Weekly Newsletter Week 37 May 14th – May 18th Dear Parents,
First I want to thank all of you and your children for making Teacher Appreciation Week/Day so special. I was overwhelmed at the amount of pictures drawn, flowers, candy, cards, food and gifts that were showered upon me. You are an amazing bunch of parents and it shows in your amazing children!
Our focus phonograms for this week are: ea ay ai au aw ear ph wor wh x oe j k s n z f u g p
Our spelling words come from LIST 17, and are as follows: ran, run, that, his, led, lay, apple, ate, author, bread. The following are the review words for this week: see, was, today, make, you. This is the last list in your binder. *See below for what to do with your binder before the end of the year.
Thank you to all who turned in reading logs last week. Remember that I will no longer be accepting reading logs, but you should still keep logging them for summer reading programs at the library as well as to turn into first grade teachers for a prize on the first day of school in August. More information about this program will be included in your child’s last day of school bag.
Any student who has not said their poem yet will need to do so this week. Thank you to those who were ready early.
As we turn towards the home stretch, please keep practicing, phonograms, reading, and math facts with your child. We will not be dialing down the academics as the last few days of school roll by, and neither should you.
In extended day, we will continue learning about ocean life. Again, if you have any ocean items at home, please let your child bring them in to show and tell (shells, starfish, seaweed, books about the ocean, etc...).
End of the year party information has already been sent home. If you need another copy of the flyer, let me know. Make sure you send in your $3 to Mrs. Hynes ASAP!. The party will be a time of awards, a performance by your student, and cake! You are always welcome to attend, but please remember to leave siblings, both younger and older, at home.
*Lastly, before the last day of school, please clean out the inside of your blue curriculum night binders and return just the binder so we can reuse it next year.
