On the first of the last days of school (if that makes sense), we worked on Journaling and telling time. We also cleaned a little of our classroom (we will do a little each day) including puzzles, journal folders, and art work. Today was also our last day of centers and computer lab. Tomorrow, we will visit the library for the last time and work on froggy math.
Today we worked on time for one last day. The kids will bring home some cute bee clocks to practice with. We also finished our reading worksheets and started our last round of centers. A sub was in the room from 1:00-3:00 while I was at a meeting. Talk to you on Tuesday!
Five days of school; I can't believe this year has gone so fast! Today we worked on writing and sounding out words. We also made clocks to practice telling time. Tomorrow we will have our last day with our reader pals.
Today we worked on writing our quick words and finished testing. The children all did a great job with their quick words this year. We will continue with working on our quick words and end of the year projects this week.
With only eight days left, we are working hard to finish testing and wrapping things up for the year. We completed some farm animal projects today as well as practiced telling time. The fieldtrip on Friday was a lot of fun. Thanks to all who helped out!
We had a fun pajama day. We watched movies, finished our math books, completed centers, and read a story. We also played on the playground and toured the other grade levels' classrooms. Tomorrow is our fieldtrip. Be sure to send your child with layered clothing and possibly some sunblock. Let's hope for nice weather!
Today we finished our reading workbooks! They were sent home with your child. We also practiced telling time to the hour with little plastic clocks. Tomorrow is our pajama day. Your child can also bring a blanket, pillow, or stuffed animal. I asked them to only bring two things. They can also wear a robe or slippers if they like.
Today we worked hard at finishing our memory books. These will come home on the last day of school. We also talked about farm animals, read a few pig stories, and centers. Soccer was canceled for this evening.
We worked hard today. We read a new take-home book called "The Quilt". We discussed times of day such as morning and night, and started a new unit on farm animals. We watched a cute video about chicks, lambs, pigs, and calves. We also visited the computer lab. Tomorrow, there will be a sub in the afternoon so I can finish testing.
Today you will receive your Mother's and Father's day gift. The kids really put a lot of effort into these projects. We worked on a lot today in reading and math. We continued our money unit and also talked more about our catepillars. They are now chrysalides. We are going to watch a cool video tomorrow about the changes they are making. We have All Arts Day tomorrow, so please send your child in play clothes.
The kids did a lot of good work today with reading and money. They also worked more on their projects for their grown-ups and played outside for gym. We had our last check-out day for library today. Please send your child's book back as soon as they are finished reading it.
We had a full day today. We worked in workbooks, counted money, and had centers. Mr. Bender was the teacher for awhile today so I could test the kids on their letters and sounds. We also trimmed our grass pet's hair. These will be sent home tomorrow.
Today we had a full day of reading, writing, and counting money. We also decorated some cards for Mindy and her baby. The kids who returned their no tv slips went outside for extra recess. Tomorrow, we will have computer lab.
Today we worked on a lot of reading and math. We also made insects (ladybugs) and wrote a journal about plants. We will be working on gifts for our grown-ups next week. We will also continue with money. Have a great weekend!
Today was a little difficult for the children. With a lot of energy, frustrations with the weather, and excitement for summer, the children had a difficult time listening and following directions. We practiced listening, lining up, walking, sitting in our chairs, and keeping hands to ourselves. I can understand their frustrations! We just need to get back on track.
