Dear Families,

     Welcome to Carver Pre-Kindergarten.  I look forward to meeting all of you and having a great year with you and your child.                                                                            

     I grew up in Enid and attended Enid schools.  I graduated from William Woods College in Missouri with an Elementary education degree.  I later received an Early Childhood degree.  I have taught for 31 years in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten.  I am married with three children.  

     We stay busy in Pre-Kindergarten.  I will send a weekly newsletter with your child to help keep you updated.  Our curriculum in Reading focuses on the letters and their sounds.  We learn songs, poems, and read lots of books with each new letter.  We will focus on a lot of literacy and phonics activities.

     Our Math focuses on shapes, sorting, counting, measurement, patterning, and graphing.  We will use many manipulatives (Math tools) and a variety of activities to learn Math.

     Science and Social Studies will be included in our Themes.

     Please be sure to check your child's backpack every day.  This is my major communication link with you and I will do my best to keep you informed of what is going on at Carver Pre-Kindergarten.

     Again, I look forward to having your little one in my class and I hope that we can work together to make this a very special year in your child's life.

Mrs. Dodds
