Weekly News and Reminders~~ April 14-18
New news: Good week to you!! We welcomed a new student to our class last week, Elijah M. Welcome Elijah. We now have 27 kids in our class. ~We only have 4 days of school this week, as Friday is a school holiday.~ We are still low on crackers for snack. If you did not send in a box of crackers last week, please send one with your child this week, thanks. ~ We will begin our Earth Day t-shirt painting this week. Thanks to all who sent in the $3 dollars for supplies and the shirt! ~ We will have a spring MAP test on Thursday! Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep on Wednesday, and has breakfast Thursday morning...every little thing helps focus and concentration!! ~ PAKRAT books will start again this week, but only M-W (because there is no school on Friday)~ School spring pictures will be taken this Thursday, April 17th~ I will have a sub teacher on Wednesday, 4-16, to be out of the building at a reading meeting~ We are looking for preschoolers for next year at Clearview. If you know anyone who is looking for a preschool for a 3-5 year old, there are several openings here at Clearview. Contact the office for more information! ~ Have a great week and a happy Easter weekend.
April themes will include: Spring, weather, environment/Earth Day, and transportation. We will begin a new science unit called Animals 2x2 (we focus on fish, worms and bugs). We will be painting Earth Day t-shirts in the middle of the month, which is a kindergarten tradition! Don't forget to check out the Clearview website for the latest information on school events, such as spring picture day, book fair and family fun night.
We will go on our last field trip on May 28th, to Amazin' Farm.
Thank you for spending time with books at home. Your child is bringing home PAKRAT books, library books, guided reading books and working on the iRead program (these all can be counted in minutes towards the DQ treats). Keep up the good work! Please continue to practice sight words, number recognition and the math/reading homework, too.
Guided reading booklets will be coming home each week with your child to read to you! Please sign and return when read. Feel free to access the iRead program on home computers. Passwords were sent home at conferences.
