Make sure you send it back to school one last time on Monday with your child’s Teddy Bear worksheet. Then, I will send it back home on Tuesday with their Data Notebook that they have been working on all year. Please take time to snuggle up with your child and celebrate all their great learning throughout the year!
I am also sending home a purple paper with graduation information for Friday. Thursday is the LAST DAY for kindergarten. Graduation is on the following day, Friday, May 19th.
TEDDY BEAR PICNIC
Don’t forget to send your child to school on Tuesday with their favorite Teddy Bear and a blanket for our Teddy Bear Picnic (it will be at our school during our regular lunchtime). They can choose to eat school lunch or bring their lunch from home.
We had 2 more community helpers come to our class this week. Avery’s mom is a Loan Officer at America First Credit Union. She taught us about how she helps people when they need money for things like cars, houses, and even fun things like ATVs and boats.
Mr. Boughton is a teacher at the school who brought his daughters service dog to our class. He talked about how he had to go to school in California to learn how to train and take care of her dog. We learned that her dog also had to go to school to learn how to be super proactive to be able to do her job. Wow!
Our kids already have their sights set on what they want to be when they grow up! Take a look…
Oh boy, our zoo field trip was a fun day! Thank you to all of the parents that came and helped chaperone and play with us! Here are a few of the wonderful things we saw and did. More great pictures will be on our class DVD that your child will be getting this week at graduation!
Library Reading Eagle Party
Thanks to our wonderful librarians – Mrs. Doiser & Mrs. Briggs we had so much fun reading books and enjoying a treat on our blankets and pillows at the reading party last week! Take a look…
Study Buddy Class
We are so grateful to our 4th grade Study Buddy class! They have read with us every single week this year. To show our appreciation the kids wrote a book about their buddy. It was based on the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We called our books The Very Hungry Study Buddy. This week the kindergartners will present their book to their buddy as a thank you. We love our study buddies!
Our Study Buddy also made a book about us! Thank you Mrs. VanPatten for sharing your wonderful class with us this year!
As you enjoy a fabulous summer don’t forget to have your child spend some time on Raz Kids during the months of June and July. I will not be monitoring it or giving out stars. The first week of August I will be removing our class names in preparation for the incoming kindergarten class.
Thank you for the precious gift of sharing your children with me this year! My first year as a full-day kindergarten teacher has been an adventure I will never forget! I have loved it and loved seeing what great heights they have achieved. We can do hard things! They have become readers, writers, mathematicians, and know what it means to be proactive! Have a fabulous summer with your kiddo!
