Pre-K News

November Themes are......

November 2 - 6: Healthy Bodies We are beginning to look at what makes a human body, and keeps it healthy.  We begin with tracing two of our very own classmates and then labeling the different body parts inside and out.

November 9 - 13:
Healthy Bodies and Food and Nutrition We will continue looking at the body, with an added focus on what goes into it.  We will look at the food pyramid.  We will even get to have a guest teacher come in and teach us about Nutrition!!

November 16 - 20:
Thanksgiving Our focus changes to learning and preparing for Thanksgiving!  We have the joy of making Albuquerque Turkeys with the leaders of the school (8th graders).  Using the knowledge we know have from our previous weeks, we will be ready for a healthy and fun Thanksgiving Feast next week!

November 23 - 27:
Thanksgiving Continued This is a short week!  With only two days of school we have so much to do.  On Tuesday we will celebrate with the class across the hall with our very own Thanksgiving Feast!!  This is a special day for all of us as we sit around the table and share a meal with friends.

- Pre-K Prayers

God is great and God is good.
So let us thank God for our food.

God is great and God is good.
So let us thank God for our food.
(Sung to The Flinstons' tune)

Thank you God for loving me.
Thank you for my family.
Help me to learn more each day.
To be kind at work and play.

Our hands we fold.
Our heads we bow.
For food and drink,
We thank you now.

Thank you God for the food that we eat.
Thank you God for the friends that we meet.
For the food that we eat.
For the friends that we meet
(Sung to the tune of the Superman Theme)

We thank you Lord for giving.
The things we need for living.
So bless us while we're eating.
The Laker Family.
