Hello Kindergarten Families! Well, we made it! We are in our last week of kindergarten! It is with great joy, excitement, and lots of love when I say that this has been an amazing year! I thank you all for the trust you have bestowed on me in helping your child with their success during their first year of elementary school! Thank you so much for the support, encouragement, and kindness you have shown me. Thank you for all you do for your precious children. Please continue to work with them over the summer. They will still have access to MobyMax and myOn. Please help them login as their will be a summer learning plan. SO…..with all that said, look out first grade…because here comes an amazing group of shining stars! From the bottom of my heart, I wish my students all the best!!!
I plan on making this announcement on Thursday, but since the I already told my students…. here is the announcement. I am leaving Miller to teach Young 5s at Oakman. Although I am excited to teach Young 5s, my heart can’t help but feel bitter-sweet as I say goodbye to my Miller families! My students have a permanent place in my heart! I pray that they always know how much they are loved, how amazing they are as the unique individuals they are. Each one is going to make this world a better place….I know they have made my little spot on this world a better place just by getting the opportunity to be their teacher. Thank you families, for ALL of your kindness and support! I invite you all to keep in touch. My email will remain the same. Please come and visit me any time at Oakman Elementary.

Reading: We are practicing many reading strategies. We will practice identifying features of narrative text such as characters, setting, and problem/solution. In addition, we will practice flipping the vowel sound in words. (ex. the o on hop is short o, but the o in hope is long o and says its name.) Please practice the following sight words: (These are words your child needs to recognize and read by sight.)
We will review the sight words we have learned! Please continue to practice these over the summer.
Math: We will continue to review 2D and 3D shapes as well as word problems for addition and subtraction.
Science: We will continue our science explorations. We will explore trees and their parts as well as weather!
Social Studies: We will continue to talk about ways to work with the common good to solve problems in our classroom and in our community.
Writing: We will write about our experiences in kindergarten as we complete our memory books! We will also write about our dads, grandpas, or uncles in recognition of Father’s Day! (Thanks dads, for all you do for your families!) 🙂
Again, I wish you a safe summer of happiness, love, and time spent with family!
Thanks for all you do!!!
