Ms. Coolidge Newsletter
April 1-4, 2019 *Needs: GLUE STICKS!
Almost all of the snow is gone from the Secret Garden now and we’re feeling more hopeful about Spring! After a cozy “Go Back to Bed and Read” morning (our prize for having met our goal of reading 100 books as a class!), we had a wonderful Mud Season visit to McNamara’s Sugar House and cow barns. We then stopped off at Edgewater’s greenhouses on the way back to school - such a treat to feel the warmth and see all the little green sprouts coming along!
On April Fool’s Day the children were greeted by a cranky silver haired substitute who read “Miss Nelson is Missing”, and kept everyone in line until Ms. Coolidge returned after lunch (in the same dress?!).
Meanwhile, we continue to review the letters and sounds A-Z, and too many high frequency words: said, want, here, me, this, what...
We’ve started to explore more about weather and the water cycle. Ask your child about our evaporation experiment. Our Alevin are out of their viewing basket now and hiding in the pebbles at the bottom of the tank. We are waiting to see them swim up to eat, the next exciting phase.
You may have noticed your child bringing home an odd assortment of well loved books and possibly a stuffie or two. In anticipation of retiring in June, I have been sorting through classroom books and shelves. On Friday morning June 14 we will be having our end of the year Kindergarten celebration, and you will be invited to come hear the children read their published stories. Please save the date! (I am flying out to BC June 17 for the birth of our daughter’s second baby :)
Meanwhile, next Friday April 12 the Kindergartners will be going to the Lebanon Opera House to see “A Sick Day for Amos”. Kait Jones will be taking them, along with Mrs. Formichelli, as I will be out. We have two extra tickets, so please let me know if you’d like to join us.
Here’s to a lovely, springy weekend. Enjoy! Ms. Linda Coolidge
