Thank you to everyone who came and marched in the parade today what beautiful weather! Thank you as well to all my parent helpers. Your presence was so appreciated. So grateful to those who served our country so that we could have the freedom we enjoy!
We just completed our final full week of Kindergarten! The kids are working hard these last few weeks but you can certainly feel the excitement in the air! We are enjoying our alphabet countdown as well as our PBL studies!
This week I had a substitute for one morning to assess the students’ reading. I am so very proud of the readers they are becoming! Please continue to read with them over the summer. If you are at all interested in tutoring I will be doing it as well as Mary Bronsink. You can sign up on ZCS’website or contact me! You can choose how much or how little you would like to do it. Enjoy your long holiday weekend!
- May 27: Memorial Day Parade
- June 5: Field Trip to the Holland Farmer’s Market
- June 6: Last day of school
Our field trip to the Holland Farmer’s Market is quickly approaching. I will be sending out information regarding this in the upcoming week. Also, if you have volunteered to go and haven’t already sent me the number of kids you can take in your car could you please do that. I would like to determine a way to get us all there in the fewest cars possible as parking can be a bit limited.
WEDNESDAY, May 29 from 2:30-3:20 in the LIBRARY. We are combining with Mrs. Bronsink’s class for our PBL celebration. Families are welcome to join us in the Library to see what your children have learned. Although it is the PBL celebration, this project truly shows the growth that your children have made this whole school year. Their attention, reading, writing and creativity have grown so much! It is fun to watch them use everything they have learned and create something with it. Please note that you will have to check in at the office and there will be many other parents checking in so allow for a little extra time. Thanks!
Sometime in the next week if you could send your child with a gallon size Ziploc bag that is labeled. We will be starting to pack our stuff up as the end of the school year is almost here!
Bible: This week we studied Saul and his journey to become Paul. We also talked about things we learned about God this year to put in our spiritual journals.
Phonics: We finished our study of the vowels by working on the vowel U. We also worked on a paper that reviewed word families and rhyming.
Daily 5: This week is the last week I will be sending new books home. Please do your best to send them back on Monday and also look around your homes for any extra ones you may have floating around!
Writing Workshop: We finished up our How to writing. I was so proud of how the students were able to come up with ideas and then the steps to complete them! Their writing has progressed so much this year!
Math: We worked with base 10 blocks to make teen numbers.
Engaging God’s World: This week we continued to work on our PBL projects. Thank you again to all the parents who have helped us! We are excited to show you what we have learned next week!
Afternoons: We were able to work on our PBL projects plus art, quiet time, playtime and parade practice!
