Ms. Teresa's Class

  • As four-year-olds, we are getting ready for "big" school. We have become social butterflies and love playing games in small groups. Our favorites are Number and Alphabet Bingo. We are practicing following 3 to 4 instructions in order. Ms. Teresa gives us plenty of opportunities to practice our beginning writing skills.
    Here are just a few of the ways I am growing and developing during this important year:
    • I LOVE to talk, talk, talk and to ask questions.  I am extremely curious about everything.

    • I begin to notice the differences between myself and my friends like hair, clothes, and gender.

    • I am developing spatial awareness -- that means awareness of my body and its position in my surroundings.

    • Now I can recognize numbers and letters out of order and I understand opposites.
