Thank you! Thank you so much for all of your support at home this school year. It was a challenging year to say the least. But in spite of it all, the students have made so much progress and I greatly appreciate all of the hours you spent working with them at home. I have really enjoyed getting to know your children, watching them grow throughout the year, and teaching them Spanish! They have worked so hard and learned so much, it will be hard to say adiós to them.
End of Year Party The room mothers are organizing an end of the year party on Friday, May 28th. It will include games and a pizza picnic. If your child is interested in having pizza for lunch, please send $3.00 to school. If your child does not wish to have pizza, he/she may pack a lunch for that day.
Wrap up for summer Many parents and kids have asked about access to programs we are currently using over the summer. In between pool time and vacations, it is important to keep up the skills they have learned this year!
RAZ Kids I will adjust reading levels on RAZ Kids one last time. You may continue this over the summer as long as it is available (I am not sure when the subscription expires but I will not reset for my new class until August). Please know that if your child exhausts the books at his/her level, you can get to other levels by going to the “Reading Room” icon. I have shown the students how to do this as well.
Prodigy I am not sure when this subscription will expire either but you may continue to use this throughout the summer as long as it is available. Other math games on my website will also be there for them to use.
Writing Keeping a journal about family trips or activities with friends is a great way to keep writing over the summer. Students can also type stories they have written/new stories and find pictures to illustrate them on Google Docs.
If you would like to download your child’s Seesaw recordings for the year, the link to the instructions is below. All of the pictures I have taken over the year are in here as well so it can be a photo book of memories of their first grade year too.
- Connected family members can download a .zip archive of their child’s work from the Seesaw website.
- Share this link as a Family Announcement to tell families how.
