Letter Ll Week

This week we will study letter Ll (lamp, ladybug, love, lion) and begin our LAST unit called Ready for Kindergarten!  We will begin discussing our transition to Kindergarten next year and also all of the skills we have learned in Early Start.  We have discussed the importance of knowing our letters/sounds for Kindergarten.

We are also still monitoring our caterpillars and they are beginning to form their cocoons!  When that happens, we will move them to a butterfly net and await our butterflies!!

Upcoming Dates:

*Kindergarten Registration is next Wednesday, May 8th from 8am-5pm at home-zoned school.  Please take this opportunity to get this done!

Letter Dd Week!


This week we will study letter Dd (dog, dice, door, dinosaur).  Please discuss words that begin with this letter and practice identifying this letter in print (books, food labels, signs, etc.)  We will also conclude our unit on Growing and Changing this week! I can’t believe the year is flying by.  I have a special surprise for the students tomorrow….we will be observing something growing and changing!  I can’t wait for them to see this!

**This Wednesday 4/25 will be “Dog Day,” where students will be invited to bring a stuffed animal dog to school (small enough to fit in their backpack) and we will complete a dog-themed craft for letter Dd!

**3rd 9-weeks checklists will be sent home Wednesday.  Please remember to register your child for Kindergarten on Wednesday, May 8 at their home-zoned school.  If your student has not had their 5-year physical, you should be able to still register for Kindergarten and turn that part in at a later date.

**Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 11 when the Early Start students will present an End of the Year program for their families!! It will take place at 10:00am in our gymnasium.  Students will wear their Sunday Best.  Invite your close family members! You will hear more about this at a later date.
