Welcome to our Nelson
Our end of the year is almost here! We are in our last two weeks of school and I can honestly say the end of this year is going easier than any other year. Looping with these wonderful children makes my end of the year only sweet with no bitter. Thank you for trusting me with your children for one more year. We are all excited!
We have some fun days coming up. Tuesday May, 19th is our field day. I have requested bottled water and popsicles for the class. If you can make a donation that would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to send your child with a bottle of water to be used and refilled throughout the day as well. Our Awards Day is Thursday, May 28th at 9:15. You will be receiving an invitation to the ceremony if your child is receiving an award. Finally, our year end party will be May 29th beginning after lunch at 12:20. If you would like to send in some goodies for that day just send me an email with what your contribution will be.
As we wind down, we are still learning and growing in the classroom in spite of our excitement for summer. Please make sure your child is still reading throughout the week. We don't want any of the summer loss that is typical around the country.
As you can see above we celebrated Read Across America Day by dressing as some of our favorite book characters. We had a great time and we read a lot of fantastic stories!
We also had a special treat on March 11 which was Real Men Read day. We had some wonderful Army guys come to read to us! Here is the photo album of pictures form that day. They read us two great books and we had a blast! Thanks Big C and Sergeant Jackson!
The link below is a video of my class last year singing the multiplication songs that we will be learning in the next few weeks. We are already pro's at the 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's and 7's. We are working hard to master the rest and of course, we LOVE our subtraction song! Here's the link:
