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!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Enjoy the weekend!
