It is hard to believe that this is our final week of school! We had a successful year and the students are very excited to move up to the next level.  They are also very eager to sing and graduate in front of all their friends and family on Monday. Girls should wear a summer dress and boys should wear nice pants and a dress shirt, please no jeans! We look forward to seeing you all.  I hope everyone has a healthy and happy summer!!

We are preparing for our stepping up ceremony!  Students are working hard on preparing their songs for their friends and family.  We are reviewing sequence and rhyming words this week as well as doing some collage art work on our fish.  We will be discussing Memorial Day and what it means.  Just a reminder there is no school this Friday or the following Monday.  As always any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!  :)

This week we will be learning about plants and how they grow.  We will also be focusing on the letter “N”.  We received our caterpillar friends and all the children are so exciting to be watching them grow and get bigger these past few days.  They are all patiently awaiting them to make their cocoons and then finally form into butterflies! We can’t wait to release them once they have completed their full life cycle!

This week we will be talking all about Easter and how we can be nicer friends to one another just as Jesus has taught us.  We will be learning some new words for our “Spring” themed word wall and creating a cotton ball lamb in religion.  We will doing fun activities such as dying eggs and making Jello and we will be having a small Spring party on Wednesday afternoon.  There is a half day on Thursday.  I hope everyone enjoys their Easter break!

This week we have been discussing how spring is on it’s way! Our letter for the next two weeks will be “S”. The children enjoyed our St.Patricks Day party yesterday and loved our special green bagles. We will be talking about Easter which is approaching quicky and I will also be slowly starting to introduce songs in preparation for graduation. :)

This week we celebrated Read Across America.  We had an ice cream party where the “Cat in the Hat” paid us a special visit.  We also decorated a door with shoes that the kids colored for one of their favorite story characters “Pete the Cat”.  We even had our friends from 6th grade come to our class and read to each of their prayer partners.  We had so much fun.  Below are a few pictures, enjoy! :)

 

 

We will be having our Valentine’s Day Party on Thursday February 12th in the afternoon.  If your child would like to bring in a car or treat please make sure to include one for every child in the class to ensure no one gets left out.  The children have been completing a lot of fun Valentine’s Day projects and are looking forward to celebrating the day!! :)
