Reading at Home Earns Pizza!

This October our class will begin a home-based reading incentive.  A reading log was recently sent home in your child's daily folder.  As you and your child read books together at home, please use the reading log to record the books you’ve read.  When the reading log is filled with 12 book titles, send it back to school in your child’s daily folder to earn a Book It! coupon for a free Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza.  Children are eligible for one pizza coupon per month from October through March.  I hope this program will encourage you to read with your child at home.


Tools of the Mind –Themed Based Make Believe Play

The Preschool Pantry is Open for Business!

The time has come for us to shift our classroom theme to the grocery store.  Our nickname for our classroom grocery store is The Preschool Pantry.  Over the next several weeks, students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of new centers (see below.)  Children will be encouraged to take on the roles of adults who work and shop in a grocery store and will have many chances to problem-solve and work cooperatively through different make-believe play scenarios.  Here are the centers we plan to include within the grocery store theme:


Classroom Center

Grocery-themed Center

science/toy area

grocery aisle and checkout

art area

card and flower department

book area

manager’s office

block area

delivery/loading dock

house area

bakery and salad bar



If you would like to become a member of the Morningside PTA, 
please send $6 in your child’s daily folder.
We appreciate your support!
