Dear Families,

      This past week your child finished writing and assembling his or her bird book.  The books are beautiful, with an introduction, a table of contents, and four chapters!  You will have a chance to see the bird books on our Celebration of Learning Night on June 15th from 5:30-7:00 at the school.

Your child will be able to show you lots of fun bird activities as well as our baby chicks!  Please plan on coming for about 20 minutes and feel free to bring your whole family.

      It is hard to believe that we only have a few more weeks of school.  Every year, on the last day of school, I have an awards ceremony and I give every child in the class an award.  This year I will be giving the awards from 10:30-11:15 on June 22nd.  Please fill out the paper attached to this newsletter by next week so I can know how many parents are able to come. 

It is a special event, because we celebrate the fact that every child has given our class a special gift!

      The children are concluding their study of informational books, and on Friday I had children work in teams to read non-fiction books about animals other than birds.  It was so fun to watch them sit side by side and read and learn together.  The children shared information about dolphins, sharks, cheetahs, lions, penguins, puppies and lots of other animals.  They have come so far from the beginning of the year when most of them would have insisted they couldn’t read a book by themselves!

      Let’s hope the sun we saw on Sunday will reappear this week!   All the best,   Kristie
