I’m SO PROUD of all the great things that are happening in class. Our students are so smart, careful, organized, and amazing. This is such a great time of year to see things really coming together and all the hard work paying off. Our students are so wonderful!!! I love them all and I’m SO PROUD of everyone!!!
I am so excited for this time of the year when the students are ready to begin BUILDING WORDS and having phonogram tests!!!! This stuff is so awesome at preparing them for reading, writing, and spelling; and the students are SO capable. I am loving seeing these older kids get ready to transition on to our “Practice Kindergarten” class in June. They will be laying the foundation and learning the essentials of joining the Kindergarten class in the Fall. Practice Kindergarten is a great way for the students to ease into the big change and different structures of the new classroom. In Practice Kindergarten, the eligible students are still dropped off with me in Sr. Preschool South. At about 9:40 am, they head downstairs to Miss Shyloh’s class to have the “Practice Kindergarten” experience in a shortened, condensed form for two hours (rather than the full four hour morning). At 11:40 am the students return to my class to finish out the rest of the class time with me and the other students that are not yet old enough for Kindergarten transition. It is the perfect balance of familiar with new, and it is always a great way for the students to develop a real love for the new class. Here are some pictures of those students that have been loving building words and having their phonogram tests. Most of them are Kindergarten eligible, but there are a couple younger students that are eager and happy to learn these fun new games also.

We were so excited to celebrate Whitnee’s birthday today!!!! She is such a big, smart, capable girl. We loved seeing her walk around the sun, and hearing about each year of her life. Whitnee was excited to hear the things her parents had written about her, and she elaborated on much of it with cute details and enthusiasm. Whitnee is such an adorable, sweet, loving, kind girl and we are all very lucky and happy to have her as a part of our class.

It was so fun to celebrate another birthday with Alvin! We can hardly believe he is now FIVE YEARS OLD!!!! I am so happy to see him growing into such a smart, intelligent, funny, and kind boy. He is so thoughtful, fun, and cheerful to be around. Nothing can ever get him down! He is always so nice to our friends and will be happy to play with anyone. I love seeing such a generous, loving, kind spirit. We hope it was a special birthday for Alvin. We sure do love him!!!
