Pre-K Day 24

Wow!!! What a fun, energetic, crazy ride it has been.

We have read, written, talked, checked out books and made many wonderful new friends.

This past week was a week full of new technology. We went to the computer lab on Tuesday morning and worked on improving our mouse control skills, and using the keyboard. On Wednesday we had time to explore the app's on the iTouches, we also had to work on sharing. On Thursday, we used the Netbooks and learned a new program called Odyssey and learned how to use a built in mouse on the computer. Very challenging, but we where successful!! Friday was a day to use the activboard for the first time. It was a fun time.

As you can see our education will not only be reading, writing and arithmatic but technology on a daily basis. Time to learn and be challenged.

A Great week, exciting and challenging but very beneficial.

Enjoy your weekend!

and my favorite was watching all of the children interact with one another and make new friends that could possibly last for a lifetime.

Your sons and daughters are fun, energetic, playful, joyful, happy, excited learners. I know some of them may tell you they don't want to come to school, but when they arrive they are happy and eager to learn. I look forward to this year.

See you at the school.

Welcome to Pre-K

New Pre-Kindergarten students and families, welcome to PreK at Rummel Creek Elementary.

Below you will find a second blog for my family and I would like for you to read the latest post about my Crazy Summer. I believe this will assist in putting rumors that you may hear in the neighborhood to rest. It has been a trying summer for me but all is coming to an end. If you have questions after reading, send me an e-mail.

This will be a year full of fun and exciting events. Don't forget to register to be an approved SBISD volunteer. That will enable you to be able to attend parties, read to the class, help in the computer lab, field trips, math tubs, writing workshop and many other activities. We can't wait to see you in the classroom.

I will see you all on Monday morning, August 22nd.
