May 30 – June 2

Countdown to Summer:  This week we had fun with discovering what our fun countdown activity would be.  The Kindergartners enjoyed some chalk day fun, pen fun and bubble blowing outside.  We used chalk all day with our academic tasks.  The kindergartners loved going outside with their chalk to decorate the bus loop.  Oh what fun we had with writing with our pen all day too.  The Kindergarteners were all having so much fun writing with this new tool.  At free choice it was pretty cute to see them collecting autographs from their classmates using their colorful pens.  Our bubble fun was also enjoyable.  The Kindergarteners loved how the bubbles came in a “popsicle” style container.  The loved being able to go outside and fill the sky with bubbles.

Writer’s Workshop:  We had a lot of fun creating our Father’s Day gifts for Dad during Writer’s Workshop this week.  The Kindergartners can’t wait to give these gifts to Dad.  They have all been sent home.  We wanted to make sure we didn’t leave Dad out of our fun creating before school is out for the year.  We hope Dad enjoys these gifts for Father’s Day!

Social Studies:  We are wrapping up our study of U.S. symbols.  The Kindergartners have learned about our Flag, American Eagle, Liberty Bell, White House and Statue of Liberty.  They are really excited when they see these symbols!  Many of them discovering symbols in books they read!

Readers Workshop:  We have been continuing to celebrate being readers!  We had fun Friday reading our books with some fun Memorial Day inspired sunglasses.  I am continuing to test your little readers up until the end of the school year.  Giving them every last moment to reach their independent reading level.

Writers Workshop:  We have completed our Opinion Writing on demand.  We celebrated our completion by having Ms. Yankee’s class join us for some sharing and fun.  The Kindergarteners joined a friend and shared their Opinion of which restaurant was their favorite and why.  After they shared their writing they then got to decide which candy is better?  A starburst or chocolate?  We had 37 Kindergarteners who had the opinion that starburst candy is the best.  While another 7 believed that chocolate was the best.  The Kindergarteners also enjoyed writing their own All About our Flag book.  We will review the many different writing genres for the remainder of the year.  Your child’s Opinion writing will be coming home soon.

Social Studies:  We have started our study of U.S. Symbols.  We have learned all about our American Flag, Statue of Liberty and the Bald Eagle.  The Kindergarteners have enjoyed this study of symbols.  They even made up an impromptu jingle about the Statue of Liberty.  We had so much making our own hats and then creating our own parade through our classroom, to the office and then saying our Pledge of Allegiance under our school flagpole.  They are AMAZING kids!!  We will continue to study  more U.S. Symbols for the remainder of the school year.

5th Grade Buddies:  We were able to join our 5th grade buddies on the K playground for some yummy red, white and blue popsicle fun!  We LOVE spending time with them!!

Kindergarten Olympics:  On Friday, June 2 we will be having a fun time of games and Kindergarten fun!  Please ensure that your Kindergartener wears tennis shoes on Olympic day…NO FLIP FLOPS, SANDALS OR CROCKS PLEASE!  A water bottle labeled with their name is also needed for Friday, June 2.  Don’t forget the sunscreen!  If you are a volunteer for our Olympics please plan to arrive at 8:45 a.m. for instructions on the K/1 playground.  ALL parents and younger siblings are welcome to join us for a picnic lunch on the playground.  We will be having our picnic lunch at 12:00 p.m.  PLEASE EMAIL ME AT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS!!

Mystery Reader:  Eliana was sooooo surprised when she saw her “superhero” family come into our classroom as our Mystery Reader!  Eliana’s Mom (Batwoman) Dad (Superman) and little brother Elijah (superman in training) shared two stories with us.  We loved the story of The Big Wide Mouthed Frog by Ana Martin Larranaga.  Thankfully the frog outsmarted the hungry crocodile in the end!  We also enjoyed the classic by Dr. Suess, The Sneetches.  Seeing how important it is to just be you and love others as they are too!

Red Nose Day!


Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 26, 2017

Today we celebrated Red Nose Day!  A cause near and dear to my heart.  The Kids enjoyed a quick video of kids explaining what Red Nose Day is all about.  They learned that Red Nose Day is about helping everyone get the things they need.  When you purchase a Red Nose you help donate to those in need.  To date this amazing charity has raised over $1 billion globally.  Hope your little Kinders enjoyed the silly Red Nose today.
