 Welcome to Mrs. Sykes’ PreK-4!

In our class we focus on reading, writing, and number concepts through 10.  The students learn a new letter each week, as well as focusing on numbers, shapes, and colors.  We implement these concepts in a variety of ways through all of the core subject areas.

We have different themes each week as well.  Some topics include:  back-to-school, apples, farm, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, seasons, arctic animals, ocean, Valentine’s Day, Lent, and Easter to name a few!  We are constantly differentiating our learning to meet various needs.  Our instruction time is generally center-based, with occasional whole group lessons and activities.

In addition to core instruction, it is very important that students learn life skills during this time.  Everything from sharing, make-believe, fine and gross motor skills, manners, and patience are covered on a daily basis.  We center our classroom around God and teach faith and to love one another as Jesus loves us.

Our Mother’s Day Tea was a very special day!  We practiced and sang a song to our moms, grandma’s, and special friends, and then we enjoyed some delicious tea and cookies!  Thank you to everyone who joined us!  The kids absolutely loved having you here 🙂
