Welcome to PreschoolHello Families:Our class has started the music study as part of the Creative Curriculum. We have been listening to different types of music and hearing stories about music. The preschoolers are discovering that they may create different sounds with everyday objects. Continue to have your child think about items we could use to start making homemade instruments. After the Thanksgiving break, we will hopefully have a collection of materials to make our instruments. This past week, we made a list of supplies that will help us create. We saw that cereal boxes and long thin boxes, such as, a plastic wrap box may form the body of a guitar. Everyone will want to make their own guitar. If possible, save your child some boxes to create their own. We have rubber bands for the strings. We'll think about what we will use to decorate our instruments. We'll start making them after the Thanksgiving holiday break.Next week, we will focus on things we are thankful for and learn some Turkey dances. Happy Thanksgiving!!Also, as a reminder, our Elms preschool inclusion session (all Elms preschoolers are invited), takes place every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 1:15-1:35pm in the virtual Elms preschool inclusion classroom. All students were sent an invite. Thank you to Gabby from our class for attending this past week. We hope to see and hear that our friends are joining in the virtual classroom. Ms. Begley and I (Mrs. Zammit) are teaching the classroom on Thursdays. We love seeing our friends join in and sing with us. This upcoming week, due to the holiday, there will not be a virtual classroom on Wednesday and Thursday. Also, if you have not joined the classrooms (Elms Preschool Inclusion and Preschool Zammit), please be sure to get yourself signed in. Invitations have been sent through each preschoolers' school gmail address. Below is how to get started through Tech support.
Chromebooks and Google Classroom
If you are experiencing trouble with loggin into your child's Chromebook you will have to contact Tech Support.
From the Jackson School website click at the top "For Parents and Students."
Then click on "Remote Learning 2020/2021 scroll down to where it says "Full Remote News And Info" "Need tech support for a Chromebook user or a student Google login issue?" click on it.
That will take you to a form that you will need to fill out and submit to have your issue resolved.
You can keep the chromebooks at home. As of now we won't be using them; I will let you know if and when we need to use them.
Reminder: Please send your preschooler in with a healthy snack for our morning snack time and a refillable water bottle. Also, please send in a healthy lunch for our lunch time which will be about 11:35am.
As a reminder & note to new families that have joined us this year:
Please send your child in with a change of clothing (shorts/pants, shirt, socks, underwear) and a backpack. If your preschooler is not potty trained, please be sure to send in the necessary toileting items (diapers/pullups, underwear, and wipes). We will be helping with the potty training of your child.
