April 13, 2018

Thank you to all those who were able to come in for Parent/Teacher Conferences. It was good to see you and we enjoyed being able to share your child's progress with you!

Young children often need to get up and move throughout the school day. Doing creative movement activities is a great way to allow the students this much needed time when we are in the classroom. We love to play Listen and Move to give the students a chance to get their "wiggles" out while working on their listening skills at the same time.

We learned about syllables in our Weekly Reader last week and now the students love "clapping out" syllables in each other's names and in familiar words. 

We have been so busy this week practicing for our big Olympic Celebration Day on Wednesday, April 25th! Don't forget to RSVP and sign up to bring a dish to share! The link to the Sign-Up Genius invite is here. Thanks in advance for your help and generosity! Everyone is looking forward to sampling dishes from around the world!

The boys and girls are working so hard on their lessons during the week. They love to learn new things and review what they have learned.

  • Please remember to send in a spring change of clothes for your child. We will send home their current set when these arrive.
  • Due to a scheduling conflict, we will be practicing for our Olympic Celebration first thing in the morning every day next week. Please try to make sure your child is on time for school each day!
  • Show and Tell next Wednesday will be "something that you can recycle." We will recycle these items in school for Earth Day!

We finally made it outside to play!

The children found a caterpillar and named
him Max. They built a home for him and
tried to feed him. ❤
