Upcoming Events:

June 7 - The graduating seniors will be walking down the halls of CRES. Our kiddos will be recognizing the seniors and all of their accomplishments! We are so proud of our 2017 grads! 


What we are learning: 

*Behavior: We are continuing to work hard every day to learn as much as we can before we move on to first grade.  

*Letters: We will not be learning any new letters for the rest of the year, but we will continue to review all of the tricky sounds and blends. 

*Words: Review words come, there, was, where*** We will  also be introducing first grade sight words to those that have already mastered their kindergarten sight words for the year.  Keep working hard kiddos!

*Writing: Letter formation, finger spaces, and correct punctuation. We are also beginning to learn about the question mark. 
    ***Journal writing: Writing either two sentences about a topic, or writing one sentence with two ideas using the word and to connect two         ideas. 

***We will be starting a new type of classroom journal this week. Be on the look out for pages being sent home.  This type of journal "squiggle" is their favorite writing of the year. 

*Math: We have now switched to learning about basic subtraction by using pictures, objects,and numbers and counting to 100.  We will continue working on this topic for the next couple of weeks. 

*Home practice: 

    -SAM Books   **I am so proud of all of the kiddos for working so hard on their Sam books at home.  Thank you for all of your help with                                     working with them.  It is really paying off.     Keep it up!   We currently have 8 kiddos that have completed all 52 of the                             books.  I look forward to seeing other students progress as well.
