Wow!! The school year is really over?? That time went fast! Thank you all for choosing the St. Thomas 4-K program. I hope you and your child enjoyed their first year of school, I know I did! It was wonderful meeting all of you and teaching your children this year. They were a great group of kids! Have a safe and fun summer and see most of you next year as Kindergartners!!
This week the class reviewed their alphabet letters. Mrs. Michalik tested them again on how many letters they knew, there was some great progress!! The sheets will be with their report cards. The children worked on letter recognition using the ipad and various worksheets. They did more addition problems and started subtraction problems. The class made grass buddies to take care of over the summer. Only 3 more days of school and then they will be Kindergarteners!! So hard to believe!
Graduation will be held in the School Hall next Thursday at 10:15.
This week the children came up with 76 "D" words. Delightful!! The story was "Ditto Dog". The children worked on making their Fathers a gift this week. Tuesday morning we practiced for the concert in the church so we were unable to go to the computer lab. The children did use the i-pad to listen to stories. The children did a fantastic job singing at the Spring Concert, Mrs. Michalik brought in donuts! Wednesday the class walked over to library for a story time. Thank you Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Cramer for walking with us. Did you hear that Mrs. Michalik will be in the dunk tank at the final program? The children did a great job with their first addition papers. Keep up the good work!!
Next week the class will be reviewing the alphabet and doing adding and subtraction problems!
The children came up with 67 "M" words. Marvelous!! The story was "Merry Mouse". The class made Mother's Day gifts for their loving Mommies! MAPS testing was still going on this week so the 4-K did not go to the computer lab this week. The children played musical instruments on the i-pad instead and taped their song so we could listen to it. The class did their last graphing worksheet, learned how to spell twenty and write the number 20. Next week we will begin addition problems!
Thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week. I am blessed to have such good students and great parents!
The class practiced their songs for the Spring Concert next week. The concert will begin at 6:30 in the Church on Tuesday, please have your child in the Uhen Center at 6:15.
The class will also be walking to the Library on Wednesday and Mass on Thursday. The letter will be "D" and the children will begin addition problems.
The class came up with 49 "N" words. Not bad!! The story was "Noisy Newt" and Mrs. Michalik read a story about Noah's Ark. The children made an ark to go along with the story. Do they remember what happened? This week we were unable to go to the Computer Lab because of MAPS testing, so the children worked on the I-pad in the classroom. They traced all the numbers 1-20 to practice for their homework. We had some great items come in for Show & Tell, the children used the magnify glass to look at all of the nature things. The class graphed 19 triangles, spelled the word nineteen, and wrote the number 19. Mrs. Michalik has a surprise coming in the mail for the classroom. I gave the children three hints; one, it was something that was alive, two we could not eat it, and three it would be in our classroom for the rest of the school year. There answers are on the board in the classroom! I wonder who guessed correctly?
Next week is the letter "M" , the number 20 and the class will begin addition problems.
MORNING DROP OFF: Unless your child is arriving late, after 7:30 AM, they should be dropped off in front of the church not the school. Busses need to get in to drop students off and it is a safety issue. Thank you for your cooperation!
