Bio

Hi my name is Marianne Catalino and I am very excited about teaching Pre-K.  We implement Project Construct in our classroom.  The children participate in various learning centers throughout the day, which enhances cognitive and higher level thinking.  The focus of Project Construct is learning through play.  I look forward to seeing your child blossom this year.  Please feel free to visit our classroom as we have an open door policy.  

I implement ABCMouse for Communication Arts and Math.  I also use Day by Day Thematic Units into our daily work.  We are working on letter and sound recognition, writing and recognizing numbers from 1-10, learning number words from 1-10, and the four basic shapes.

We are also learning about the calendar - days of the week, months.  The calendar also teaches the children even/odd numbers, clock, colors, rhyming words, sight words, greater/less than, and patterns.
