Important Dates: Week #36

I can’t believe we are just 3 weeks away from the end of the school year!!!  Every year, we look forward to celebrating the end of the year together outside with bubblessidewalk chalkpopsicles, and fun!  We are all stocked up on FUN, but…we would LOVE if you would add bubblesLARGE bubble wands (Dollar Tree), or popsicles to one of your shopping lists in the next few weeks.  We will hold our celebration on Wednesday, June 5th, so if you are willing to help supply us, you can feel free to send in your goodies anytime before that day.

May 20 – Zoo Field Trip

We will leave school around 9:30 and meet our chaperones at the zoo @ 9:50ish.  Remember to dress your child for the outdoors, apply sunscreen, and send your child’s sack lunch to school (use the paper bag labeled with his/her name, if possible).  We will tour the zoo, eat our lunch, play on the playground, and head back to school around 1:15ish.  We can’t wait!!!

May 20 – LAST LIBRARY DAY!!!

Please send your child’s book back to school.  We will head down to the library to turn our books in and listen to one more story from Mrs. Vandenberg.

May 21-24 – Realistic Fiction Writing Post Assessment

Our class will be writing our last realistic fiction book this week.  I will use this piece of writing to assess each child’s understanding of writing narrative books.  If you are able, before school on Tuesday, brainstorm with your child about a character, setting, and trouble they would like to imagine for their story and check in with your child about how their writing is going throughout the week.  I can’t wait to read these amazing books!!!

May 24 – Red, White, & Blue Day!!!

Wear your USA colors to school.

May 27 – No School: Memorial Day

We will be wrapping up with a lot of assessments this week and next week, it’s hard to pinpoint the date for each, but when I can I will add it to our schedule.  Make sure your child gets a good nights sleep, eats a yummy breakfast, and has two healthy snack to eat during our school day.
