June 3 – June 7
I apologize in advance for the long blog post, but there are lots of announcements for the end of year.
This week we read books by Julia Donaldson. Among them were the Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child and Stick Man. Our class continued to practice retelling stories. Thank you again for the donation of props. Our class LOVES using them.
CENTERS: In centers we created our own number stories. Students filled in the missing beginning or ending sound in words, created Gruffalo masks, and matched representations of numbers in different ways.
BOOK ORDERS: Scholastic orders are due on Sunday June 10th. My recommendations are…
- -Any of the Dr. Seuss books (Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax)
- -The Very Hungry Caterpillar
- -The Pigeon books by Mo Willems
- -No David!**** This is a class favorite.
- –Giraffes Can’t Dance and Rumble in the Jungle are also available individually for 36AED if you do not want to purchase the pack. (just write them down on the order form)
- -Any nonfiction books about animals, space, science
*If you have any questions please email me.
RAMADAN FRIDGE- We visited the Ramadan Fridge this week and filled it with lots of yummy food and drinks for the workers. Thank you for sending in items to support this special activity during the Ramadan season.
LIBRARY BOOKS- All library books should have been returned by now. If your child still has a book at home, PLEASE return to school ASAP, so that fines will not be charged for lost or missing books!
SHOW AND TELL- Next week (June 10-14) is the LAST WEEK FOR SHOW AND TELL.
PORTFOLIOS- Your child will bring home their portfolio next Monday, June 11. These are complete and are yours to keep! We hope you enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed making them!
MOVING UP DAY- We will visit the KG2 classrooms, next Tuesday, June 12. We will begin promptly at 8:30, so please have your child at school by 8:15! Your child should WEAR THEIR ORANGE CLASS T-SHIRT. Parents will not attend this.
EOY CELEBRATION- We are preparing for our End of Year Celebration for students and parents, on Tuesday, June 19, starting promptly at 11:30 in the MPH. We also have a song for Dads, so please try to attend if possible. We realize that some families will not be here as they will be traveling early, and it’s okay. Maybe just have those conversations with your child, that as we practice our songs in class, etc, they will understand that some people will not be in attendance. (It’s just the way it is at the end of the year).
Food for Celebration- We are asking parents to contribute food for the EOY Celebration and we have assigned food lists for each class! PLEASE BRING THE FOOD TO THE MPH AND PLACE ON THE TABLES AROUND 11:20. WE WILL BEGIN OUR PROGRAM PROMPTLY AT 11:30!
- I would like for my parents to bring one tray of a main entree. For example: individual size pizzas, chicken nuggets, small sandwiches, etc. NO NUTS!
EID- There has been no formal announcement yet regarding the EID holiday. Most likely we will be off school 1-2 days. We will notify you when we receive the announcement.
LEAVING – If your plans for your child’s last day has changed from what you have told me already, PLEASE LET ME KNOW, so that we can have everything prepared and say our proper goodbyes!
