  • Thank you to our room moms for supplying the items needed for our last week of school!
  • Awards Day is on Tuesday May 14- it is from 9:10-9:40. With such a short time, we will begin at 9:10 so plan to arrive in enough time to park. 1st grade parents should be leaving before we begin but parking will be tight!
  • SSKG3 State the street address, city, state, and country in which the student lives: many students have already mastered this standard- let’s make it 100%

  • Learning about Memorial Day and the 4th of July: what the holidays represent, how we celebrate them
  • Sight words: there, were, which, word – We have made it to 100 words! (list D)if your child already recognizes these sight words ask them to practice writing them in sentences using their phonetic spelling, for ex: We r (are) on the bot (boat).

(Students should be able to read 75 words by the end of this quarter, moving towards 100)

  • Show and tell: last one! Student choice


  • Writing: post writing: informational, narrative, opinion. Writing about our holidays, completing a Kindergarten book
