Writing: For our Writer’s Workshop we are working on a three-sentence personal narrative paper. 1. The first sentence should tell the characters and the setting. The characters are the people or the animals. The setting is where & when. 2.The second sentence should tell the problem. 3. The third sentence should tell the resolution/how to fix the problem. Parents, will you please help your child with remembering these? THANK YOU!!

Weekly News

Sight Words:

The Sight words are MEMORY words, which means your child needs to memorize them, NOT stretch (or sound) them out. Many of the sight words do not follow the rules of phonetics, so don’t have your child stretch them out. Kindergarten will only learn the short vowel sounds. They will learn the long vowel sounds in first grade. They just need to memorize each word and it’s spelling. Use the flashcards I gave you last September.

ABC Countdown to Summer!!

We have a change in our ABC Countdown. For June 4th, the packet says it is clean-up day & to bring a large paper bag to take things home in. We will actually be having clean-up day on Monday, June 3rd since Tuesday is Field Day and we won’t have time to clean up our room. So, please send in a large paper bag for your child to bring things home in. Thank you!

I hope your child is enjoying the fun of our ABC countdown! Be sure to check the packet daily so that you know what the next day entails. Each day will have a different activity, or something for your child to bring to school (only if you have it. Please do NOT go out and buy anything, unless you want to). This is a fun way to end the school year!

Junior Achievement: Thank you so much, Mrs. Amenya (Robyn’s Mom) for coming into our classroom to teach JA. Mrs. Amenya did a FANTASTIC job!! We all learned about goods and services and how we will need to make smart choices when we grow up so that we can pay our bills and get what we need before we buy things we want. THANK YOU, MRS. AMENYA!!! : )

Have you Registered for Next Year?

If you have not registered for next year yet, please do so ASAP! We will be ordering our curriculum books for the students for next year soon and we need to know how many to order. Also, we really do want to see you & your wonderful children come back to St. Jerome and be a part of our school with us!!

Monday, May 20th-(NO SCHOOL for just the current Kindergarten students).

There will be no school on May 20th for your current kindergarten student because I will be hosting Kindergarten Round-Up for next year’s kindergarten students. Thank you!

Scholastic Book Orders:

This will be the last Scholastic book order. The fliers that went home are for both May & June. Orders from any of these fliers are due on MAY 20th so that the books will come in time before the last day of school. Consider purchasing books for your child to read all summer long! Remember, the only way they will get better at something/anything is to practice! So, invest in your child’s reading by getting their level books. Look for the packs with levels A-D. There is a Bonus this month!  If you order $25.00 worth online, you get a FREE $5.00 book!! Orders are due by May 20th, so that you will receive the books before school is out for the summer. If you would like to place an order; the easiest way to do so is online. Use code RGVYW. If you would rather fill in your order using the flyer, please send it back to school with your child, and with a check or cash for the total. THANK YOU!!
