Kindergarten Weekly Update
We are winding down to our last few weeks in Kindergarten! It’s hard to believe! As the class has progressed through the school year, we reflected on how much the children have accomplished this year. They learned the letter-sound correspondence for each letter of the alphabet and can decode hundreds of words. Their knowledge of the world, comprehension, and vocabulary skills have grown tremendously through the texts that you’ve read to them and those that they can now read themselves. With this solid foundation, your “super kids” are well on their way to being successful readers and writers.The Kindergartners have grown so much and we are confident that they will be successful in First Grade.
Here is the latest news on our events:
Our End of Year Party will take place at Fairyland on Wednesday, June 5th. You will receive a permission slip next week for the field trip; Please sign and return ASAP so we can assign our drivers and chaperones. Don’t forget to include the fees for the event. Parents will need to provide car seats and we would prefer drivers who have larger cars.Times for the field trip will be announced on the field trip form.
Our Musical Production of “Friendly Neighborhood Helpers” will take place on Tuesday June 4th at 9:30AM.. We have most of the props and minor costumes needed for the play. We will notify you if anything further is needed. We will be assigning parts this week and sending home the words for the song your child will need to know.
The Guesstimation Jar goes to Jacob.
