  • Dear UPK Families,

     

    During these times, we at MCCSD UPK want you to know that we are continually thinking about our students and their families.  We want to make sure that families know that MCCSD continues to serve you in any way we can. Please be sure to look at the district website daily for updates on at home activities and programs, such as the Grab-and-Go meal program.

     

    UPK Teachers have posted activities on the district webpage and on our UPK page.  Please notice that these activities are more “HANDS ON” than dittos and worksheets.  This is because pre-kindergarteners learn by interacting with people and using their body.  Take this time to play with your children. Build with legos, make some play dough, play a board game, dance to the music videos we posted, sort laundry by color together.  Conversations and positive interactions are essential to learning.

     

    I know it is hard, but try not to keep the news on 24/7.  Children feel our stress and because it is a hard concept to understand, they may act out or become sad and not know why.  Talk with your children. Assure them that they and YOU will be okay. Make your time together happy and fun.

     

    We hope that providing you with some guiding activities, aligned with our curriculum, you will be able to play with a purpose.  Your children will relish the time you spend with them. Remember at this age children will remember HOW they FELT EMOTIONALLY not what letters and numbers they learned.  Make this a secure and fun time with them. What they will gain is an awareness of calm and love as a way to cope with a challenge.

     

    Please be well and we will see you all again soon!
