Weekly News: April 9-13


Electives and Success Academy will resume this week! 

This week we are excited to start learning about life cycles as we study the life cycle of a tadpole becoming a frog.

Our last kindergarten field trip is scheduled for Friday, May 18th. We will be going to the Lewis Family Playhouse Theater in Rancho Cucamonga to see "Frederick the Mouse". We will leave the school by bus first thing in the morning and we will be returning by dismissal. We will be providing snacks for each child, so you will not need to bring a snack (or a folder!) on this day. Because we have already purchased tickets for the show in advance, we unfortunately cannot take any extra parent chaperones. Thank you for your understanding. Permission slips will be coming home soon. We are looking forward to a fun last kindergarten field trip together! 

Save The Date: We will be having a very special Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 11th from 11:00-12:30. More information to come. I wanted to let you know early in case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. The school childcare fills up quickly on this day and is on a first come first serve basis.  I encourage you to find childcare for your little ones since this is a special celebration for mommies and their kindergarten student.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!

Our due date is quickly approaching for those Community Service projects. THREE MORE WEEKS! These will be due the first week of May - They will need to be turned in before May 11th to qualify for the Leadership Banquet. Please see our Community Service Tab for more information and feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: GOES, DOES, YES, NOT, WILL.

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 frogs as we learn the life cycle of a tadpole.

Writing: We are learning to create THINKING MAPS to help with our writing. This week, we will use our knowledge of frogs and tadpoles to create a flow map, which sequences the steps of how a tadpole becomes a frog. We will learn how to use this flow map to help with our writing. 
 
Math: We will continue to work hard on decomposing and composing numbers within ten, as well as addition and subtraction, number bonds, and shapes. 

Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
