Welcome to Little Knights Preschool

 at St. Joseph Catholic School!

Called to Discipleship: Be Christ’s Light



I am excited to be a part of the St. Joseph Catholic School community as the new full day preschool teacher working with four year olds. I look forward to being a part of such a positive and caring academic community where body, mind and spirit are nurtured and developed.
Although I earned my education degree in Ohio, I have been a preschool teacher in Libertyville for the last 15 years. I love teaching preschool children and seeing the world through their eyes. I believe a warm and loving environment both encourages children to learn as well as helps them gain self-confidence. I am a strong believer in learning through play as well as hands on learning to help foster a child’s creativity and development. I look forward to a positive, loving, and wonderful year with your child!

Media with Mrs Hoglund.  She read us a book, the boys a d girls checked out books and listened to a story on the I Pads.
Zenon’s half birthday.  Zenon brought in a Birthday Cake Box for the Food Pantry.
The boys and girls had a visit this afternoon from Dr Rebecca a Dentist.  She has a son in Mrs Beyers class and came to talk to us about how to keep our teeth clean.  We need to brush, floss, eat lots at fruits and vegetables and do NOT drink a lot of juice and eat candy!
Nathan brought Scruffy back and shared their adventures with the class.  They had fun playing at the park, eating yummy cinnamon rolls, playing with Nathan’s  sister Mickey and snuggling!
The 5th group had to look in the sensory table for upper and lower case letters and match them together.  All the groups did a nice job and were able to find almost all the letter matches.
Mrs Painter came to help us with Centers this morning.  She played a rhyming bingo game with the boys and girls.
We have been learning about ways to keep healthy.  The second group did a dental health Write the Room. They did a great job writing the words on their paper from the cards on the wall.
Izzy brought the Rhyming Bag in to school.  What rhymes with KIT?   Pit, lit, sit and the answer was MITT.
This afternoon we practiced our rhyming words skills.  The boys and girls sorted rhyming words and non rhyming words.  We then read There’s a Bear In My Chair.  The boys and girls had to listen very carefully to the story and tell us all the words they heard that rhymes with Bear.  They did a great job.  We counted 21 words!
