Summer Edition

Thank you!

Families,

What an amazing year we had in kindergarten! I am just blown away by all of the growth both academically and physically (some of them are almost taller than I am.) I will miss this little group of 16 kiddos. It is bittersweet to see them move on in their journey, but also sad that we won't be together everyday in our "classroom family." I will miss seeing those faces enter the room each morning and hearing about their adventures outside of school and with your families. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing- I love nothing more :)

Sweet Summertime

It is hard to believe that summer is already here. Your little one has worked so hard this year and we want to maintain all of these great skills throughout the summer.


Researchers have found that summer is the number one cause of achievement deficits between students. Struggling readers must work to improve their reading skills over the summer; failing to do so puts them further behind.


Here are some resources you can use to help your child maintain their skills during the summertime.


Reading-

*Storia - Free online leveled reading! go to storiaschool.com Enter class code: mcdo50

have your child enter their name and then their password (email me if you need it, I have it!)

*Write Miss McDonald a letter! I provided an envelope with my address on it in your child's end of the year gift. Let me know if you need my address. I love having a pen pal!
