We all looked so cute as fireflies last Wednesday; so many of the children had creative costumes on!!
We begin our week on Tuesday. We will make flags in honor of Memorial and Flag day; we also discuss the importance of these holidays.
We continue to learn about sea life, and I borrowed some DVD's from the library to enhance our learning.
I'll be reading some pirate stories, however my class is not having a dress as a pirate day!
Wednesday we will walk over to McKinley Ave School to see our book buddies. We will read together after lunch, and see what a third grade classroom is like. We already wrote them thank you notes for reading with us this year.
This is the final week that SSR books will come home for homework. We will continue to read here at school daily, but the books have to be counted, repaired, and packed away. Be sure all books are returned to school by Friday!
Our new word wall words are: some, how, made.
There are 2 more listening games; one more simple and one reviewing skills.
We are having show practice each day now at 2:30. The children have learned many songs and actions; now combining it with 7 other classes takes lots of practice.
We're getting close to finishing our All About Me book, and then I must bind them all; they will come home the last week of school.
I am no longer conducting reading groups, as I need that time to complete final assessments on your child.
Next Friday's events will be lots of fun for the kindergartners. Following the 9:45 show, all parents, or grandparents, and younger siblings only, should come for field day activities and lunch. This event is held rain or shine. If it's raining we will be in the gym; if the weather is good, we will be outside behind our hallway 3 wing, inside the fenced area. You should bring lunch for everyone in your family. Weather permitting, we will eat at the garden tables. If you cannot attend, be sure your child has a lunch to bring outside since it will be difficult for us to buy their lunch since we are all outside. Everyone will come back into my classroom after lunch for a special surprise. The children will share their journals with you and you will take them home, as well as our gift buckets! A special thanks to all parents who contributed and Mrs. Nascimento who detailed them with names and Mrs. Powell who helped to wrap them! You may also take your child out of school early, it will be about 1:30. Usually there are only 1 or 2 children remaining! There will not be any other end of year party.
