Summer: We are finishing up our Summer curriculum. We have been working hard learning our food groups and what foods go into each groups. We have loved watching all the plants grow and learning about them. And with the end of summer quickly approaching we will transition into a brand new school year.
Language Arts: We will jump right into the new year after placement testing week. The first week we will review letters and sounds and start our Animated Alphabet the second week.
Science and Social Studies: We will begin our new year learning the rules of the classroom and how to use our manners. We will then get to know our friends by posting All About Me posters in the stairway to our classroom. These will be considered one of the only times I will “assign” homework.
Math: Just like with Language Arts we will spend the first week revisiting our numbers, shapes and colors. After that we will dive into our curriculum head on.
Some Housekeeping: Everyone will have a cubbie in the hallway with their assigned number. Please check your child’s on a daily basis. Along with daily worksheets and art, they will also have folders with a monthly calendar. I will document your child’s day on them. Above the cubbies, I have a monthly calendar that I will post events and themes. Any important information for parents will be posted beside the calendar. Please check this regularly throughout the year.

We have a lot of summer activities planned for June. We will plant our carrot plants we started from seeds and spending a lot of time outside.
With the weather getting warmer if you’d like to send a refillable water bottle to school that would be great. I’ll have a container so we can bring take them out with us on the playground. Also, if you have not brought in sun screen please do so.
This month we will also be celebrating dads. We will spend quite a bit of time talking about why they are special. If you have any pics of your children with their dads, can you send one to school please?
