learning can be so tiring some days!
