Teachers Bio

Kathleen Hall is the pre-kindergarten teacher and she teaches religion to pre-kindergarten students. She has 14 years of experience teaching and holds two Bachelor of Science degrees from Salisbury University. She also has a certification in early childhood education.

She has taught at SFdS for 10 years and uses problem-based and purposeful play-based learning in her classroom to prepare students for kindergarten. Problem-based learning helps students learn in a group or individually to do things for themselves. Purposeful play teaches the many social and academic skills needed to become ready for kindergarten, including letters and math.

Each student’s progress is measured through a variety of assessments and observations and each student is encouraged to become independent thinkers with the use of hands-on educational materials.

Announcements

This week in Pre-K

 

This week we will talk about the letter K.  We will talk about Kites, the King of Kings, and Kangaroos.  We will talk about being kind to one another. We will talk about different types of kites and the many shapes that kites can be.  We will think of the best places to fly a kite and why? We will talk about Jesus being the King of Kings. We will talk about what Kings do and the fact that we don’t have a King in this country.  We will talk briefly about our country getting a new president on Friday. We will talk about Jesus’ Kingdom and how we can change things with love. We will “work” out some Pre-K problems like the King of Kings would do.  We will talk about differences and what we should do if we see things that are different. We will read a story about a Kangaroo that is different and how she fixes her problem.

Supply List

Pre-K School Supply List

½ DAY AND FULL DAY STUDENTS:

6 Elmer’s Glue Sticks

1 box of WASHABLE markers 8 or 12 count (prefer Crayola = clean-up easier)

3 twin pocket portfolio folder (plastic or laminated = last longer)

1 spiral notebook – one subject or 70 sheet ( 9” X 11” work best)

2 packs of baby wipes

3 rolls of paper towels

1 Box of tissue

1 non-spill water bottle (to use for snack) *** must have**** So the bottle does not spill when they are using it and it gets knocked over. See photos below.

1 box of envelopes to keep at home (this is for you to use to send me notes or to send in money for lunch and NUTS days) (NUT = No Uniform To School)

During the year I will ask for 2 – 2-liter bottles and 1 12 count egg carton.

 

FULL DAY STUDENTS:

Lunch box

Nap Mat – Must be 19”X45”X5/8” to fit into the storage space.  We have a small supply here at school.

 

You MUST label your child’s lunch box, backpack and uniforms, especially sweatshirts, jackets/coats and sweaters.  The uniforms all look alike and I will have no idea whose it is once it is taken off.
