Weekly News: The next TWO weeks :)


News:

I am giving you TWO weeks of news and plans since I will be getting married THIS WEEKEND!!! I will be taking Thursday, Friday, and Tuesday off to spend time with family, but I will be leaving you with the terrific substitute, Mrs. Metzler. I also wanted to let you know of all of our fun end-of-the-year events in advance, so grab a cup of coffee, because this is a LONG ONE :) 

Your community service projects have been fantastic! I have enjoyed watching your presentations on how you have been serving your community these past few months. It makes me so happy to see a class full of leaders!

The very last book order will be sent home this week. If you would like to order books for summer, now is the perfect time. Thank you so much for all of your orders all year long. By ordering online, you have helped build up our classroom library!

The last day for electives is Friday, May 31 and the last day of tutoring is this Wednesday, May 22. 

NO SCHOOL next Monday, May 27th due to the Memorial Day Holiday. Enjoy the time off with your families. 

You may have heard your child talking about "Lunch Bunch". This is a reward for those students who have been saving their "money" all year.  Students that have earned and saved up to one dollar {for excellent behavior in the classroom} are invited to have pizza with Miss Reeve after school on Friday, May 31. 



End of the Year Events:  
The end of the year is coming quick and I wanted to let you know {IN ADVANCE!} what we have planned! Make sure to SAVE THE DATES!

Friday, June 7th: Donuts with DadsDads, if you are able, please plan on joining us at 8:10 on this date for a quick donut with your child and a presentation of a special Father's Day gift for you! 

Monday, June 10th: We are having a fun and relaxing day in the classroom. Come in your PJs and bring your favorite stuffed animal. We will have fun reading our favorite library books and playing our favorite games 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 and we can celebrate!

Tuesday, June 11th: We are having a school FIELD DAY with all of kindergarten, first grade, and even our TK friends! We will rotate through fun centers outside and we will also have a special assembly to attend. If you are able to help out, please see our room-mom, Tammy. 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 12th: 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.



What Are We Learning THE NEXT TWO Weeks?:
Sight Words: VERY, EVERY, ABOVE, BELOW, ALWAYS {May 20-24}; FALL, WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, WEATHER {May 27-31}

Letter Team: There are NO new letter teams! Remember to practice ALL letter teams so that you are well-prepared for first grade. 

Reading:
 The next few weeks, we will continue reading and learning all about plants. We are learning the different parts of plants and also what plants need to survive. We will also begin reading about different kinds of weather and how weather changes through our four seasons. 


Writing: The students have been having so much fun with our writing center lately. We have been writing lists, cards, stories, and even making books! We will also begin working on a special end of the year writing project. 

Math: We are having so much fun playing math games that help us with our mental math, greater and less than, number sense, and many other concepts learned this year. 

Leadership: SERVICE.
