Only two more weeks of school left and it'll be all about review and prepping the kids for Kindergarten! They're all very excited to be going to a "Big Kids" class so we'll focus on what their new teacher's expectations will be. It's going to be very different for the kiddos, so hold onto your hats! I've sent home the Kindergarten requirements for OLM and if your child has mastered these, they're off to a great start. If your child is going to public school and have mastered the list, they're ahead of the game. The children won't be getting any faith based lessons in public school, so please help them keep up on their faith journey. They know many prayers, maybe you can say them as a family. I'm starting to get emotional...I die a little every year when school ends because I love the children so much. Now with me retiring, it's tenfold!
This week our themes are "Moving on and Ready for Kindergarten." We'll finish our letter review and concentrate on the letters Uu - Zz. We'll also work on patterns and ending sounds. In Second Step we'll learn about making new friends in Kindergarten. Lastly in Religion we'll revisit The Rosary.
Thank you again and again for allowing me to guide your precious children on their faith journey and on the road to Kindergarten. It has been such a blessing to me.
God bless you all,
Love, Miss C.
