Mother's Day Tea:
Invitations will be sent home next week for our Mother's Day Tea.  We ask that each student have an adult present for this event.  If you, the mother, can not be here, please ask another family member to attend in your place.  You won't want to miss this special event.

Memorial Day Sing:
Our kinders will be paying tribute to all the men and women who have lost their lives fighting for our country by singing patriotic songs for you on May 26th in the cafeteria.  More information to come, but we are expecting to sing at 10:30.

Last Day of Kindergarten:
Our last day of kindergarten is approaching fast.  I can hardly believe it!  We will have a field day on June 8 and will follow this with an end of the year celebration in our classroom for our students and families.  You won't want to miss our Kindergarten Celebration in our classroom.  I do this event in lieu of a graduation.  Our school does not do kindergarten graduation but I assure you, this is a special celebration and I hope you all can make it.  More  info to come!

 One Minute Read:
Continue practicing the short vowel One Minute Read.  If your child is still working on the Priority Words, it would be a good idea to keep practicing that list too.  

Homework:
Thank you for supporting your child in the homework process.  You are helping to instill good habits that will help them be successful in future grades.
1.  One Minute Read:  Be sure to practice daily.  Instructions are clear on it.  Return in folder on Friday.  I'm really noticing the students who are improving in this!!  It makes a HUGE difference in their reading!
2.  Word Family Practice:  Instructions are on it.
3.  Share homework

Don't forget to have your child complete the Daily Homework, nightly reading, and sight word flash cards.

Don't forget that taking time to read TO your child is extremely important.  You model fluency and voice as well as spend valuable time with your little one!
