AM Book Exchange is TUESDAY! April 2nd

Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Weekly News: April 1 – 5

We are so glad March went out like a Lamb and we had several days we could run around outside! Now let’s hope April doesn’t bring as many showers so we can continue to get outside for fresh air and fun activities!

Your child brought home (or will bring home) the book Splat the Cat, I Scream for Ice Cream as a gift from the class book order. Thank you for your support each month helping us get a book for all of our kindergarteners.

Happenings this week:

Wednesday, April 3: AM Library Book Exchange

Homework help: Please have your child read their leveled reading book to you two times through, EVERY night. Please sign or initial the post it note on the front of the book. When they bring it back to their reading teacher we are looking for accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. If they struggle in these areas because they are not reading each night, we can not keep moving them on to other books. Please help your child to remember to pull those books out as soon as they get home so we can keep them moving in the right direction for first grade. (Which is only 45 school days and summer vacation away!)

Rainbow words: Please go through their baggie of words each night to be ready for testing. Parent helpers come in several times a week to help with writing and sight words.

If you would like to help with just Rainbow Sight words, please let me know. I would love to have a parent come from 9 – 9:50 for the morning, and 1 – 1:50 for the afternoon, just to work on sight words. (One day a week would be great, you do not need to come in every day.)

Looking ahead:

April 8-12 BOGO Book Fair. Our class day to go to the Book Fair is April 11. Only students with money to spend on books will be going to the fair. You are also welcome to come in that day to shop with your child. AM: 11:00 – 11:30, PM: 1:00 – 1:30.


May 10: Early Dismissal 1:30 with the PM class in session/Field Trip to the Lancaster Library


May 30- 5:30-7:30- School Picnic

AM Class Reward, Thursday, March 28

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 28, the AM class will have a class reward. They have picked to watch a movie, bring a blanket or stuffed animal, and a snack (I will provide the snack) The stuffed animal OR blanket (not both) need to be able to fit into a backpack. We will watch the movie The Gruffalo and talk about the rhyming words and parts of the movie such as setting, characters, the lesson/moral of the story, and how we can make connections to ourselves, other movies or books, and the world around us.
