From the Teacher:

Wow it’s June and time is flying by. Only 14 1/2 days left in Kindergarten – how did that happen???  We’re going to keep working and learning and having a good time until the very last minute.  

Field Trip:  We had a wonderful trip today to the zoo. A few pictures are below.  Thank you to our chaperones:  Mrs. Coffey, Mr. Fine, Ms. Friedel, Mr. Ryan, and Mrs. Wong – thanks so much for accompanying us on our trip today.  Due to our late arrival back at school we did not have time for “voices from the classroom” for our blog, or for children to pack their home/school folders; they’ll get them back on Monday.

Research Project:  The class has been spending a lot of time researching and writing about the animal they chose for their non-fiction book.  Ask your child to share some of the interesting information they have learned about their animal. Thanks to our 4th grade book buddies who have helped out by reading non-fiction books to their kindergarten buddy.

Scholastic Book Club:  If you are ordering from our last book club of the year, please place your order tonight by  6:00 p.m.  Thank you for your support this year with this program.

Celebration:  We had our first whole-kindergarten practice yesterday on the stage for our big kindergarten celebration. I hope your children are excited about the songs they will be singing and the work they will be sharing with you.  I look forward to seeing everyone on June 14th at 10:00 a.m.

Book Fair:  Next Wednesday our class will be going to the library for a book sale.  Flyers will be sent home on Monday.  If you would like to join us, please feel free to meet us on Wednesday, June 7th from 9:00-9:30 in the Fox Hill library.

Here we are at the start of our trip!

We got very close to some amazing animals:

I was chaperoning a group at the zoo and unfortunately I didn’t run into too many of the other groups from our class to include them in pictures.

Have a wonderful weekend.
