Ms. King's Kindergarten

May 2, 2016

Weekly Update

It is hard to believe it is May already, and that we have less than 30 days left in kindergarten. Last week, we worked on writing "how to" stories, and they are turning out great! We will be putting the final touches on them and sharing them with another class this week. We've all planted bean seeds that we will be observing, and we're counting down the days until our field trip on May 11th! Check the bottom of this newsletter or your child's folder for the May snack calendar. Have a great week! -Ms. King
