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 3/27 to 3/31/2017

Posted on Apr 02, 2017

Hello Preschool Families,

     This week in Preschool we worked on Letter T.  We made T towers out of uppercase/lowercase "T" and we put various T items in our suitcase for our pretend trip.  We practiced the formation and the sound that T makes.  It was a pretty "terrific" week with Tt. 

      For our Art projects, we made a tree, decorated a paper Easter basket and made a tissue heart cross for Jesus.  Our room looks great and ready for Easter.

     This week in Math we ordered numbers 1 through 10 and did a dot-to-dot paper to ten.

     Instead of Science this week, we had a kindness lesson which involved cotton balls and sandpaper.  We compared both and learned that we need to use more cotton ball words everyday with each other, like "please," thank you," "I like you," "you're my friend," etc.   We learned that we should not be using sandpaper words because  they are not nice and we can hurt each other's feelings with them.  We read a story about sharing and friendship.  

     On Friday, our Mother McAuley student, Miss Christina, further added a manners lesson on saying please and thank you.  We can never have too much kindness in our lives.  

     This week in Religion we talked about how God made people because He loves us and wants us all to be nice to each other.  

     We went to the Book Fair this week and I want to thank you all for the wonderful books that you donated to the classroom.  I am working on reading each and every one of them.  Thank you again, so very much.

     Have a great rest of the weekend!
