Chicks and Leprechauns!

Its been a fun week learning about and visiting with our chicks. We wrote a class book about what we learned, How to Take Care of Eggs and Chicks. Speaking of "how to", we worked on choosing a "how to" topic for our next published book in Writing Workshop. We will work on books next week and finish them after break. You'll get to see them at spring conferences coming soon.

We were surprised to find a mess in our room Wednesday afternoon when we returned from art. Since it was surely the work of leprechauns, we built a trap to see if we could catch one. On Thursday morning we we found some leprechaun "gold" left there instead!

Rhyming word chunks

We are learning about rhyming word chunks and word families. We know rhyming words often end with the same word chunk. We can use word chunks to help us when writing or reading. Ask your child about Mr. Nat and Mr. Vet and the 'at' and 'et' word families.

Spring Pizza Party

Our spring break party will be a pizza party picnic and playground event with all of Kindergarten. We are asking $2 a family to cover pizza and a treat. We won't need any other donations or helpers for this event.
