Right to Read Week Wrap Up

We had a great week! It was fun to have a different pace with Right to Read Week activities.
We had school wide reading times in the hallways. I was so impressed - all the kids were able to read for 15 solid minutes without losing interest or giving up!

We walked to Stepping Stones park with second grade and did buddy reading. The kids did great with this as well!

Wednesday, we had a book swap. It was set up kind of like a tailgate to go with our sports theme, so we had music playing and popcorn. The kids in our class all were able to take home 2 books to keep!

On Thursday, we walked to the public library for story time with Miss Jill. She signed up our class for the Summer Reading Program, so you can start filling out your reading logs! The library has a lot of activities every day of the week during the summer, so I encourage you to check them out!

We did some switch days with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. Our class went to each room to do a different activity. In my room, we made "foam" fingers. This turned out to be much harder than I expected but it was a good lesson in perseverance!

We also had guest readers throughout the week - thank you for taking your time to read to us! I enjoyed hearing some different books than I've seen before.

This week, we also released our butterflies. Some were not too interested in leaving our butterfly habitat!

We only have 4 days this week, and there is a lot packed into those days! Please use your newsletter to help keep track of everything! The most important part of this week, in my opinion, is Wednesday! We do not do a kindergarten graduation at East, but we do a Kindergarten Celebration following the school awards. Family members are welcome and invited! K-5 has awards at 8:30 in the gym that all families are invited to, and then when that is finished, we will have our program in the gym as well.

It was so nice to see so many of you at our family picnic on Friday! I thought we had a great turn out, and I hope you enjoyed yourself!

Thanks for all you've done this year - it has been a great year in kindergarten!
