News Week 32

April 23 - April 27

We are very excited to introduce our new class pets for the next few weeks: caterpillars! We will have the opportunity to watch their metamorphosis as they change from caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly!


There is no Success Academy this week. 


Our last kindergarten field trip is scheduled for Friday, May 18th. We will be going to the Lewis Family Playhouse Theater in Rancho Cucamonga to see "Frederick the Mouse". We are asking for a $15 donation from each student to cover the cost of the ticket and bus. You can donate by visiting our Dollar A Day link: Dollar A Day. THIS IS THE LAST WEEK TO DONATE TOWARDS THE FIELD TRIP! Unfortunately, if we do not have enough funds BY FRIDAY, we will have to cancel. Permission slips will be coming home soon. We are looking forward to a fun last kindergarten field trip together! 



Save The Date: We will be having a very special Mother's Day celebration on Friday, May 11th from 11:00-12:30. I wanted to let you know early in case you need to take the time off work or find childcare for little ones. The school childcare fills up quickly on this day and is on a first come first serve basis.  I encourage you to find childcare for your little ones since this is a special celebration for mommies and their kindergarten student.  Thank you in advance for your understanding.  This is SUCH a special celebration and we hope all of you mommies are able to make it!


Our due date is quickly approaching for those Community Service projects. TWO MORE WEEKS! These will be due the first week of May - They will need to be turned in before May 11th to qualify for the Leadership Banquet. Please spend the next two weeks finishing up your projects and working with your child on his or her presentation. Each child will present their project in front of the class the week of May 7-11. Please see our Community Service Tab for more information and feel free to email me if you have any questions.

What Are We Learning This Week?:


Sight Words: MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, FAMILY.


Letter Team:  There are NO new letter teams! For the rest of the year, we will be reviewing all letter teams that we have learned this year. The expectation is that students recognize the letter team within our three second rule, then be able to apply that letter team when decoding an unknown word


Reading: We will read books about caterpillars and butterflies as we study their life cycle. 


Writing: We are working on using thinking maps to help us with our writing. This week, we will make a FLOW MAP of the life cycle of a butterfly. We will use pictures to help us write each detail of the life cycle. 


Math: We are working hard on decomposing, composing, addition, and subtraction through many fun math games! Please continue to reinforce these skills at home. 



Leadership: We will continue to ROAR and discuss what it means to have a growth mindset!
