Posted on

It’s hard to believe that the year has come to an end. It has been a wonderful year with a lot of growth, laughter and love! UAS has been my home for 10 years and I am so sad to be leaving.  I wish you all a wonderful and safe summer with your families.  Please keep in touch – jenmemjayali@gmail.com

Happy Father’s Day on June 18th!!

 

What We Did This Week

On Sunday, the children had Moving Up Day where they visited 3 KG2 classrooms.  They learned about the expectations for KG2, read a book, learned a counting to 100 song and did some table top activities. Mr. Fields came in to do a lesson on feelings about moving up to KG2.  We worked on our literacy skills and practiced reading and spelling cvc words, played some adding games, made a retell for 5 Little Monkeys, made some things for Father’s Day and drew and wrote about the villains in the fairy tales we have read.  On Thursday, we found all the upper case letters hidden around the room and colored in the corresponding lower case letter when we found it.


What’s Coming Up Next Week

Next week is the last week of school.  It’s hard to believe!!  We will be making puppets to retell the elephant and piggie stories we have read, we will draw and tell about our favorite things in KG1 and do some literacy centers and adding games.

I am moving back to Canada after 10 years at UAS.  This has been my home and where my children have grown up.  One of my favorite things about being here for so long is seeing the students I have taught growing up over the years.  I would love it if you kept in contact with me – my personal email address is jenmemjayali@gmail.com.

Thank you so much for your gift!!  I really appreciate it. I plan on buying a special painting with it that will remind me of my time here.  I will post a picture next week!!

What We Did This Week

This week we learned the song There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.  The children made a craft so they can retell this song as well as drew and wrote about what they think the old lady ate.  At literacy centers, the children worked at sorting by beginning sound, writing cvc words or reading. We also retold Little Red Riding Hood in our own words and put the pictures from the story in order.

 

What’s Coming Up Next Week

On Sunday, the children will have a Moving Up Day.  They will go to three KG2 classes to see what next year is going to be like.  We will be making some things for Father’s Day, finding the alphabet hidden around the room, participating in literacy centers and doing some adding.   There are no more swimming classes.

What We Did This Week

This week we read many versions of The Little Read Hen.  The children drew AND wrote about how they help at home.  They also acted out this story in groups.  They are doing amazing jobs acting out stories, remembering their lines and using different voices for the characters.  We read Pete’s Four Groovy Buttons and looked at beginning subtraction.  The children had to tell stories about Pete’s button.  We used the language, “How many are left?”  We had literacy centers where the children worked on beginning, middle or ending sounds, reading cvc words or reading BOB books.

 

What’s Coming Up Next Week

Next week we will be learning the song There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly.  We will be reading different versions of this song and doing many activities related to it.  At centers we will be working at literacy centers, making some things for Father’s Day, continuing to work on beginning subtraction and putting pictures from a story in order and retelling the story in their own words.
