Our last Field Trip is this Thursday, May 17th.  If you are chaperoning, we will be leaving school at 10:15.  We should return by 1:45.  Don’t forget to bring in a sack lunch that does not need to be refrigerated.  You may also have ordered one from the cafeteria.  Students can wear casual bottoms and a St. Rose shirt (or a yellow or blue shirt). If you have any questions about the Field Trip, please let me know.  I’ve been watching the forecast and the weather may be iffy.  Let’s pray for no rain!!!

 

Field Day is coming up!  Hopefully you ordered and paid for you child’s shirt.  I will keep the shirt’s here at school and when the students come in on Field Day we will change into our shirts here at school.  If you would like to be a helper on Field Day, please let me know.

 

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the end of the year Kindergarten Program.  We have started practicing!

 

Just a reminder-  Now that spring is here, girls many NOT wear navy pants on mass days.  They need to wear their school uniform skirt or jumper.

Here is what we are working on this week:

Theme:  We are finishing up all things butterflies and moving on to my favorite topic…All things ocean related!  For the rest of the school year, we are going to be talking about ocean animals and other ocean related topics.  (If you have any empty water bottles to send in, we can use them for something I’m planning for the last week of school.  I would appreciate any that you can send in.  Thank you!)

 

I am not going to introduce any more sight words this year.  We are going to begin assessing for the following sight words….

Please work with your child at home to ensure that they have mastered the following words:

Jesus, God, blue, can, I, red, the, we, yellow, like, green, a, to, and, see, play, purple, orange, go, is, pink, brown, black, have, you, for, white, gray, are, look, here, that, it, he, she, then, them, these, by, up, down, at, there, out, which, who, what, when, number, one, two, made, time, write, people, am, do, did, in, on, was, with, has, had, will, make, my, no, but, be, his, him, her, said, your, come, some, find, many, all

 

Math:  We are going to work with both addition and subtraction for the rest of the school year.  I also introduced telling time just for fun.  This is not a Kindergarten standard, but I wanted to see how the kiddos did with it.  Some of them caught on really quickly!  See if your child can tell you the time on a clock tonight. 

 

Writing: Drawing real life pictures with 3-star coloring (colors make sense, no white spaces, staying in the lines) and using labels.  We are now trying to write several full sentences.  We are working on sounding out words, starting sentences with capital letters, ending with a sentence stopper, and proper spacing between words.
