No regular school on Wed. or Thu. Your child should come with you for your scheduled conference time. They do not need to wear their uniform. Remember, they are the teacher and will be showing you all of the wonderful things they can do at school.
Next Sunday (April 29th) we will begin PE as our special class. We will have regular PE on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. They should wear their PE clothes and sports shoes.
On Monday and Wednesday, we will be swimming. Be sure to send a change of clothes, pool shoes, a towel, swim cap and goggles if they want them.
We will swim on the following PE days.
- April 30
- May 2
- May 7
- May 9
- May 14
We will not swim during Ramadan.
Sight word tests will come home today. The children have all made amazing progress. Remember that there are two dates and two colors highlighted. One is the pretest (Feb.) and the other is the posttest (this week). If there is only 1 color that means this was the pretest and they will be retested at a later date.
If they have finished all 4 lists (A-D) they are done with the kindergarten sight words. They can continue to practice reading them, spelling them and using them in their writing. If your child still has some words left to read on the lists, continue to work on them at home and I will test them before the end of the year.
If you want to get a jump start to the grade 1 words, you may go to the website, http://www.mrsperkins.com/dolch.htm . Here you will find word lists, flashcards, activities and even a PowerPoint where it will flash the words on your computer at 4 second intervals. Great for summer practice! (even lists for your older children).
I am looking forward to seeing you and your child on Wed. or Thu. You will be amazed at what great students (and teachers) they are!
