Curriculum Sharing: Thursday, March 9, 3:15-4:15 and 6:00-7:00.

This is an opportunity for the kindergartners to show family members some of their work. Also, look at their popcorn science project displayed on the bulletin board.


We enjoyed our Dr. Seuss celebration on March 2. The striped clothing added to our fun of reading his books.


The children have been having fun acting out the story “Benny’s Pennies.”


Recent Shape and Say stories: “Gertie the Greedy Goat,” and “The Up Umbrella.”


 Songs and Rhymes: “Song of the Popcorn,” “It’s a Shamrock,” “His Name was Washington,” “Abraham Lincoln,” “You are My Dollar,” and “One Cent, Two Cents…”


 Students are encouraged to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, Friday, March 17. We are learning a bit about St. Patrick, Ireland, limericks and leprechauns.


Also, this week we have begun learning “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Children are taking turns reenacting the story of Francis Scott Key at the battle of Fort McHenry. The kindergartners will be singing our national anthem at PK Park on the evening of the last day of our school year, June 16. (More info to come).
