PK Class Party - Pump-it-Up
Our special Garden Party with our moms was the highlight of our week! Your sons were over the moon to have you join us and give you their special Mother’s Day gifts! We hope you enjoyed this special celebration in your honor.
We have been reviewing and practicing many skills this week. It is fun going “back in time” to find a letter song to sing each day. This is helping us reinforce what we know about each letter’s shape and sound. The boys are enjoying listening for familiar sounds in words and identifying the letter that makes each sound! The boys are developing the skills needed to be independent thinkers and learners. They drew their last Mat Man of the year this week! We hope you have enjoyed seeing their improvement between August and May.
We also had a great end of the year celebration with our 6th grade buddies on Monday. The boys played on the playground, ate pizza, and hugged their buddies goodbye for the summer. They have formed such special bonds this year, and we hope your son will continue to pray for his buddy or buddies over the years!
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

We zipped up Z week by learning about our LAST alphabet letter! We talked about things that begin with the /z/ sound, learned about zebras, sorted zoo animals, and cut zigzags! It is exciting to think that we have learned each letter, shape, number, and color. We will be having fun with games, activities, and lessons, which will help us review. There is still so much to learn before we leave for summer vacation!
We are looking forward to our PK Garden Party celebration with our moms next week! The boys have some special things in store! We hope you have a wonderful weekend and get an opportunity to enjoy the spring weather!

Yippy the yellow yak came to visit this week and helped us learn more about the letter Y! We brainstormed things that begin with the /y/ sound, made yellow art, and searched for letter Y in our names! We even got to bend and stretch on Friday when we practiced our yoga moves! Yogurt was a yummy snack for the 25th letter of the alphabet!
We are having fun playing in the beautiful spring weather. There are new flowers, trees, and insects everywhere. In case you haven’t heard, we are expecting baby praying mantids any day now! We have been inspecting our three pods each day for the last two weeks and hope to be greeted by a few hundred nymphs early next week!
April showers bring May flowers, and May is just around the corner! Have a nice weekend!
