Note From The Teachers


This month we will start a new unit of study "Where We Live". In this unit, children develop a concept and awareness of the diversity of living environments and explore how New Yorkers live in many types of homes and buildings. This unit provides an opportunity to explore a wide variety of living environments and reiterate Pre-K for All's commitment to including and embracing all children and families by ensuring students feel represented in the classroom. 


In this unit of study, students will learn 


  • Homes are the places where we live.
  • Animals and people have many different types of homes.
  • Some animals live with people. 
  • People and animals make homes. 

Our focus questions will be:

  • Where do I live? Where do my family members live?
  • Where do people and animals live?
  • What types of homes do the people in my city (NYC) live in?
  • How do people and animals make homes?


Music with Ms. Shannon


In music class this month, we will begin learning solfege (Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do). We will also continue to explore different sounds in music, this month focusing on long and short sounds.
