Muffins in May

Thank you to all the special guest that came today to celebrate with us. We hope you enjoyed your time here. We loved making memories in our classroom with you! Happy Mother's Day!

ABC's of Kindergarten

I like to wrap up the end of the year with the ABC's of kindergarten. Each day of the last 26 days are assigned a special activity connected to the letter of the day. We will start with the letter A and work our way to Z on the very last day. Some of these activities require that kiddos bring something in. I will send home a sheet with all the details. Thank in advance you for your support in making our last 26 days together memorable and fun!

This week:

We have continued our study of Fairy Tales in language arts this week. Students are now easily able to identify some of the key elements that make-up a fairy tale. Together we enjoyed, Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. It was exciting to see kiddos transfer what they have learned about fairy tales into their own writing this week as well.

The sight words for next week are: when, out & went

If your child has not mastered the sight words for quarters 1-3 please practice them often in addition to the 4th quarter words.

This week students took NWEA assessments. I am so proud of the growth they have shown. As soon as the reports are complete with district information I will send the information home.

We had the opportunity this week to collaborate with Mrs. Muegge's 3rd grade class to use the Night Zookeeper App to do a creative writing activity. The students were super excited to create a fictional character and use what they have learned to write a story about them.

It has been a great week, thank you for sharing your children with me!
