We have some minor changes ahead as we get closer to the end of the school year. We will not be bringing guided reading books home from now on. We will still be working on our reading in class, but we’ll cut that step out of our routine.

We are doing a backwards alphabet countdown starting today- letter Z. It even worked out that our show and share began with z. Here is the schedule for the week:

Wed- Letter Y: yellow. Everyone wear something yellow

Thurs- Letter W: Wacky Socks day. Everyone wear some wacky socks

Friday- Letter V: Video day. We’ll watch a short “video” during quiet time.

We are still planning our container garden for the window- thanks to those who sent things in!

Our end of the year field trip is scheduled for June 16 with a rain date for the 17th. We will be going to Kings Castle for the day. More information on this will be coming.

There have been some questions about an end of the year “graduation” for kindergarten. Now that we are a part of the school system, we do not have a separate celebration. We will be having an end of the year party on the 28th of June though!

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me

The school year is beginning to wind down, but we still have lots of  fun planned. We are working on a mural to go along with the book Over in the Meadow. We are also going to begin a window garden. To go along with that, we are reading the book The Carrot Seed. If you have any containers or extra seeds you’re willing to donate, please feel free to send them in!

In writing, we will be talking about how we can use our five senses to add to our descriptions.

In math we begin a brand new study of 3D shapes. This is always a fun unit to do.

Reminders:

If you have anything to donate to the “Pamper Yourself” basket for Spring Fling, please send that in at any time before May 25.

There is no school for Kindergarten on Friday as the new Kindergarten students will be in to visit. Enjoy an extra long weekend (since  Monday is a holiday too!)!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!

Mrs. Marshall

We have new visitors to our class! Tadpoles!

It was a busy week filled with concert preparation and plans for the upcoming weeks. We made sure to fit in some play and some creativity in there as well!

Full week ahead of us! Here’s what we’re focusing on:

We want to get back to really thinking about our reading and our writing, so that will be the big focus this week.

We’re starting a study on dirt and plants. We’ll be taking soil samples, comparing soil, planting a window garden with some veggies and some flowers.

In math we’re going to review all of our numeracy and pattern concepts before we move on to 3 D shapes and measuring.

On May 10, students in 1H will be collecting money for a fundraiser- they would like to “adopt” a Giant Panda. If you would like, please send in $1 for a popsicle order.

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marshall

Creativity is important in Kindergarten

Always practicing our literacy skills, either together or on our own

Working on math skills is a group effort

Our weekly walk was cold, but always a favorite activity

Good Morning!

Welcome to a crazy week in KD! Today we are preparing for our concert, and tomorrow is the Big Day! Please note that for the evening concert, the classroom will not be open until 5:30.

If you still need tickets, and didn’t order I need you to e-mail me this morning with your order.

We will be talking about dirt and gardens this month, and in math we will be reviewing our number concepts, particularly being able to recognize arrangements of a number at a glance (subitizing: like on a dice or a 10 frame).

We will be having Guided Reading, but with the schedule this week, I am not sure if we will be sending the books home this week or not.

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marshall
