General Update

Hello Parents and Families of 405-

A few things to update and some dates to keep up with.  The year will wrap up faster than we realize!  The field trip to the Nature Museum was a great time.  The adult volunteers were great, the children were engaged and excited… SUCCESS!  And, we were on time this time 😉  Thank you again to all of those who could make the time to come.

Ms. Bethanie has continued to check in and wants to be sure our garden looks lovely through this heat.  The garden has been watered well during outside playtime.  We’ve been advised by other Garden Committee members to start harvesting our spinach, so we will have some tastings during school!!  How fun!  We will have two more Fit Fridays.

Thank you again for all the support from home with communications through email, snacks, everything.  Please continue to reach out if you have any questions.

Specific things to note:

  • Let us know if you have questions about pre-k for next year.  We understand there were some erroneous letters sent out and that should be fixed soon.  Please know that if your child was in pre-k this year and is eligible for pre-k next year, you have the same spot at Ray.  You should have been given a preference sheet for full-day versus half-day and we have noted all of those preferences.  We are still awaiting information and paperwork to arrive regarding enrolling new students for next year.
  • Wrapping up the year in a pre-k room looks different than other grades.  The teachers and staff here do a wonderful job of meticulously cleaning and organizing the room to prepare for next year and this will happen incrementally throughout the last two weeks.  Thank you to those who have signed up to help.  We still need more helpers, so please sign up if you can (sign-up sheet is by the entry door).
  • We will be visiting the kindergarten classrooms as prep for next year for some of our children, date TBD.
  • We will have a Butterfly Release Party whenever they hatch!  Date TBD.

Dates to be aware of (and snacks needed are marked accordingly- thanks for donations!):

  • Tues, June 5– Walking trip to Botany Pond on campus.  If it is easy for any parent to join us, walk along, feel free but we will take the trip regardless.  The weather looks like a comfortable 65 degrees that day. We will take a snack along (both classes), so please let us know if you could provide a small snack for the class (morning= 22 students, afternoon=15 students), which could be goldfish, pretzels, something easy that can be eaten independently.
  • Wed, June 6- Last day for the afternoon class’s music lessons with Ms. Justine.  We will celebrate with a small snack.  We have a pretzel donation and a banana donation so our snack is covered!  Thank you!
  • Thur, June 14- Pack-and-Play Day (sign up sheet is by the entry door).  We keep the children outside longer this day.  We need snack donations for both morning and afternoon for this day.  Please let us know if you can donate.  Thank you to those who already signed up to help!  Ms. Maggie knows the ropes and will be in charge of the packing.
  • Fri, June 15- Last day of yoga for Fit Fridays!  We, as teachers/staff, will provide the snack for this day, possibly from our garden!
  • Mon, June 18- Our last FULL day together!  We will plan to be outside, making observations as scientists in Amanda’s Garden, and playing, playing, playing.  I have some games we have not gotten to yet!
  • Tues, June 19- 9:30-10:30 (both sessions)- We will NOT be in the building, but we will meet at Bixler park for one last time to play together for the school year.  Please bring a breakfast item for yourself and child. This will be our goodbye!  What a great year it’s been!

Greetings, Room 405 Families!

Hello Families of Room 405!

I am very excited that we already have a fun week one under our belts in Room 405 with me as a new teacher in the room!  It’s been a pleasure to work with your children, certainly.  Please feel free to reach me at klulrich-pap@cps.edu with any questions or concerns.  Ms. Bethanie has already checked in to see how the children are doing and, as you know, Ms. Maggie is an amazing support and resource.

This week, we have watched our caterpillars grow fatter and longer!  We are making observations and drawing what we see.  It’s been super cool.

Small group work was with numbers (making trains with snap-together blocks), looking at the butterflies Ms. Heiser gifted to the class that are encased in resin with our magnifying glasses, and learning a new butterfly story.  We also walked through the garden to observe (and smell!) what is happening on our way to Bixler to play.

I sent an email to all parents yesterday with the following information. **IF you did NOT get the email, please email me at klulrich-pap@cps.edu so that I can be sure to have current email addresses (and phone numbers- let me know if that has changed!).  Here is the info from the email:

  • Wednesday– we are having a very small celebration with our 4th grade Big Buddies, since this is the last time we will see them for the year.  They are providing a small snack.  If we could please have donations of fruit (I think clementines are going out, but if they look good, these are wonderful snacks and easy, or grapes or other fruit that can be eaten by hand without preparation and mess), then we will have a lovely snack to share.  There will be our 21 students plus the 25 fourth graders.  This means if 5 parents could donate fruit, we should have plenty.  Please email me to let me know BY MONDAY through email if you will donate so I can plan accordingly.   Thank you very much.
  • There is a field trip again on Friday, June 1st, 8:45a-1p-ish.  We will confirm volunteers in the next day or two.  This trip is more “open,” so it is critical that if you have signed up to attend, we can count on you coming along so that we have ample adults with our little ones.
  • Looking forward, we will have a walking trip to the Botany Pond (week of June 4th) and will need some volunteers if you are interested.  Please watch for updates to come through.  We will need a snack donated as well for this walking trip if you are interested in helping in that way.

Additional announcements:

  • Flowers were sent to Ms. Bethanie from both classes.  Thank you to all who donated- we had a lovely amount to spend on some cheer for her and they were to be delivered on Friday.
  • Library books need to be returned as soon as possible.  There is no more lending library for the year.  If you have lost a book, please simply replace it with any age-appropriate book for our classroom library.
  • There is a sign-up sheet for parent helpers for cleaning the room at the sign-in clipboard, if you can help.

Thank you all for your patience and support as we transitioned with Ms. Bethanie’s leave.  The children have been great and are so well into their routines, this week went smoothly.  (They remind me to NOT talk in the halls…)

The field trip went very well (despite us running late) and from hearing the laughs of the children, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  They were well-behaved and patient, attentive and respectful.  I was very proud and felt it was a very successful trip.  THANK YOU to all the parents who attended!!

There have been a lot of questions about changes in pre-k for next year.  I am happy to try to find you answers and keep you updated, of course.  We expect much more information to be available next week.  There will be a “Next Year Preference Sheet” given to the returning families, where you can indicate Full Day, Half Day AM or Half Day PM.  If those returning families could please fill this out and get it back to us asap, that would be very helpful.

See you on Tuesday!  Have a great weekend.

Mrs. Papczun (pronounced Pap-son, or Mrs. P if that’s easier for the little ones!)

Week of May 7th

Hello Parents:

We have delved into our garden and we are seeing a few sprouts! We are excited to experience the life cycle of the plants. We will soon have caterpillars and we will study the life cycle of the butterfly.

As we begin to wind down for the school year we will end our lending library on May 23rd. We are asking that you return all books/game bags by May 30th. Thank you!
We need play dough for May and June! Please sign up to make a batch for us! The children love using the play dough during free choice.

If your child will be returning for a second year of preschool please be sure to turn in your preference sheet to us as soon as possible. Thanks!
We are excited to welcome Mrs. Papczun to our room! Ms. Papczun will be substituting for me while I am out on medical leave. Mrs. Papzcun will be joining us on Thursday, May 17th, so that she can get to know the routine and the children. . Please be sure to introduce yourself and your child.

Here’s a little more about Mrs. Papczun:

Mrs. Papczun has taught with CPS from 2007 to 2016, and then stepped out of the classroom to obtain a master’s degree in Education Policy Studies. Before graduate school, she spent two years teaching at Bret Harte and taught at the Ancona School last spring for a maternity leave. Most recently she has spent the last 4 months teaching kindergarten at Ray, in Room 104, covering the maternity leave for Ms. Maltz. She also has two children at Ray (Leah in our preschool morning class) and Mr. Papczun is one of the 6th grade teachers.
In her own words:

Hyde Park is our home and I am involved in the community as an advocate for our public schools, most recently organizing a community reading day which brought volunteers into our network’s pre-k classrooms to read aloud. I believe in an interdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach to learning through honoring the natural curiosity of children. I look forward to supporting your student as they grow, by embracing Ray’s mission of fostering a love of learning. Please feel free to contact me at klulrich-pap@cps.edu.

Upcoming events:
May 11th- Fieldtrip to so Knuffle Bunny
Thursday, May 17th- Mrs. Papczun will visit our classroom

We were finally able to prep the soil for planting last week! Yay! We are planning on planting Monday and Tuesday. We are also going to redo our Lima bean sprouting activity. Many of the seeds did not sprout (we think it was because it was so cloudy last week)!

We will wrap up our Goldilocks study this week and move onto more spring type topics. We will be diving into our gardening and spring books as well as spend more time outdoors. Please remember to slather your child with sunscreen every day!

As I have stated before, I will be out on a medical leave beginning the afternoon of May 22nd. I am happy to announce that Christy Papczun (Leah’s mom) will be my substitute teacher while I am on leave. We are super excited to have her in our classroom.

Week of April 9th

Hello Parents:

We will attempt to begin working in the garden this week. Hopefully the weather will cooperate! We will attempt to prep the soil Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. We will pull out any old plants and top off our soil with either soil or compost. Thursday in both the morning and afternoon the plan is for us to plant our seeds. We will be planting pea shoots, lettuce, radishes, spinach, and carrots. These are all quick growing seeds, so hopefully we will be able to harvest all or most of them before the end of the school year!

If you would like to help in the garden this week we would love to have a few parent volunteers! The very first planting of the year is a big undertaking and we could use a couple of extra eyes and hands. Just let us know if you would like to assist us! Thanks!

We will also be delving into our Goldilocks study. We will take a week or two and explore all the unique versions of the story! Be sure to ask your child about what adventures Goldilocks and bears are having in the stories.

If your child is going to kindergarten next year, please be sure to sign up for a Parent and Teacher Conference. The clipboard is located next to the sign-in sheets. We will be having a special session for the students who are returning to preschool next year- TBD.

Week of March 12th

Hello Parents:

We would like to thank all of the parents who brought in the “big ticket” items. The children are thoroughly enjoying them. We have been adding new terms to our baby vocabulary! So far we have learned: swaddle, babble, nursing, cooing, drooling, and sling (for the bathtub). We will continue to add new words… please be sure to ask your child about our study.

Last week we tasted store bought baby food! Be sure to ask your child if they enjoyed the homemade baby food or the store bought!

We will start this week with our guest Ms. Katie who is an infant psychotherapist and baby masseuse. We will also be creating our own versions of baby toys! Please keep a lookout for our creations at weeks end!

COFFEE CUP CHALLENGE

Did you know:
1 disposable cup of coffee a day creates 23 pounds of waste per year.
Every four coffee cups produced is responsible for 1 pound of CO2 emissions.
20 million trees are cut down each year to make paper cups.
Many paper cups are coated with plastic and can’t be recycled.

Ditch the cup for one week!
March 12th – 16th
Save Money & Help Save the Planet

Our 5th and 6th grade science students are learning about how humans impact the environment. They are challenging all adults at Ray to brew their coffee at home instead of buying a cup and then donating your savings. There will be a collection jar in the conference room. All money collected will be donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital which is the charity the students selected.

Although there are many factors to consider in making a cup of coffee at home, the average cost is about $0.32 for a 16 ounce cup, which includes coffee grounds, filter, water, and electricity.

UPCOMING EVENTS:
Field Trip Forms are due Friday, March 16, 2018. The trip wot Emerald City Theatre will be Friday, May 11, 2018.

Our Spring Break will be from Monday, March 26th – Friday, March 30th. We will have our third Parent and Child Activity on Friday, March 23rd from 9:30-10:30 in the school cafeteria. Remember that an adult must stay and cycle through the activities with their child. All students should attend this session.

We have a new addition to our Lending Library. We have added “Math Books” and activities (in large Ziploc bags) to our lending library. Please treat them like a regular library book and return the entire bag to the blue book return box. Please encourage your child to try the activity after reading the story!

 

Have a great week,

Ms. Bethanie & Ms. Maggie

Week of March 5th

Hello Parents:

We would like to thank Christy and baby Josiah (Adelyn’s mom and baby brother) for coming in and allowing us to observe a feeding, watch as he was cradled, and his cool stroller! We also watched a video of him using his play mat. He was such a sweet and calm baby! The children learned that Josiah has four distinct cries! Be sure to ask your child why babies cry!

 

We also tasted baby food for new born babies, crawlers, toddlers, and big kids last week. We then made our own baby food recipes. The children assisted pureeing the foods and then combined their own unique 3 food blend. The children also came up with a name for their baby food. All of the students tried out their baby food during our Fit Friday healthy snack. Be sure to ask your child if they liked their baby food recipe.

 

This week will continue on with our baby study. We want to thank all the parents who have brought in baby items and big ticket baby items. The children are really enjoying exploring the various baby equipment.

 

We have also begun our Number Museum. Be sure to check out all the cool ways the children’s structures represent their numbers!

 

Next week we will have a guest Ms. Katie who is an infant psychotherapist.

 

Our Spring Break will be from Monday, March 26th – Friday, March 30th. We will have our third Parent and Child Activity on Friday, March 23rd from 9:30-10:30 in the school cafeteria. Remember that an adult must stay and cycle through the activities with their child. All students should attend this session.
