Spelling Words

Since Spring Break the Kindies have been working on learning spelling words, five each week.  They are learning to say the word and then stretch it out to hear the beginning, middle, and ending sounds.  There are no tests given at the end of the week but we do hope that these words will become the basis of our reading repertoire.  We are taking a little break from the routine this week but next week’s words are: bag, beg, big, bog, and bug.

Here are a some photos of the kids building their words in fun ways during Centers:


Summer Uniform

During the months of April, May, and June (as well as September and October) Highroad students may wear summer uniform pieces.  These include (for K-6) navy shorts (Neat Uniform brand only) and black, white, or brown sandals (must have a back strap). Please make sure there are no additional colours, patterns, lights, or animated pictures.  Socks are optional.  Having said that, it is a good idea to have an extra pair of socks in your child’s backpack for when they change into their gym shoes.

The Big Surprise

Last week we learned a very big word…oviparous!  It is what we call animals that lay eggs.  We also knew that there was a surprise coming to our class on Thursday.  You may have already heard that we are now the proud owners of six cute little caterpillars!  It’s going to be fun to watch them grow and change in the days and weeks ahead.  Feel free to come into the classroom and see them!
