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 2/11 to 2/15/19

Posted on Feb 17, 2019

Dear Preschool Families,

     We had a great week in Preschool.  Besides being Valentines week we worked on some other fun things while learning at the same time.

    Our Art projects consisted of decorating our Valentine paper bag for our treats and cards.  We also learned about two great Presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  We learned that Abraham Lincoln liked to read books and that George Washington loved animals.  

     We learned about letter Q and how Q and U are best buddies and they are always together.  We learned the sound, sign and formation of Qq.  We played a fun game called, "flip the Qq" and tallied how many we had of of each.  We read about quilts and I brought in my two very old quilts and we sat on them for story time and then had our snack on them too. 

     For Religion we continued talking about kindness while we also read paper our hearts that keep coming in daily.  We read a story called, "The Kindness Quilt," and we colored big poster boards as a group and made them into quilts and they are hung in our hall with hearts all around it.  

     For Math we continued our work with pennies and had a little store where items were marked from 2 cents to 10 cents.  The students had to come up and count out the correct money.  Everyone did fantastic!

     On Thursday we had our Valentine Party.  We sat in a circle and passed out our treats and cards.  We played "hot potato," only with a heart, pin the lips on Mrs. Healy and Ms Power and bean bag toss into boxes with hearts on them.  In the afternoon our prayer buddies came down and we sorted candy hearts.  Both classes had so much fun. 

     Have a great rest of our three day weekend.  See everyone Tuesday.
