What a beautiful Kindergarten Moms’ Day we had! The Kinder kids showed their best manners offering mom a seat, refreshments, and polite conversation. And, they were so proud to show off their amazing artwork on the gallery tour. We want to wish all our wonderful moms a very happy Mother’s Day!

Also exciting this week was our field trip to the McNay Art Museum. A guided tour showed us many art works housed at the museum, and we really impressed the tour guides with our knowledge of art and the many famous artist we studied this year! Its always a great time to visit the McNay!

Besides the special events this week, we were busy putting the finishing touches on our musical experience  for our kindergarten graduation, creating a “welcome” bulletin board for next year’s kindergarten kids, working on contract, and playing in our Box Car Children dramatic play. We also wrote books about our feelings, and enjoyed some free time in art.

We want to thank Sebastian G.’s mom, Mayra, and Sebastian P.s mom, Avery, for providing a delicious home cooked meal for cafeteria day this week! The kindergartners have decided that meatloaf is their new favorite food!

We would also like to thank Sebastian G.’s family for a yummy birthday snack!

Next week is Mud Day! Come to school in your swimsuit cover up and water shoes. Don’t forget your towel, labeled with your child’s name!

Remember, graduation is Thursday! The children are so excited to celebrate the completion of kindergarten.

Have you been hearing your kindergartener talking about The Box Car Children? The kiddos have had so much fun reenacting the book in our dramatic play. They become the characters and go on their own creative adventures right inside our classroom. Stop by and see what all the excitement is about!

We have been busy getting ready for our upcoming special day for mom! The kinder kids have put their heart and a lot of work into some very personal gifts for mom.  They are also practicing their manners for the “tea party” that is part of our celebration. They are very proud to display their beautiful art work, and they can’t wait to take mom on a tour of the art show.

This week with Ms. Sudie found us painting like Monet! Straw hats and outdoor easels gave us a feel for how famous impressionist painter Claude Monet painted in the garden.  We were inspired by his style of painting nature and created our own bridges and lily pads!

Next week is our big McNay Art Museum fieldtrip with Ms. Sudie! This is an exciting trip to look at many of the artworks by the artists we learned about throughout the year. Following the art tour, we will have a picnic out on the grounds. This is a great time to have once last get-together so, please bring your own lunch and join us! We will send home a flyer next week with details.

As kindergarten comes to and end, we have been sharing our feelings about this important life transition.  Our discussions have been helpful. We have learned that all of us share many of the same feelings about completing their kindergarten year.  As your child’s kinder year ends, you may find that they are experiencing some feelings of excitement, but also fear and sadness. Please take time to listen to them and reassure them that their feelings are valid, and they are certainly always welcome to come back to visit The Acorn.

Also, as the last day of school approaches, we have a few housekeeping items to take care of.  Please, return all take home readers and travel books by Monday, May 6th.  

In addition, please make sure you visit the Sign-Up Genius which will be sent to you via email early next week, to schedule your end of year conference.
