Dear Parents,

It seems hard to believe that another school year is coming to a close, and that another group of children is moving on.  We have enjoyed your child very much, and we appreciated this opportunity to share in his/her growth over the past months.  We hope we have fostered a secure transition into elementary school for your child.  We have attached a schedule of events for the days ahead.

The month of June is a short academic month. We still have many things to tackle, but our time is quickly coming to an end!

In Language Arts, we will continue with our daily Fundations program, and we will be doing a great deal of creative writing.  The children will be writing and illustrating “End of the Year Books” as they think about and record their memories of this first school year.

In Math, we will have a celebration of numbers, which will give us the opportunity to review all of our math skills.  We will also be working on Topics 14 & 15 in our EnVision Math Program.  These two topics are a continuation of our shape study and a transition to grade 1 material.

In Science, we will explore the impact of the sun upon us and engineer and test some theories about ice cubes and how to keep a popsicle from melting.  We will address a Water Unit.  This unit will expose the children to the importance of this natural resource, and the need to conserve and protect our supplies.  We end our year with our Kindergarten Water Day!

In Social Studies, we will be working on a Geography unit on Mapping.  We will read the story “Me on the Map” and make a book focusing on where we are on different maps.  We will also do a mini-unit on Friendship.  We will consider behaviors and strategies for making new friends and keeping and enriching “old” friendships.  This unit will prepare children for next year where they will meet new teachers and classmates.  We will also briefly study about the American Flag and what it stands for.  We hope to see you all at our  Family Gathering on June 15th from 12:30 – 1:00.  Please send back the RSVP forms ASAP!

We are most appreciative of the constant support we have had from parents this year.  We realize that we ask a great deal of parents, and we recognize the contributing role you play in the success of our program and your child’s education.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.  It has made our year an enjoyable one.

Karen Hoyt & Emily Miliano
