WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH?
Mrs. G. & Mrs. Obaker
Mrs. Obaker and I cannot believe our year is coming to an end. It seems like yesterday your little ones entered our classroom shy, hesitant, and sometimes teary. It has been a joy watching them blossom throughout the year. It has been exciting to watch friendships form and skills develop. Your children are sweet, funny and talented. It has been a pleasure working with them. The fun is not quite over though! We will wrap up the year by making Mother’s Day gifts and beginning our ocean unit. This is always a class favorite. They love to learn about the different sea creatures! As always, thank you for sharing your children with us!
Mrs. Brown & Mrs. Musci
We’re starting the month finishing up our unit on bugs. Along with this, we’ll be doing a literacy study using Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We’ll end our insect unit by talking about one of their predators: frogs! We’ll do a quick unit on that slimy creature before ending the school year learning about a class favorite: dinosaurs. This will provide us with a great opportunity to do lots of hands-on learning, dramatic play, and skill strengthening. We’re still finishing up Student of the Day. Reminders about that will come to you via email. The last day of school, we’ll wrap up at 11:00am, meet at school and caravan over to Greenwood Park for a class picnic. More specific details will be sent through ClassTag. Thank you so much for spending this incredible school year with us. We will miss all of you during the summer months!
Mrs. Bosher & Mrs. Pawlak
We made it! There are so many things planned for the last month of the school year. The first week of the month finds us wrapping up our insect unit and working on a special project.
The last three weeks of the school year, we will concentrate on all things warm weather related. The five senses will come into play when we talk about summer. This will transition into a Beach Ocean unit. The students will have an opportunity to count, sort, trace and craft their way into summer vacation!
On Friday, May 27th, we will be having a Class Picnic at Greenwood Park. We are so happy to be able to bring this event back this year! It’s such a nice way to end the school year. The park is located at the end of Sussex by the Wiltondale pool. We will meet at school at 11 am and caravan to the park. Students will have a chance to eat a picnic lunch, play with their friends and will then dismiss from Greenwood.
Mrs. Pullias & Mrs. Joyce
It is hard to believe our year is winding down, but we still have a month filled with many fun and exciting activities. Our Spring unit will continue with Butterflies, Frogs and Insects. Later, we will learn about transportation and animals that live in the ocean. Our “Amazing Alphabet Adventure” will end with the letter “Z” and a special “Mystery Alphabet” show and tell. We also have many fun end of the year crafts and special projects for “Mother’s Day” and “Father’s Day!” It is sure to be a busy month, but we have had a great year and intend to enjoy every minute of it!
Mrs. Howe & Mrs. Powell
The 4s are soon going to be kindergarteners! As we wind down our year, the first week we will continue our unit on caterpillars and butterflies. We will then move on to Mother’s Day and bees. The end of the year brings our ocean and beach theme. We will also finish our alphabet just in the nick of time. Everyone has been so excited as we get close to the end. Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with Mrs. Powell and myself.
This year has certainly been one like no other! I want to thank all of you for trusting us with your children. This year was a success because of our wonderful families and staff! I am so grateful for your support and faith in us during this extraordinary school year!
Every member of our community is a gift. Whether our students, faculty members or families have been here for one year or ten, it is never easy for us to say good-bye. We always wish we had just one more year together. So, for now, let’s leave it at, “See you soon!”
