Dear Kindergarten Chameleon Parents,

We can’t believe that we are writing our last Week Ahead for the 2015-2016 school year. We have enjoyed working with your students and feel honored to be such a huge part of their lives. We have had so much fun in our class. Some highlights were: our field trips to the California Academy of Science and to Half Moon Bay, Seussical the Musical, AOEs, Portfolio Day, Special Friend’s Day, our Valentine’s Day party, Harvest Festival, and so many more! We will miss your students but are excited to see or hear about their first grade adventures!

In Literacy, this week we will introduce our last sight words for the year: have and over. Students will also practice reading, sorting and writing the consonant clusters sk and st. We will play games to review the concepts taught this year and have free writer’s workshop time.

In Math, we will be doing a Math Talk where students show how much they know about the number 10. We are excited to see the progress students have made with this since we did this mid-year.

In Science, we will continue to explore building our Rube Goldberg machines. Students have had lots of fun making ramps and using dominoes, blocks, and other materials to find ways to make a ball move. This week, students will be challenged to make a Rube Goldberg machine that can trap something. Please feel free to come in and join us for our Rube Goldberg making time on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:45-10:00.

Moving up ceremony is also happening on our last day of school. Students should arrive at 9 A.M. and head right up to our classroom. The ceremony will take place in the gym and afterward will be the family picnic. Hope to see you there!

We are looking forward to a last week with your children and to celebrate them becoming first graders!


Allison and Caitlin
