It’s the last week in May. You may think things will be winding down, but some things are just beginning! Like, our writing and reading have both just exploded! If you could read all of the books that we have been writing, you would see how far we have come! And in our reading, we are putting together all of the concepts we have been working on all year-it’s so exciting to see! This is the best time of year to be in kindergarten.
Here’s what we’re up to this week:
Today we are making our “Hair Heads”. We have a big book that shows us how to do this, so we are going to see how easy it is to follow directions (also, it is a great example of writing a “How To” book).
In math we are learning about 3D shapes, and enjoying some of the fun activities that go along with this.
We will be sending guided reading books home this week, look for them Tuesday in your child’s book bag.
Please remember there is No School FRIDAY! for kindergarten. All other grades have school.
Here are some more notes:
