Amazing how time flies. We’re finishing up some assessments, getting everything all put together, and a in a few short days this school year will be over. I am sure most of you are just wondering where the time has gone! We will be sending home permission slips for our field trip to Kings Castle tomorrow (Tuesday). It is June the 22 (rain date is the 23), and the only cost is $1.50 for ice cream. If there are any parents who would like to meet us there, please feel free to do so! It’s a fun day of playing outside, having a picnic, and just enjoying nature.

We had a special visitor today! Parker Grimmer, Director of the Public Schools Branch was in to read to us!

We have finished up studying about plants, and for the next two weeks will be reading stories about sunshine, summer, and outdoors. In math we will be having fun with some measurement. Even though we’re winding down, we still have books to read and stories to write!

How We Play June 2, 2017

I know I’ve been a bit remiss in updating the blog, but I wanted to show you the great work and play we are doing. It’s that time of year when I start to see all of the pieces that they’ve learned over the year start to come together, and it’s amazing to me. To watch them writing because they just have a story they want to tell, to see them creating in the art area and having the freedom to really extend their work beyond just paper and crayons. Your children have come so far from September!

 

Look out world! Here we come!

Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend, I know I enjoyed more than a few lobsters! We’re now on the downward slide for kindergarten, which is so hard to believe since it seems like it was just September not that long ago! But your children are doing great, and ready for summer and grade 1.

Not a lot to write about this week- We’ll be reading Quiet in the Library, still working on our reading and our writing, and still learning about 3D shapes in math.

A BIG reminder: No School for Kindergarten only on Friday! as that is the day next years kindergarteners come to visit! Time is passing by so quickly!

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

The first two days of this week are all tied up with the Spring Concert. We are putting in the final pieces today, and tomorrow will be the final touches to the final pieces. Reminder that the concert times are 1:10 and 6:00. Please do not come any early than 5:30 as the classrooms will be closed until then. Bring your child straight to the classroom. We will go up when it is our turn to do our part. Please stay in the gym until all of the classes have performed. There are many kindergarten classes this year, so we are taking turns 2-3 classes at a time to perform. This will make it much easier for you to see your child!

If you do not have tickets, Please Contact The School Immediately. The concert is free, but you will need a ticket to get into the performance.

On Wednesday and Thursday we will resume our regularly scheduled routines! We will stick with the book 911 Quack, and will continue to work on our reading and writing in class.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

This post deals with our upcoming Spring Concert, May 2 at 1:10 pm and 6pm.

If you have not turned in your ticket request sheets, please do so by TUESDAY! No later or we may not be able to accommodate you and your family.

Also remember that the shows are in the afternoon and the evening. All children are expected to be there for both.

Unless I have specifically contacted you, please have your child dressed in black and/or yellow clothes.

 

The rest of the week is going along great! We’ve been really focused on our reading and writing. Our effort is paying off!

I hope everyone had a restful long weekend. It’s hard to believe there is only a week and a half left of April. The time is starting to really fly by! As I’ve been observing the class in the past few weeks I have been so impressed with the way the are starting to look out for each other, how they are beginning to work together, and to problem solve most situations. This is the time of year to look around and think, “Yes. They’ve got it!” And “got it” they have.

Here’s what we’re working on this week:
Our book is called Rosie’s Walk, about a hen who goes for a walk around the barnyard followed by a pesky fox. This is also the book we are doing our Spring Concert around, so we have had extra fun with this story.

We are working on silent reading during Guided Reading time. The class really enjoyed book bag.s today- each group is given 4 books in their book bag to read over. Some are ones we’ve read already, and some are new, but very easily read. This will give us great practice for putting our reading strategies all together.

For our sight words we will be finishing up he, she, me, and will add with. That should cover all of our sight words for the year. From here on out, we will continue to review letters, letter sounds, and sight words.

In writing we are finishing up some books, and beginning new ones. We are emphasizing what a story is, and how to write with a “bold beginning”, a “magnificent middle” and an “excellent ending”.

In math we will finish up number sense and continue to review patterns.

We continue to encourage being “every day heroes” and this week we will talk about the Earth and how we can take care of it.

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marshall
