April, April where have you gone?!? This will be our first 5 day school week, since the beginning of April! The shortened weeks, coupled with the new Spring weather, have made learning and focusing a tricky task for some Pre-K students.
However, we are still working hard here in the classroom! We are doing a mixture of review, as well as exploring new concepts. Some friends are memorizing sight words, while some are “graduating” from tracing highlighted work – to writing names, letters, and numbers ALL ON THEIR OWN!
Nonetheless, we are all growing and learning at our own pace. Mrs. Schaefer couldn’t be more proud with the goals that were reached and mastered this year, as well as those that are still being accomplished!
May will soon be upon us, which will bring us to our last 19 days of school!
