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,

     We had a fun week in preschool!  We began the week with Veteran's Day.  We  talked about how lucky we are to have such brave and wonderful men and women in the military that take care of our country.  

     For our art projects we made a Pilgrim boy or girl and we also worked on some pages of a special Thanksgiving Book that we are putting together.   We also put our fingerprints on a thankful tree. 

     For Math this week we worked in teams of two.  We took turns rolling a dice cube and then counted out cotton balls to put on our pumpkin pie.  The cotton balls were the whip cream.  

     For Religion this week we learned about being kind to one another.  We role played some scenarios and decided what would be the kinder way to be in each situation.  

     We worked on Letter Hh this week.  We played some fun games like, choosing a heart that had either an "H" or an "h" on it and then sorted them in columns.  We also chose an item and if it began with our sound, we "put it in the hat."  Finally, we played a fun game of hide the turkey.  I hid a turkey behind a house and they all had a chance to chose which color house I hid the turkey behind.

     We have been singing turkey songs, playing the "turkey pokey," and reading some great Thanksgiving books.  We are learning about Pilgrims and Native Americans too. 

     During all of this fun, in preparation for our progress reports, I have been testing your children on pencil grip, cutting skills, colors, shapes, numbers, counting and recognizing the letters that we have learned so far in preschool.  Everyone is doing so well and I know this is due to your hard work with your kids at home.  Thank you for everything you do!

     Have a great rest of the weekend!
