This Week:

  • The rain didn’t stop us from having a great time with our buddies on Tuesday.  The treats you all sent in were perfect!  Thank you! The kindergartners and 8th graders enjoyed their picnic time together.  Check out the PICTURES!
  • Boy are these kindergartners a talented bunch!  God gave each child unique gifts and talents and we enjoyed seeing them share those gifts with us on Thursday.  We saw singers, artists, gymnasts, swimmers, hula hoopers, readers and more! The children gained confidence when they performed in front of their friends and learned how to be good a respectful, encouraging audience. Check out the PICTURES!
  • We released Mrs. Mahr’s butterflies earlier this week. We had so much fun observing their life cycle!

Next Week:

We will be busy practicing for our kindergarten celebration.  We’re sounding REALLY good.  You will be so PROUD!

Literacy:

  • We will continue our kindergarten memory books.
  • We will complete the final pages of our kindergarten journal!  We can’t wait for you to see them!
  • We will do re-reads of some of the “welcome to kindergarten” books we read the very first week of school.  We will do a lot of reminiscing and ‘making connections.’ A trip down memory lane is so much fun! We have grown!
  • We will finish literacy assessments.

Math:

  • Review and assessment: addition, subtraction, time, money, measurement, 3d and 2d shapes, counting by 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, graphing, number writing and recognition.

Religion:

  • We will take part in a little “hunt” over at church, looking for different items like the tabernacle, altar, statues, St. Francis Chapel and more.  These are all areas of our church that we have visited this year. Have your child show you these things when you go to Mass as a family this summer! We will learn one more song in kindergarten –“Welcome to His house!”
