The end of the year is coming quick and we have a few fun things planned! Make sure to SAVE THE DATES!

Friday, June 8th: Donuts with Dads. Dads, if you are able, please plan on joining us at 8:15 on this date for a quick donut with your child and a presentation of a special Father's Day gift for you! 

Monday, June 11th: We are having a fun and relaxing day in the classroom. Come in your PJs and bring your favorite book and your favorite board game. We will have fun reading and playing all day! We will also celebrate summer birthdays on this day. If you were unable to celebrate your child's birthday this year because it is in the summer, please let me know! 

Tuesday, June 12th: We are having a school FIELD DAY with all of kindergarten, first grade, and even our TK friends! Room-moms are hard at work planning fun games for all the students to rotate through all day long. Our class is in charge of the THREE-LEGGED RACE :) We are asking for as much parent involvement as we can to make this a special time for your kindergartners. If you are able to help out, please see our room-mom, Mrs. Atchley or sign up on our Classroom Clipboard. SIBLINGS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THIS DAY. Please take advantage of this early notice and make arrangements for your little ones if you are able to join us and help support our field day activities. You will also want to wear a lot of sunscreen and clothes that you can get wet!! Thank you so much for your support!

Wednesday, June 13th: We will have a very special last day of school KINDERGARTEN CLASSROOM CELEBRATION on this day. We invite you to join us at 10:30 as we read our last book together as a class, look through our memory books, and watch our "Kindergarten Movie". We also have a special song prepared.

We will continue to send home book bags, but we are all done with fluency passages and Reading A-Z book reading. We are really looking forward to enjoying our last few weeks of reading together by self-selecting our favorite books from the classroom library.

What Are We Learning This Week??: 

Sight Words: VERY, EVERY, GROW, DOWN.

Letter Teams: There are no more kindergarten letter teams! Please review ALL sounds and letter teams learned so you are prepared for first grade! 

Reading: We will read books about parts of plants.

Writing:  We are adding details to our stories. Some of us are even writing eight sentences now for Step Up to Writing, adding details after every "main idea" sentence.

Math: We will continue to work on our Excel worksheets, our number bonds, 100's Club, Check-Off Challenge, and all of our math concepts learned this year. 

Leadership: Forgiveness.
