This week, we are wrapping up our studies for January. It has been great fun learning all about mammals, hibernation, migration, winter, MLK, and the beautiful continent of Africa. We had many visitors come to speak of their worldly travels. Ms. Rakiya also returned to tell stories of her homeland, Nigeria.
Progress Reports are being sent home in the students’ Friday Folders. Please make sure you check the folder and send it back empty on Monday.
In February, we will learn about the continent of Asia, community helpers, dental health, reptiles/amphibians/dinosaurs, black history, and Valentine’s Day. We will host a small Valentine’s Day brunch on February 14 at 9:00 and hope all parents can attend! This is our way of thanking you for all your support throughout the school year. Be on the lookout for more information. Also, on Valentine’s Day, please be sure that your child brings in Valentine’s cards for each child in the class to hand out. There are 26 children. Please do not address the back of the cards for easy disbursement. Each child will hand deliver around the circle, like a mail carrier.
The kindergartners will go on their next field trip to Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach on Friday, February 23. Permission slips will be sent home in the upcoming weeks.
Thank you to Mattie, Claire’s mom, and Caitlyn, Mario’s mom, for coming to our class weekly and helping with letter sounds. Your support is greatly appreciated.
We are excited to welcome Ms. Zoey Willis, our new UNCW intern. She started in mid-January and has adjusted well to our wonderful class. If you have any questions about Ms. Zoey, please feel free to contact me.
We appreciate all you do for our class.
Ms. Samara, Ms. Alyssa, and Ms. Zoey
