Wow!  It’s the last month of school already; this year has flown by.  As we work our way through the last month of school, there are going to be many different exciting events.  We are excited to go to Renfrew.  Our Renfrew field trip will only be half a day, unlike the farm field trip.  There is going to be a Project Team Reward day; our school has worked very hard to earn tickets for countless different things to earn this day.  There will also be a talent show towards the last couple of days of school.  

As there are many fun events coming up, please remember to keep doing the following:

  • Continue to practice their letters and sounds.  The faster your child knows their letters and their sounds the easier it will be to read and write.
  • Continue to work on their kindergarten high frequency words.  They are going to be given more words next year so the more they know kindergarten words the easier it will be for them to transition into first grade high frequency words.
  • Continue to read with your child.  100 book challenge will be coming to an end shortly.  Go to the library and check out books your child will be able to read.  Continue to read and ask questions all summer long.  This will make sure they are ready to begin 1st grade.
  • Have them write for you.  We worked on narratives, how to stories, and are working on writing letters and persuasive pieces now.  Have them pick something they absolutely love to tell someone else all about it. 
  • Continue to count with your child.  Have them count something particular on a car ride or have play hopscotch.  Anything you can think of to get your child counting will work!
  • Practice writing and identifying their numbers with them.  Those teen numbers are super tricky.

Most of all enjoy the last month your child is a kindergartner! They are heading to first grade more than ready!
