I had a couple of upcoming things to share with you.
The first half of the students, “Talking Zoo Project” (the yellow fact sheet), is due this Friday, April 28th. I will make a copy of the fact sheet and send the copy home with your child, so he or she can finish the second half of the project. The second half of the project is a poster board display with pictures and 3-4 facts about your child’s animal. The posters are due on Friday, May 12th. As part of their grade, the children will be sharing their posters with class.
Friday, May, 12th, is our Mother’s Day Tea. Please join us for songs, light refreshments and a chance to visit our classroom. If you are unable to attend, a grandparent or aunt is welcome. My goal is to make sure that every child has someone here for them.
Friday, May 19th will be our Talking Zoo presentation for families. I am asking that your child come to school with a costume representing their animal. The costume can be as simple as your child wearing black and white to school if they were a penguin. Place items your child will need in a reusable shopping bag. Masks are acceptable as long as your child can speak loudly and clearly, and air is able to move freely in and out of the mask.
Finally, I will need your zoo permission slips back as soon as you can. If you would like to volunteer, I will need your I-chat (background check) done as quickly as possible. I have the forms in my classroom. Please check with me if you think you need one or if you are not sure if yours is up to date.
Thank you so much for all your help and support!!
