We will have a (very casual) JK Breakfast on Tuesday, June 4th from 8:30-9:30 am in the JK classroom. We have been working on a slide show for you to see photos from the year. The children will have portfolios to share with you too. We might even sing a few songs! Please let me know if you will be attending.
The Spring Sing was a big success and I was so excited to see them all perform so well! They love music class and sang so joyfully.
This week we are talking about everything we have been learning all year to be "Kindergarten Ready".
Each child chose two cards with summer time words on them to use in a paragraph while writing a journal page. I loved hearing about the fish who found sunglasses! Their minds are so creative, and it's so fun to provide them with a beginning and see where they go with it!
We played letter bingo with Zoo Phonics and practiced writing in our word books.
We are working on the scaling of our letters and making sure our upper case letters are bigger than our lower case letters. We are working on spacing and always beginning at the top. Please practice the correct letter and number formation this summer so when starting Kindergarten the good habit will carry over.
Math & Science:
We played a game to increase number awareness while working on our fine motor skills. Each child drew a cone with a number and then used patterns to count scoops of ice cream to line up on top using pom pons.
We played a few different math games this week. We made pattern ice cream cones while counting teen numbers.
We are making observations of our bean plants we planted in the Roycemore garden. The children are excited to see our sprouts grow into big plants.
We are working on finishing our portfolios to give to parents at our JK breakfast the last week of school The breakfast will be from 8:30-9:30 am. We will have some breakfast items and juice and coffee, along with a slide show presentation. The children will sing a few songs for you too!
We made rainbow pictures and talked about the science behind the colors in rainbows. We used pastels on black paper.
Next Wednesday will be our last day of school, where you will drop off and we will load busses to Sunset Park at 10 am. You are welcome to meet us there and take your children home with you after we have lunch. We will have regular dismissal if they would like to ride the bus back to school.
Have a great week!
