last week

On the first of the last days of school (if that makes sense), we worked
on Journaling and telling time. We also cleaned a little of our
classroom (we will do a little each day) including puzzles, journal
folders, and art work. Today was also our last day of centers and
computer lab. Tomorrow, we will visit the library for the last time and
work on froggy math.

One week to go!

Today we worked on time for one last day. The kids will bring home some
cute bee clocks to practice with. We also finished our reading
worksheets and started our last round of centers. A sub was in the room
from 1:00-3:00 while I was at a meeting. Talk to you on Tuesday!

Holy Cow!

Five days of school; I can't believe this year has gone so fast! Today
we worked on writing and sounding out words. We also made clocks to
practice telling time. Tomorrow we will have our last day with our
reader pals.

The kids also went to library to talk about books.

continue with working on our quick words and end of the year projects
this week.

Eight to go!

With only eight days left, we are working hard to finish testing and
wrapping things up for the year. We completed some farm animal projects
today as well as practiced telling time. The fieldtrip on Friday was a
lot of fun. Thanks to all who helped out!

Pajama Day!

We had a fun pajama day. We watched movies, finished our math books,
completed centers, and read a story. We also played on the playground
and toured the other grade levels' classrooms. Tomorrow is our
fieldtrip. Be sure to send your child with layered clothing and possibly
some sunblock. Let's hope for nice weather!

PJ Day tomorrow

Today we finished our reading workbooks! They were sent home with your
child. We also practiced telling time to the hour with little plastic
clocks. Tomorrow is our pajama day. Your child can also bring a blanket,
pillow, or stuffed animal. I asked them to only bring two things. They
can also wear a robe or slippers if they like.

on the last day of school. We also talked about farm animals, read a few
pig stories, and centers. Soccer was canceled for this evening.

Back to School

We worked hard today. We read a new take-home book called "The Quilt".
We discussed times of day such as morning and night, and started a new
unit on farm animals. We watched a cute video about chicks, lambs, pigs,
and calves. We also visited the computer lab. Tomorrow, there will be a
sub in the afternoon so I can finish testing.

Today you will receive your Mother's and Father's day gift. The kids
really put a lot of effort into these projects. We worked on a lot today
in reading and math. We continued our money unit and also talked more
about our catepillars. They are now chrysalides. We are going to watch a
cool video tomorrow about the changes they are making. We have All Arts
Day tomorrow, so please send your child in play clothes.

Good Day

The kids did a lot of good work today with reading and money. They also
worked more on their projects for their grown-ups and played outside for
gym. We had our last check-out day for library today. Please send your
child's book back as soon as they are finished reading it.

It's only Tuesday!

We had a full day today. We worked in workbooks, counted money, and had
centers. Mr. Bender was the teacher for awhile today so I could test the
kids on their letters and sounds. We also trimmed our grass pet's hair.
These will be sent home tomorrow.

for our grown-ups next week. We will also continue with money. Have a
great weekend!

A little bit of stress!

Today was a little difficult for the children. With a lot of energy,
frustrations with the weather, and excitement for summer, the children
had a difficult time listening and following directions. We practiced
listening, lining up, walking, sitting in our chairs, and keeping hands
to ourselves. I can understand their frustrations! We just need to get
back on track.
