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 12/3-12/6/18

Posted on Dec 08, 2018

Dear Preschool Parents:

      We had a great week in Preschool!

     Our buddies helped us make our Advent chain which we brought home.  The students know they are to remove a chain a day.  They may need a little adjusting, we might have added a little more chains than needed.  We talked about how we are getting ready for Christmas and we lit our first Advent candle, which is really just construction paper.  We talked about how we are getting ready at home and at school by helping, as we prepare for Jesus' birthday.

     For Language Arts, we worked on Letter K.  We learned the sound, the formation and read some fun "K" stories.  We also learned the sign for K.  We reviewed J by sorting Jacks and Kings from our deck of cards.  We also got to open an envelope and pulled out either a key or a King card.  Somebody got the "Joker," or the "stinker" as we like to call it.  

     For Math we played a Christmas math game.  We pulled out numbers out of Santa's hat and identified the number.  We focused on number 8 this week too.

     Our Art projects were painting stripes on a candy cane and a Santa.  

     We had a day off on Friday and the teachers attended a wonderful Religious In Service.  

     REMINDERS:  Our upcoming Christmas Show will take place on 12/19.  Students will be brought to the classroom and you can then take your seat in the church. We will process in with all three preschool classes. After the show the students will exit back to their classrooms and you will be able to pick them up there.  We are excited to blend our morning and afternoon preschool classes together. 

     Have a great rest of the weekend!
