Hey, Hey, Goodbye! Mrs. Daigre’s PreKindergarten students released the monarch last week that they observed growing and changing from a caterpillar to a chrysalis and finally to a beautiful butterfly. The children suggested singing their daily goodbye song as the butterfly made its first flight from St. James!
In Pre-K 3, we focus on an author a month. This month we are reading Laura Numeroff books. After reading “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” the children participated in an extension activity which focused on counting, numeral recognition, one-to-one correspondence, and eye-hand coordination. For this activity, the children choose a numbered cookie card and identified that number. They then had to find the ten frame that corresponded with the cookie card and counted out the appropriate number of cookie cereal to place on the ten frame. Once the children completed the activity, they were able to enjoy their cookie cereal.
Our first annual Spirit Week is coming up soon- September 9th-13th. We will have a different theme for each day.
More information coming this week. Go Pelicans!
These students chose to participate in the Cane’s Chicken Finger Challenge. Each child read over 100 pages and logged their reading into Biblionasium! They were awarded a bookmark and free kid’s meal from Cane’s. Keep up the great reading and look for more challenges to come!

Students earn special team rewards after 5, 10, 15, 20 and 26.2 milestones. All students receive a long sleeve team running shirt and an invitation to the end-of-the-season celebration.
