Happy Birthday to Katie and Zeke!
We celebrated Katie’s birthday on Wednesday, May 15, and Zeke’s birthday on Thursday, May 16. It was so much fun sharing a special day with each of you. We hope you enjoyed your birthday!
Liverpool Student Teacher: Miss Abi
We had the privilege of welcoming Miss Abigail Warburton (Miss Abi) into our classroom. She quickly won the hearts of the kindergarten students; they absolutely adored her. Before she left, each child shared a letter with Miss Abi, telling her how they felt about having her in the classroom. A few highlights include: “I liked learning the game Heads Down, Thumbs Up”, “I want to come and visit you and meet the Queen”, “Please come back soon”, “I liked learning about Buckingham Palace”, “Thank you for teaching us letters (handwriting)”.
This was a special time for our class and I am so thankful to have had this wonderful opportunity! Thank you, Miss Abi for sharing your time with us! We will miss you!!!!
WRITING WORKSHOP: The kindergarteners are doing such a good job of writing their opinion and giving reasons of why they think the way they do. They practiced writing letters to Miss Abi and to me, this week, stating their opinion and reasoning behind the best pet, their favorite season and what they enjoyed about having a student teacher from Liverpool in our classroom. It was fun reading their letters to learn more about each of them!
MATH: We have completed all of our math units for kindergarten. The kindergarteners have learned so much this year. For the next few weeks of school, we will continue to practice and deepen our math skills by playing math games and completing different math activities.
READING WORKSHOP: During our workshop time for the remaining of the year we will continue to Read across Genres, by sharing our favorite books with the entire class. The students are practicing reading aloud one of their favorite books in their book bin to share with the class. Everyone will get chance to share! The students are looking forward to their sharing time.
ASSESSMENTS: Assessments are under way for the end of the year report cards. Please make sure that your child eats a healthy, nutritious breakfast before coming to school and that they have a quick, healthy snack for refueling later in the morning. Getting a good night’s sleep is also beneficial to their continual learning. Thank you so much for encouraging and supporting your child to do his/her best each day!
