From the Teacher:
Mystery Reader: Thank you to Jason’s Mom who was our Mystery Reader today. She read Five Little Bunnies Hopping on a Hill. I can’t tell you how happy the class is when they see the mystery reader envelope hanging on the easel. Thank you to all our readers.
Jason and his Mom:
Thank you! Teacher Appreciation Week has been wonderful! Mrs. Conlon and I have appreciated all the wonderful cards, flowers, chocolates, coffee, and lots of extra hugs from the class. We had a delicious lunch today hosted by the PTO and the time to eat it); thank you to our recess and lunch moms.
Book Club Meetings/Assessments: I will begin end-of-the-year assessments next week so realistically reading books will come home every other day instead of every day. Rest assured even if your child does not come home with a book they are still reading a lot each day through centers and other activities.
Sight Words: I did another sight word assessment today and will send those papers home Monday. Knowing these words “instantly” makes a huge difference in reading progress. Please continue to practice with your children.
Scholastic Book Club: If you are ordering, please place your order by 8:00 p.m. so I will be able to finalize the class order. I’ll be placing one more order in June. Thank you for all your support with this program.
End-of-the-year Celebration: Please pencil in June 14th on your calendars as that is the date of our kindergarten celebration. Specific information will be sent home once everything is finalized.
Class Pet: Well the big news of the week is Crystal. She arrived on Monday and, although a lot quieter than we anticipated, she has clearly added a lot of excitement. She’s been out of her cage each day surveying the room from her perch, did a little flying , and is beginning to make some sounds. She is more talkative when it’s just Tania and I in the room, so I’m hoping next week she’ll adjust to the kindergarten buzz and the kids will get to hear more.
Have a great weekend!
