Glo Breisach - Preschool Teacher

Welcome to the Johnson Elementary School Preschool page!

Hello, and thank you for checking out the Johnson Elementary Preschool!

Well, winter is upon us now for sure and we just had our first remote learning snow day and Google Meet! Thank you to all who could join in, I know technology doesn't always cooperate and some parents have to work, it was good to see those that could attend.

Currently, we are starting to focus on rhyming as this is such an important skill to help us learn to read. Please practice rhyming your family and pet names at home as well as short words: cat, hat, pat, sat..., hot, pot, rot, lot..., pig, dig, wig, jig..., cup, pup, mup, lup...,  and lastly; pet, jet, set, bet...
The more you play with rhyming the better off your child will be with later language skills. It's fine if the words do not make sense or are not real words, as long as they rhyme.

We are also counting objects, at least to 8 and adding the correct amount for each number. We use our calendar daily to help us with number identification, and counting skills. We also are wrapping up a unit on patterns and hope to have a pattern event via a Google meet with a special community member who is working hard to make our creative paper pattern mittens a reality as real mittens! This is a surprise for all the students, so please don't say anything to your child just yet. Stay tuned!

We are all solid on the sound and the first letter in our names. We have practiced the following voiced letter sounds so far this school year: /Bb/, /Pp/, /Tt/, /Dd/, /Jj/, and /kk/.
We have also practiced the following letters/sounds: /Aa/, /Cc/, /Gg/, /Hh/, /Mm/, /Oo/ /Ii/, /Nn/, /Ss/, /Ww/, and more recently, /Yy/, and /Zz/. That's a lot of letter practice! We use the first letter in all of our names to practice learning letters and sounds, as well as our daily Morning Meeting message and our seasonal charts and songs.

This school year we really have been so fortunate to have in person learning 4 days a week for a solid 12 hours a week of preschool! Thank you for all you do at home to foster the learning at school and for all your support!



Looking For...

I am looking for rice, colored sand, yarn, boys/girls sneakers for 3-5 year olds, and good used ski pants you could donate to the classroom. Thank you!

 *** We love our nature science projects! Don't forget to feed the birds! Many children shared that the birds enjoyed the pinecone feeders we made in school.

 **** I hope you all got a chance to use the homemade pretzel recipe and made some pretzels, there's so many different yummy ingredients you can add to make great tasting pretzels! We enjoyed shaping the pretzel dough into the first letter of our name, baking, and then eating them! I'd love to hear about some different varieties you baked with your preschooler!

As always if you have any questions or concerns please give me a call at 888-6751or email me at gbreisach@jesvt.org
