## Field Trip-May 12

Please email me if you are interested in being a volunteer on our trip. I need 4 adults. Because we are split into groups, you will need to be a screened volunteer. Please let me know by Weds April 29 if you are wanting to go with us and are screened. If I get more than 4 volunteers, I will put names into a hat and draw out 4. We will be gone most all of the day!

Our field trip is on May 12th to Paradise Park. We are in need of "Screened Volunteers" to chaperone this field trip because we have to be divided up into groups. If you would like to chaperone this field trip and are not on the "approved screened volunteer" list please contact the school office and they can give you more information. Please note that we are only allowed 4 chaperones per class; therefore, if more than 4 parents are approved and would like to attend I will put your names in a hat! It's a fun day and the kids have a great time.

## Kindergarten Picnic

On Friday May 1, we are inviting our Kindergarten families in to eat lunch with us! Please come from 11:35-12:15 and enjoy a picnic lunch with your kindergartner! You are receiving a note home tonight to volunteer to send in food items for our picnic. Please let us know if you are attending and how many are attending! We can't wait to see you!

## Field Day-Friday May 15

Kindergarten Field Day is Friday May 15 in the AM. A note is cominghome today looking for volunteers to help run stations. Please Mrs. Moise, Mr. Downey or me know if you are able to help out with this. Thank you!

## Math

We have been working on Unit 13. Sorting, Classifying, Counting and Categorizing Data. We have learned the word attribute. We have been sorting objects by their attributes. Please reinforce this skill at home by sorting different things at home. Laundry, toys, food or household objects are all things that can be used. Sometimes you can tell them how to sort the objects, but also let them sort and tell you what attribute they looked at to sort.

We have been doing an Author Study of Mo Willems this week. He has written books called "Knuffle Bunny", The Pigeon Books and Elephant and Piggie books. We LOVE his books and can't wait to read more next week! If you find his books at the library, check them out! The kiddos are so excited to read his books!!

## Pictures and Class Pictures

Before Spring Break, I sent home your child's sweet little pictures that were taken a few weeks ago. Please decide if you would like to keep them or not. If you want them, there is a price list inside the envelope. PLEASE return your money and/or any unwanted pictures to school as soon as possible. Thank you for your help!

Last week we sent home the class picture. If you are planning on keeping it, it is \$5. Please send that in as soon as possible or send back the class picture. Thank you!
