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 Y.  We will start talking about our resurrection eggs this week and I will be sending a set of resurrection eggs home with each student the last day before break.  You will really enjoy how they sell the story of the Passion with you.  We will also be talking about yarn, yachts, yellow and Mr. Yuk.  We will talk about where yarn comes from and what you can make from it.  We will talk about yachts and what colors we can make from yellow.  We will talk about the Mr. Yuk sticker and why and what it was created for – which is to save little children.  We will make a giant poster for you to put up somewhere in your home to have just in case of emergencies.  

Questions to ask:

What saint are we talking about this week?

Why is this saint a saint?

What sound does an Y make?

Show me Y in sign language?

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.
