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 1/14-1/18/19

Posted on Jan 20, 2019

Dear Preschool Families,

     We had a great week in Preschool this week!

      This week we worked on Letter Nn.  We played two fun games; one, "Put the noodle in the pot or pan."  Lowercase n noodles went in the pan and Upper case N noodles went in the pot.  Game Number 2 was called, "In the news."  We chose a picture and if it began with our "n" sound we put it in the newspaper.  We read "N" stories, learned the sign, formation and sound.  

     For Math this week we made noodle necklaces.  We also read a story about graphing and we made our own graph of whether you like mittens or gloves better.  Mittens was the most popular choice in both morning and afternoon classes.

     This week in Religion we learned about God's beautiful creation.  We tried to imagine a world that was so dark and one time and how God added light and color to fill our world with beauty.

     Our Art projects were Polar Bears and Penguins.  The halls and our classroom looks so beautiful.  We can't wait for your to see our creations for our upcoming open house next week.

     Finally, we learned a little bit about Martin Luther King, Jr.  We learned that he wanted everyone to be treated fair and equal.  We talked about what it means to be a good friend and how to treat everyone the same.  We read a story, "We All Sing with the same Voice," which shows how we are all God's children, no matter how we dress or the color of our skin.  We put our hand prints on a cut out world and colored a PEACE picture.

     Have a great rest of the thee day weekend.  See everyone Tuesday!
