Ms. Sue Power, Preschool

Hello! My name is Sue Power. This is my sixteenth year of being a teacher and my third year at St. John Fisher. I am so excited to be working with your children this year in the part-time preschool program. A few facts about me are: Ever since I can remember, I always wanted to be a teacher. My love for reading extends from getting engrossed in a great book to choosing and reading books to my students. I believe in daily exercise and if my knees would cooperate, I would love to run a marathon, if I could. I also like to incorporate exercise in my classroom with movement, dancing and yoga. I am interested in anything related to science and I love to see my students faces light up when we mix up something as simple as baking soda and vinegar. I live in Evergreen Park and I have four fantastic adult children who thankfully are all doing well and in great careers of their own. I love going to the city and am a big Sox fan. A great evening for me is coming home from school, taking a walk and then sitting down to a great meal or going out to dinner with friends. I am proud to say that I am a product of Catholic school and that tradition remained the same for my own children as well. I really enjoy teaching my preschoolers about all of the wonderful things God has given us. I also enjoy teaching and learning with my students ways we can be more like Jesus in everything we do. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you on August 25, 2016! We are going to have a terrific year!

Part-Time Preschool for Week of 12/12 to 12/16/2016

Posted on Dec 18, 2016

Dear Preschool Families,

     Last week in preschool we learned all about Letter Jj.  We learned the formation and how to shake like jello for the sound.  We read many stories about jungles and jackets.   

     For our Art projects we worked on J for Jesus, a reindeer puppet and a Santa puppet.  

     In Religion this week we continue to talk about the night Jesus was born and how there was a star overhead and that is how everyone knew that Jesus was born.  

     We didn't get to Math because we have been practicing for our show but every morning we count with our calendar, sequence and sing about the days of the week.  We know there are seven days in a week.

     The Science experiment this week was seeing what happened when we mixed green and red sugar sprinkles with shaving cream.  The sprinkles disappeared and we were left with some very faint pink shaving cream.  

     Some reminders:  This week on Tuesday, there is no school.  We will all meet in the other building in Mrs. Foran's Kindergarten class no later than 11:45 a.m., for our 12:00 Christmas Show.

     On Thursday this week we will have our Polar Express Day.  Everyone can wear their pajamas for a fun day at school.

     The last day of school is on Friday which is a half a day, therefore, there is no afternoon preschool.  

     I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday for the show and I hope everyone has a great Christmas.  



Part-Time Preschool for Week of 12/5 to 12/9/2016

Posted on Dec 11, 2016

Dear Preschool Families,

     This week in Preschool we worked on Letter Ii.  We learned how to make the upper and lowercase letter and learned that Ii has two sounds.  We read stories with Ii in the title and also, many Christmas stories.

     For Math we worked on number 7.  We read a story about Little Number 7 and all of the things he found seven of.  We practiced counting, clapping, snapping, hopping and touching our toes, seven times.

     This week in Religion we talked about taking care of God's world.  We have also been reading from the Bible all about when Jesus was born.

     Our Art projects were, decorating a stocking, making an angel and drawing an inchworm.

     We have been working so hard practicing our songs and poems for our upcoming show on the the 20th.  

     Have a great rest of the weekend!  Snow!  Snow!  Snow!
