We had a great last day! Have a great summer! We will miss you until we see you again!
We had a wonderful celebration! Thank you so much for coming to celebrate our amazing kindergarten year and our awesome kindergarteners…I mean first graders!
Here are a few photos from the fun!
This week the kids made growth portfolios! These portfolios show a small part of your child’s growth and learning this year. Please take some time to look through them with your child and reflect on all they have accomplished. The kids are remarkable!
The portfolios will be in their kindergarten memories bag which they are bringing home today. There are also a lot of other fun things in the bag your child will love showing you!
We enjoyed a final activity with our 3rd grade buddies. We had popsicles on the playground and then shared the writing we have been working on. We shared a graphic novel and they shared their memory books. The kids talked about what they like pd about their partner’s writing and what they could work on to make it even better!
Wow, we had an amazing service project this year. The kids learn a lot and spread a lot of joy in the process of completing this project. Our books and place mats helped the kids practice reading and writing skills. Our penny drive gave us a chance to apply counting and money skills. The kids worked hard with Ms. Martin to perfect a wonderful concert to perform as well.
We ended up spending about $438 on snacks, games, and baskets/tissue paper to set up our gift baskets for them. We spend about $70 to get shirts to tie dye as a gift for all the residents and the remaining $130 went to a gift card to Little Caesar’s so Columbia manor can have a pizza party.
Silly. Hot. Fun!
We had a great time creating, inventing, decorating and generally exploring and mess making! We learned about a few interesting scientists and artists for inspiration like George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, and Grandma Moses.
More pix to come soon in our service learning video and our end of the year video we will play during the end of the year celebration!
Mrs. Starbuck is expecting a baby girl in October. The kids made her the cutest growth chart ever with colorful see creatures! Congratulations Mrs. Starbuck!
