This week we will begin our last theme of the school year and it
is appropriately entitled “Ready for Kindergarten”! As we begin this theme, it is hard to believe
that the school year is coming to a close.
Throughout the next three weeks our focus will be to review what
we have learned throughout the school year.
This week, our concept focus will be “Now I Know My ABC’s” in which our
emphasis will be on letter recognition, phonological awareness, and
Larry Lion and Ms. L laugh their way into our classroom with the
longest of laughs as we learn about the letter “L”.
In math, we will be learning more about symmetry and reviewing
weight, patterning, sequencing, and working on number stories.
In science, we will continue to learn about the life cycle of
plants and animals/insects. Special
attention will be on the life cycle of a butterfly as we continue to monitor
the progress and care for our very own “butterflies” which are now in the chrysalis
We had lots of fun learning about the life cycle of a frog last
week and will be reviewing it this week.
We will also be planting seeds and growing sunflowers as we
observe and learn about the life cycle of a plant.
