Class Update May 7 Week

Greetings Families,
We have less than 3 weeks to go! We have been celebrating some “almost” birthdays and our last weeks with each other.
Here are some details about this week (some may be repetitive):
Announcements
*Thank you for completing and sending in your feedback on the classroom surveys. Thus far, 4 out of 15 have been returned. Please return them by this Friday, May 11.
*PLEASE KEEP A CHANGE OF CLOTHES IN YOUR CHILD’S BAG UNTIL SCHOOL ENDS!!!
*Please double check your child’s school bag to make sure toys or other objects are not traveling to school.
*Thank you to all the family members that have joined us as Mystery Readers this school year. Your children have loved seeing you visit our classroom.
*Remember to download photos from Shutterfly, as the site will be unavailable once school ends.
*Remember that on the Last Day of School there will be EARLY DISMISSAL and NO TREEHOUSE. Please make arrangements to pick your child up before or by 1:00 that afternoon.

*We will share with you the results of any final assessments that we take. The final progress report and any corresponding materials will be sent home in the mail once the school year has come to an end.
*Some children are arriving to school without a lunch. If this occurs (and as we mentioned during Parent Night at the start of the year), a lunch will be ordered for your child and Mr. Rogers will charge your account accordingly.
*Kindergarten is right around the corner! This is the time we encourage greatest independence. Please let/have your child:
-pack his/her school and lunch bag for the day without directions
-dress himself/herself for the day
-go through carline more often (this is to help prepare for carline in the future)
-buckle himself/herself in to the car (by the end of May is a good goal to have this practiced and done)
-carry his/her own bag into the classroom (without any guidance on putting things away)

*Please save these dates:
Date Event Time
May 21 End-of-the-year Party (parents invited) 12:00
May 25 Last Day of School/Early Dismissal/NO TREEHOUSE 1:00pm

Curriculum Notes for the Week:
*Morning Work: The children will take a few minutes to practice activities with the letter Q. We are also working on printing numbers. After morning work, the children get to enjoy some playtime with their classmates.
*Happily Ever After (ABC Book): This is our last Happily Ever After unit. We will continue our unit by listening to this fun song, and recognizing rhyming words, and matching patterns.
*Letter (Q): This week we will read books with letter Q sounds. We will identify upper and lowercase Q, determine pictures that begin with Q, and paint a queen.
*Science (Animals and the World Around Us): We will be discussing parts of flowers.
*Social Studies (Our Earth): This week we will discuss how we can recycle playdough, and we will put together a mini-booklet that describes how to take care of our Earth.
*Math (Unit 5 Working with Numbers): We will continue our unit by reading our book Acorn Hunt and graphing.

If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.
Dr. Elizabeth Hill and Ms. Hannah Frary
