The week is rushing by with Monday as a no school day and today as a late opening! I appreciate everyone who has turned in the field trip permission slip to see the play, Don’t Let The Pigeons Drive The Bus. The book, Little Mouse, is the focus literary book this week. The class will fill out a word web, write about the characters they see in the book and continue writing and brainstorming describing words in their writing. We are focusing on capitalization and punctuation during journal writing: commas, periods, exclamation points and question marks. Last Friday we got together with our buddy class and created pictures of toucans, using the undercoating technique and oil pastels. Since the kindergartners have already done this, they were able to be the “teachers” to their buddies. We had over 50 children in class; thank you so much for my parent helpers!!! On Friday, your child will be receiving their report card and then spring break arrives! How fast the school year has gone by. I hope you all have an enjoyable week off.
