Dear Primary B Families,
Since this is the final Weekly Note of the year, we wanted to start out by saying thank you for your collaboration, your trust, and most importantly your children!
We have begun the wrapping-up process for our school year. We wrote culminating frog and toad poems, put finishing touches on our projects, and worked and played hard all week long.
After a bit of a delayed start due to a bus mix-up, we made it to The Schuylkill Center where we visited one last pond, Polliwog Pond. Students had the opportunity to scoop for tadpoles off the side of the dock and in the shallows of the pond. While we did not catch a lot, we were able to see tadpoles, frogs, froglets, and a dragonfly nymph up close that had been caught by previous classes. We also learned a new game, Smaug’s Jewels.
Next week is a time for us to come together, work together, and prepare for the summer. We will be sending students home with a summer work packet on Monday, along with their year’s work throughout the week. We will go to The Schuylkill Center one last time on Wednesday. On Friday, students do not need to bring anything with them, and we will dismiss at 11:30 a.m. from the yard.
Questions to ask you child…
What type of poem did you write about a frog/toad?
How did your practice run for your project presentation go?
A look ahead…
