Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that this is our last month together! We hope that

all of you moms enjoyed our Mother’s Day celebrations and that the

bath bombs we made for you brought you some well deserved peace

and relaxation.

This month is sure to go by quickly. Aside from a review of all that we

have learned and experienced together, we will only be covering one

theme: Life on the Farm. We will continue to perfect our knowledge of

recognizing (with the green class) and printing (with the yellow class) the

letters of our names. We will also be working on our number recognition

and fine motor skills, such as cutting, through our crafts and the

games that we play. As part of our year end celebration, we have

invited a petting zoo to visit our playschool! This event will be open to all

siblings, cousins, neighbours, and friends. We simply ask that any

additional visitors pay $5 to help cover the costs of this event.

Since the weather has been so good to us lately, we will continue to

spend lots of time outside playing organized games, setting our

butterflies free, and having free play on the park. We strongly

encourage all parents to send your children school wearing sunscreen,

sunglasses, hats, and carrying a water bottle.

Things to Review this Summer:

-Tracing/printing your name. (Green class: all uppercase i.e S-A-R-A-H,

Yellow Class: Uppercase followed by lowercase i.e.. S-a-r-a-h.)

-Fine Motor Skills. (Grasping pencils, markers, paint brushes, pinching,

molding and rolling out play dough.)

-Cutting with age appropriate metal scissors. (Green Class: might still

require some hand over hand or verbal prompts such as “Both thumbs

up!” and “Elbows in!”, Yellow Class: can start to cut more complex

shapes, with increasingly less prompting.)

-Reading Stories! Be sure to read together as much as possible. Ask

lots of leading questions, see if your child can predict what will happen

next. Role model using the pictures to tell the story, you can take turns

telling the story based on the pictures.

-Independence. Especially those of you moving on to Kindergarten next

year, this is very important! Practice cleaning up together after playing

& crafting, throwing away their own trash, tying shoes, and zipping

jackets and sweaters.

Special Thanks!

I wanted to thank each and every one of our moms, dads and

grandparents for making this such a great year. All of your hard work

cleaning, prepping crafts, organizing volunteers, and jumping in as

volunteers has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. I would also like to

thank all of the students! I have loved every minute of being your

teacher and will miss you all very much. I hope you all have the best

summer and that you have so much fun with Mme. Louise and your

new Kindergarten teachers next year!

Warmest wishes,

Ms. Sarah and Ms. Lindsay
