In Pre-Kindergarten, we practice following the rules and routines of our classroom and school.
We practice social skills such as kindness, sharing and compromising. We will increase our pre-literacy skills by learning an abundance of vocabulary, practice the alphabet names and sounds, rhyming and alliteration.
We will also explore art, science and math while learning to be a member of a community.
If you are interested in registering for the Pre-Kindergarten program you can start by contacting the Student Placement Center at 651-632-3700.
The SPPS Pre-Kindergarten Program is rooted in a deep commitment to standards-based education, and in efforts to align with SPPS' Strategic Plan, Strong Schools, Strong Communities (SSSC), has created a working draft of a research-based, standard-driven curriculum with a scope and sequence for clear expectations of what teachers will cover in instruction.
I began my career teaching E.C.F.E/School Readiness and then made the transfer over to Pre-K. I graduated from Saint Paul Public Schools (Go Como Cougars!!) and went on to receive an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and a Masters degree in K-12 education from Winona State.
Hi I am Mrs. Facklam. I am part of Minnesota Reading Corps. I enjoy doing some of the assessment and literacy work with Mrs. Decker, along with having fun with the kids.
