Welcome June!

I can't believe it's already June!!! The year has flown by! Lots of fun things to announce. I updated the important dates page, click here. I will be sending a letter home regarding our class' stepping up celebration soon. Note, all kindergarten classes will be having separate stepping up ceremonies in their classrooms so each class will be at a different time. Students will be able to be taken home after (if you wish).

Our chicks hatched last Friday! It's been super exciting for our class to experience. The students have been observing the process each step of the way. They've gotten to look at the chicks and pet them as well! We had 9 chicks hatch!

In reading and writing, we have been immersing ourselves in nonfiction! Reading lots of nonfiction books and learning about the different nonfiction features (table of contents, headings, captions, labels, diagrams, etc.) and we apply that learning when we write our own all about books.
In math, we have been learning about 3D shapes by creating them and finding them in our classroom!

Reminder, tomorrow is our trip to the Queens Botanical Gardens. Please make sure your child wears comfortable shoes for the walk!
