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!

Dear Preschool Families,

     What a great second week of preschool we had this last week!

     We have continued to work on all of our routines, we have all had a job, know how to sit on the carpet and we know the rules of the classroom.

     This week we concentrated on colors.  We did a lot of color recognition and color sorting this week.  We played some fun games like sorting color bears and dinosaurs on a color train.  We also rolled a color cube and placed a color bear on the correct matching color circle and we sorted color objects into the correct paper bag with the corresponding color.  We practiced coloring different things a certain color too.

     For Math we sorted color goldfish crackers and then ate them!

     This week in Religion we learned that Jesus had some really great friends.  When Jesus asked His friends to follow Him, the said, "yes."  We talked about being a good friend, just like Jesus.  We learned that Jesus always has time for us and we can talk to Him anytime.  We colored a picture of Jesus too!

     Our Art projects were decorating a fish for the hall, decorating our first name initial with little colored squares and choosing our favorite color paper crayon and decorating it.  All our our projects are hanging up and and waiting for you to see on Back to School Night which is on Wednesday, September 4th.  The event will begin in Church at 6:30 pm.  

     Next week we will work on shapes!  I hope you have a great Labor Day.

Ms Power's PreK Class for week of 8/21-8/23/2019

Dear Preschool Families,

     Welcome Back for a great new year of Preschool in Room 108.  I am so excited to start the year with your children.  We are going to have so much fun together this year!

     Though we had a short week we were able to accomplish some fun things.  We worked on establishing a good routine that we will follow throughout the year. 

     1.  We talked about our important rules of the classroom which are, "Sharing," "Clean Up", "Walk in the line", and most importantly, "Keep our Hands to Ourselves."

     2.  Most of us were assigned a job and the rest will get one this week.  Everyone really loves getting a job and they take it very seriously.  We have a Prayer Leader, Flag Holder, Rule Pointer, Gardener, Weather Reporter, Line Leader, Door Holder, Greeter, Teacher Assistant, Calendar Captain and Librarian. 

     3.  We worked on how to sit on the carpet and listen to a story and we learned to say, "Criss, Cross, Applesauce, Be Your Own Boss."  We sit on our bottoms, legs crossed, hands in our lap, eyes on the teacher and quiet lips.

     4. We learned a secret sign to help us know when to be quiet.  I raise my hand and they raise their's and then all is quiet.

     5.  We learned how to put our backpacks away and take out our folders.  We learned that when we enter the class, we find our name tag and put it on the board.  We learned that we go to the tables first for a craft or table toys after we put our names on the board.  

     We played with toys, played some fun games, went outside to play and met lots of new and old friends.  It was a great week in preschool!
