Welcome to Pre-Kinder
Hello everyone! My name is Maribel Franco and I am delighted to be your child’s Pre-Kinder teacher. Our objectives this year are to help better prepare your child for kindergarten emotionally, socially, and academically in a positive and nurturing environment. Some of the skills focused on in Pre K are:
Reading Readiness: listening to and following directions, left to right progression when reading and writing, letter identification, letter sounds, and rhyming.
Math Concepts: patterning, sorting, one to one correspondence, greater than/less than, shapes, size sequencing, number recognition, number writing, route counting, simple addition and substation.
Fine Motor Skills: manipulating small objects, tracing, painting, coloring, pencil grip, correct letter formation (writing), and cutting.
Science: Measuring, weighing, simple experiments and trying to predict the outcomes, open exploration.
Awareness of self: respect of self and others as well as our school community, waiting, one’s turn to speak and play, and completing daily tasks.
I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor’s degree and I am certified to teach Bilingual Education EC-4 grade. This will be my 5th year of teaching.
