 Dear Kindergarten and First Grade Families,

     The first grade group learned to read If you Give a Moose a Muffin this week.  They have enjoyed doing the reading activities and learning about moose.  The kindergarten group learned the rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence" and continued their word study by focusing on long vowel sounds.

     I am so impressed by all the wonderful animal projects!  They all did such a nice job!  We have started putting the reports into a book and next week we will put them in the hardcover bare books.

     We have a new student in our classroom.  His name is Gage and he and his family has come here from Ludington.  We now have 20 students.

     I will be starting guided reading with the kindergarten students who are ready.  If I feel your child is ready I have given you yellow letters explaining the details.  I will also be sending home sight words for your child to practice at home.  I was so impressed with how many words many of the kindergarteners are reading.  Part of that is a result of the extra reading you do with them at home.  Thank-you!

     Tomorrow is the end of the 3rd marking period.  Conferences will be held on Wednesday, March 28th from 6-9pm.  Please come in whenever it is convenient for you.  We will not be scheduling you for a specific time.         

     We continue to have guest speakers visit us for our reading month extra’s and tomorrow morning we will be visiting with Romana DeGeorgio-Venegas for “Fun in the Woods” at 10:25.  Buck Wilder has rescheduled and will be here on Monday at 10:00.  Please join us if you are able!
