Greeting Parents! Today we counted down how many more “Kindergarten days” there were. 22. Twenty-Two. Can you believe it? Only 22 more days! It’s incredible how the time has flown, and how much your children have grown this year. I am so proud to be able to call them “My Kids.” Thank you for that opportunity.
This week in KD we will be observing the plants that we’ve planted, to see how they grow. We will be reading books about seeds, and gardens, and growing things. We will finish up our unit on 3D shapes. Here’s a link to our new favourite song on 3D Shapes:
3 D Shapes
I’m sure you’ll be grateful for that one hehehehe!
We will also continue with our reading, our writing, and our Fundations. I just want to reiterate that five minutes a night can make such a huge difference in the way your child retains the information they receive from the day, and to know that both home and school care about what they’re learning can make such a powerful impact!
If you haven’t paid for next years student fees, I would like to encourage you to do so. $40 may seem like a lot of money to pay upfront, but please believe me when I tell you it is a deal! If you don’t have the fee paid by May 31, then you will be responsible for your child’s school supplies in September.
Our field trip is scheduled for June 21, with a rain date of June 22. Kings Castle is a fun day for us all- lots of space to run around, things to climb on, and a walk by the river.
Before closing I’d like to share one more picture with you. Today, I asked the students what they’ve learned in Kindergarten. This is what they had to say:
There’s some pretty profound things in there. We have some deep thinkers coming out of KD.
