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 1/16 to 1/19/2018

Posted on Jan 20, 2018

Dear Preschool Parents,

     We had a great week in Preschool.

     Our letter this week was letter Ll.  We worked on the formation and the sound of letter Ll.  We played some letter games where we had to find things that began with our letter.  If it began with the sound, we put it in the lunchbox.  We also played another game were we held up a lollipop if the word began with our sound.

     Our art projects were Ladybug L's, snowflakes and penguins.  

     For Religion we talked about the Good Shepherd.  We talked about how we are like God's sheep and He will always take care of us.

     Instead of math this week we had a great Scholastic magazine on penguins,which went great with our art project.

     This coming Sunday, 1/28, is our Open House at St. John Fisher.  We hope you will join us.  We are inviting new families before church at 9:00 and then after church we will be back in the classroom for our regular families.  The students have some great projects hanging up and the classroom looks great.  

     Have a great rest of the weekend.

Part Time Preschool for Week of 1/8 to 1/12/2018

Dear Preschool Parents,

     Welcome Back to School!

     Once again, on behalf of Mrs. Healy and Ms Starr, would like to thank you again for your so kind words and generous gifts.  Thank you so very much!

     We got right back in our school again by reviewing our rules and continuing with our routines of new jobs, sitting correctly on the carpet and trying to remember that it is now 2018.  

     This week we learned the sound and formation of letter Kk.  We played two envelope games where they had to look inside and pull out either something that began with that letter or a golden key with that letter on it.  

     For Math we continued on with number 6.  We reviewed our old numbers and learned that we "slant on down and give it a curl," to make the number 6.

     In Religion we learned that God made all of the animals different.  We learned that God loves all the animals the same and doesn't have a favorite.  We talked about our differences and learned that God made us different and that He loves us just the same too.  God has no favorites, he loves us all!

     This week we learned a bit about Martin Luther King, Jr.  We learned what a leader does.  We learned that leaders make sure that everyone is getting along and playing nice with each other.  Leaders never let anyone feel left out.  We learned that Martin Luther King, Jr., was a leader too and that he tried to make things equal for everyone.  We read a little story and looked at a poster and made a decision if friends in the picture were getting along or not.  We also learned that because of Martin Luther King Jr., we do not have school on Monday.

     For Art we made snowmen, which took two days and glued a Kola Bear and leaves on our L's. 

     It was a great week in Preschool.
