News for the week of April 22nd

Ocean Theme

This week we will begin an ocean theme! We will be learning about the ocean and all the animals that live there. We will make ocean themed art projects and an "ocean in a bottle" wave bottle. See below for a reading of the "Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister. We will be reading the "Rainbow Fish" in class as well!

Thank You!!

I wanted to thank all parents and students for making last week's teacher appreciation days so special. I truly appreciate it and am so grateful to work with such amazing students and supportive families!

Jolly Phonics

We have learned all of the letters of the alphabet and the corresponding songs with the Jolly Phonics program! See below for a video that shows all the letter songs we have learned this school year. The rest of the year we will review letters and work more on simple word building. This week we will be sending home a fun class book called Who Let the Letters Out? with each student. Please ask your child to "read/sing" it to you. This is a good way to review letters and sounds with your child.

The morning class celebration will be held in our classroom (Room 231) from 8:00am- 9:00am and the afternoon class celebration will held at Holland's Preschool from 12:00pm- 1:00pm. We will be singing some songs, watching a slideshow of the school year, and having some treats! We hope everyone can make it! Please let me know if you have any questions.
