FINISHED! FUN! FATHERS!

 

Way to go kinders!   I am SO proud of all of your hard work these final weeks of school!  You have FINISHED the end of our kindergarten year together.  As we all know it was not the way we preferred it to be….which is together.  I LOVED seeing all of you during my visits the last week of school.  Your amazing messages on driveways, signs, and very generous gifts warmed my heart SOOO MUCH!!  I cannot begin to thank you enough.  Parents, your amazing perseverance, and flexibility during this whole year has been truly unbelievable.  From the start to the very end, your support has meant everything to me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

As your summer and FUN move along, there are blogs that will be updated with school supplies lists.  So far we have been instructed to keep with this tradition.  Usually, in the first week of July, teachers update their blog for next year’s students.  In this blog, there is usually a wish list or school supplies list that is posted.  I would recommend keeping your eye on first-grade teachers’ blogs to see if there are any supplies listed in July.  The first-grade teachers’ blogs can be found by clicking on this link  Georgetown Elementary School blog.  All teachers are listed on the right side, be sure to scroll down to see them.  I wish you a FUN filled summer and don’t forget to keep in touch!  I won’t say goodbye, only see ya later.  You will always be able to find a warm hug and a loving heart waiting for you from Mrs. Bohl. 🙂 

Usually, we end of the year by having our kinders do a special gift for the FATHER figure in their life.  With our unique end to the year, we went with a virtual gift. Below is a video. It is a gift from your kinder and their friends to all of the Father figures in their lives.  I wish everyone a VERY HAPPY FATHER’S DAY.  May June 21 be an awesome celebration of Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles, Step-fathers, and Father figures alike.  

Questions you might have:

1.  Will I get an end of the year report card for my kinder?  NO.

2.  When will I find out my kinder’s first-grade teacher?  Middle of summer, July ish.

3.  Who will be our principal at Georgetown Elementary?  The interviewing process is going on now.

4.  What if I have questions over the summer?  Please reach out to Mrs. Bohl and I will do my best to find the answers or help you find someone who can.

Week 10 at HOME (May 26-29)

I hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend! The weather was absolutely beautiful and the sunshine was a wonderful mood booster. We are starting our second to last week of learning at home… we’re almost there!!! Keep up the amazing work. I am SO incredibly thankful and proud of all that you have done with our sweek kinders! Our Zoom meeting will be tonight, so make sure to check your emails for an invite.

Popcorn Words: Review – Try and spy as many popcorn words as you can in our morning message!

Math:

  • I can find the number that makes 10. For example: 5 + ? = 10, 4 + ? = 10. Kinders will be using a base 10 frame to solve the problems.

ELA:

  • I can think about books.
    • Journal prompt: Write about a time you had to wait for something. How did you feel?

End of the Year Work

The end of the year is fast approaching and can often bring LOTS of anxiety in children.  My goal  has been to help the kinders feel proud of their accomplishments this year and celebrate our time together.  So while we have been having enjoying some fun activities during our last days together, the focus is on how much we have grown.  This week I have incorporated a book that explains what it is going on in our classroom or building during these last weeks of school.  So far we have read the following books about….

SUMMER LEARNING – Designed to explain how the kinders can keep their brains active and continue learning during the summer.   In your kinder’s folder today there was a Summer packet. This packet contains literacy, writing and math activities that your kinder can work on over the summer. Happy Learning!!

CLASSROOM CLEANUP— Designed to help the kinders be part of getting the classroom ready for a new batch of kinders next year.  The booklet helps to explain how the classroom (and our building) starts to look different.  Today we worked as a class family to organize and resort our book library.  (Sorry, I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of the how well the kinders did working/cleaning/sorting.  They were AMAZING!) . We will spend a little bit of time cleaning up other areas tomorrow.
