***We will continue our author study of Mo Willems. Please feel free to bring in any Mo Willems books you have at home – especially Elephant & Piggie! (We’ve read ALL the pigeon books!)***
May is Mary's month, and we will honor Our Blessed Mother as we gather with our school community for our May crowning of Mary in the cathedral. We will be celebrating the monthly school Mass for the first time! We have matured so much this year, and are ready for this big step as we prepare for first grade. We will learn about Jesus' ascension into heaven and Pentecost as we continue to read from the New Testament.
We will honor the heroes who fought for our freedom as we learn about Memorial Day, and pray for those who are no longer with us. We will be learning to recognize American symbols and the meaning behind them.
We are nearing the end of the alphabet as we study Ll, Ww, Vv, Zz, Yy, and Qq. We will continue to review those tricky long and short vowel sounds as well!
We have been having SO MUCH FUN reading Mo Willems books! We just can't get enough of that crazy pigeon! We are now writing our OWN pigeon stories. We can't wait to partner with fifth grade as they help us transfer the pigeon books we write onto iPads using the Book Creator app! We are looking forward to our next author study - Kevin Henkes!
Healthy habits and hygiene are so important, and we will make sure we are aware of what we can do to protect our bodies.
The kindergarten scientists will be conducting experiments to reduce the effect of sunlight on ice.
We will measure and compare objects by length and width as we begin our measurement unit in math.
Of course, we will honor our mommies on Mother's Day. We thank you and appreciate all you do for us. We love our moms!!!!
"Be humble like Mary so that you can be holy like Jesus."
