Image result for June

I cannot believe this is the last month of school. We have definitely had a lot of fun this year. It truly has been a pleasure having your children in my class. I want to thank all of you for your support throughout this past year, as well as for volunteering to help out with parties and coming in to read to the kids. They have enjoyed it.

Our End of the Year Party will be held on Thursday, June 6th. We will be having an outdoor picnic so please make sure you bring a blanket or beach towel to sit on :)

The AM class won the Box Top contest! Thank you to everyone that sent in Box Tops throughout the school year!!! To celebrate we will be having an ice cream party on Friday, June 7th. 

During the month of May we learned the nursery rhyme “Rub a Dub Dub”. Our vocabulary focus was on community helpers. Throughout the past few weeks we learned about all the different people that work in our community and the jobs they do.

For our small group activities we focused on rhyming, clapping out syllables, following directions, more and less, ordinal numbers and beginning sounds/ending sounds. We also worked on placing a 3-4 scene story into the correct order, as well as retelling the story. 

For our Fine motor groups, the AM class used the Handwriting without Tears program, to help us focus on letters  X, Y, Z .  The PM class used the Fundation's program, to help us focus on letters p, q, y.

During the month of June we will be reviewing some of the pre-reading and math skills that we have focused on throughout the past year. We will also review some of the nursery rhymes we’ve learned, along with some of the concepts we have discussed. For our vocabulary theme this month we will be talking about summer activities, vacations and camping. Our small group activities will be focused around these themes. We will also be working on our Father’s Day presents. I hope you like them. 

For our fine motor groups this month, both the AM and PM class will be reviewing letters A-Z.
