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!




Black and White Day!  The boys and girls did a great job thinking of different t things that were black or white.
This afternoon we talked about rhyming words.  The boys and girls listened to the story Snowmen at Night.  They listed the rhyming words from the story.  They each made their own snowman!
Snowball names!  The boys and girls used white “snowball” stickers and covered their names.  Great fine motor practice.
How do Penguin feathers stay dry in the cold?  The feathers have a waxy covering.  The boys and girls colored one paper feather with a crayon.  They were given another plain paper feather.  They were able to observe which feather stayed drier when sprayed with water.
Write the Room.  The boys and girls searched the room for lower case letters.  They wrote them on their sheet and then they were challenged with writing the corresponding upper case letter.
Mrs Faith came in this morning and read a belated Birthday Book for Charlie and Jack.  The book This Is A Ball.  The boys and girls really enjoyed this story!  Thank you Mrs Faith.
Scruffy will be spending the next week with Cole.  We look forward to hearing about their adventures!
Scruffy had a fun week  with Chiara and her family!  They went to the hairdresser, played at home and Scruffy even met Chiara’s cute puppy Clay!
The boys and girls made a cute snowman craft.  Great job cutting and putting it all together!
Penguin write the room. The boys and girls looked around the room for words that described a penguin.  When they found the words they had to match it to the picture on their paper  and write the word on their paper.
Our snow crystals are beautiful!  Overnight the crystals grew on our snowflake shaped pipe cleaners.   The boys and girls used magnifying glasses to examine the crystals that formed.
Mr McGhee came in and read the class 2 books for Olivia’s Half Birthday.  Thank you Mr McGhee!
