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!




This afternoon we read Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.  This is a tall tale about a village that has food coming from the sky. We talked about what foods the boys and girls would like to fall from the sky.  
The boys and girls made their own raining food craft.
We talked about wind today.  Good wind and bad wind.  The boys and girls then predicted what the wind (fan) would blow and what would not blow.  They filled out the prediction side and then we turned on the fan and they observed what actually was blown by the wind and recorded the results on their sheet.
We had Media with Mrs Hoglund.  She took us to the middle school science room to see the chick eggs.  When they hatch she will take us back to see them. Mrs Hoglund read us a book about baby chicks.
After a very busy morning, the boys and girls did a number 1-10:count the room.  They are getting so good at counting and writing their numbers!
The boys and girls took turns in their group to roll a dice and count the number. Then they had to roll another dice to determine which color they should use.  Once they had the number and the color and all colored the correct raindrop on their page.
Mrs Gillespie helped the boys and girls make a wind sock.  They did such a great job decorating them.  We hung them in our room.
Center Day.  The boys and girls worked in groups of 4.  They had to find upper and lower case matching letters along with a picture that begins with that letter. They had fun looking in the dried pasta for the letters.
