Weekly News: April 14-17


There is no school on Friday! I hope you enjoy the Easter weekend with your families!

We had so much fun at the Children's Museum of the Desert. Thank you to our many wonderful chaperones. The students all had a great time. 

We will be having fun Easter Centers in class on Thursday from 10:30-12:00 and need 2 more parent helpers. If you are available to volunteer, please let me know! 

Save The Date: We will be having a Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 9 from 11:00-12:30. More information to come. I wanted to let you know early case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!

The due date for the Community Service Projects has been set for our class: Presentations will be due the week of May 12-16. Presentations in the past have included: posterboards, journals, slideshows, books, and pictures documenting your 6-8 hours of community service. Please visit our Community Service tab on the side if you have any questions.

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Letter Team: 
 EA (we are learning that EA can make THREE sounds - long E like in SEASON, short E like in WEATHER, and long A like in BREAK). 

Reading: 
We will read books about bunnies (and other spring animals) and fun Easter books. 

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 our new math unit focusing on addition and subtraction. 

Leadership: Our leadership theme for the month of April is WISDOM. Our kindergarten definition of wisdom is having a wise attitude, belief, or course of action.
