Wow, I can’t believe this is the LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!!! Thank you so much for being very supportive parents. Your children have worked very hard and have progressed so much!!! Please have your child read and write daily over the summer. I will be sending home their Starfall Journals this week. They can continue to write at least a sentence or two daily about what they did that day. Please reemphasize a sentence starts with an upper case letter, there should be spaces between words and a sentence must end with the correct punctuation. Please also encourage your child to use describing words in their sentences ( size, color, season , etc).
Boosterthon was a tremendous success! Thank you for all your donations! The children loved all the excitement daily that Castle Quest brought!! There was a great turn out of families Friday evening for the Fun Run!!!
Please sign up to join the PTA!! There is a competition between classes!! The class that has 100% of the parents sign up gets a Popsicle Party!!! You children would LOVE this treat!!! See my PTA pg of this blog for more details!!! Thank you for your support!!!
Thank you to the parents who have sent in items for our Treasure Chest and from the Wish List . Feel free to send in little items for our Treasure Chest in case you are cleaning out !
**** Please send in your child’s red communication folder everyday. Put all notes and lunch money in this folder only. Also please send in a drink for your child if he/ she brought their lunch. *
Please read all pages of my blog.
Reminder: Please send in a healthy snack daily for your child.
Water bottles are permitted in the classroom. Please make sure the lids are on securely so they do not leak in your child’s backpack. Also please make sure you label their snack and lunch ( if you send it in) so your child knows the difference . Your children are permitted to take their water bottles outside when it is very hot. Please put your child’s name on their water bottle.
Themes of June: Sink and Float, Insects, Summer Fun!!!!
Language Arts– Plays- Various play parts will be given out to all students to practice. Friday everyone will do their play in front of the class with their classmates. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN DOING THIS LAST FRIDAY!!!! ASK YOUR CHILD ABOUT IT!
This week we will be working on their Kindergarten Memory Book that will be a treasure when we are done!
Continue to encourage your child to write sentences beginning with an upper case letter, using spacing between words, spelling sight words correctly and using correct punctuation at the end of the sentence . Please have your child practice writing their first and last names starting with an upper case letter and the rest of the letters should be written in lower case. Have your child write at least one sentence a day using sight words starting on the left of the page and going to the right in a straight line.
Please practice memorizing and spelling all sight words. By now your child should know at least 50 sight words. Please practice these daily so your child will not forget them. The more sight words your child knows the easier it will be for him/ her in first grade.
Here is a list of sight words we have on our Word Wall :
A- a, am, at, and, an, are, away, all
B- brown, blue, black, be, big
C- can, come
D- do, dad, day, down
F- from, fun
G- green, go, got, grow
H- here, he, have, happy, her, home
I- is, I, in, it, into
L- like, little, look
M- me, my, mom
N- not, no, name
O- orange, on, out, over
P- purple, pink, play
R- red, read
S- see, said , so, she
T- to, the, they, this, that, there
W- white, we, where, will, when, went, with, who, what, why
Y- yellow, you, your
Please review these and the other words on the lists I have sent home to you.
Reminder : By the end of this last quarter your child should be able to count to 100, count by 10’s to 100 and count backwards from 10-0. They should be able to identify all numbers in random order to 20. All children should know what number comes before , without counting, when given a number between 1 and 10 . They should be able to identify the number after, without counting, when given any number between 0 and 100. It would be advantageous for your child to practice writing numbers to 30 or higher. All students will need to identify a penny, nickel, dime and quarter and tell their values. The students also need to identify how many pennies are equal to a nickel, dime and a quarter. All students should know the days of the week and the months of the year by now due to the fact we do Calendar everyday. Practice addition and subtraction.
Social Studies- Father’s Day
“Star Student of the Week” – Please help your child to fill out and color the poster when it is their turn. You can also send in photograph to hang on the poster .

I will display it in our classroom and return it home on Friday.
