Well, Butterflies, it’s time to gear up for our last adventure of the school year. This month we’ll be exploring the continent of Antarctica. We’re going to learn about the environment, animals, and people that live there. Our focus in math will be reviewing the addition and subtraction concepts we’ve been learning about. Our friends have been doing amazingly in working with and mastering those sounds. This month we’re going to introduce capital letters and sentence building while going over word spacing as well as the use of a period.
To keep enhancing those sensorial skills, we will be making our own smelling bottle materials. As time is passing, the seasons are also changing. Our Butterflies will be introduced to one of our favorite seasons– summer. While getting ready for all those fun summer activities, our friends are going to learn the how-to’s of shoe tying, so we can hit the pavement running! We will also introduce and recognize Flag Day. Last but certainly not least, we will celebrate our favorite joke teller, monster fighter, and advice giver–our one-of-a-kind Dad. Happy Father’s Day!
While it wasn’t the ideal school year we all planned for, we had an amazing start and are ending on as best a note as possible, given the circumstances. I want to thank each and every one of my Butterfly families for making my first year as a lead teacher so wonderful and memorable. I can’t thank you enough for trusting me with the grandest task of nurturing and educating your precious babies. It has been an honor to watch and be a part of their growth this year.
To my Butterflies that are flying off to new adventures: while I am going to miss you very much, I know you’re going to continue to work hard and make me so proud. To my Butterflies that get to hang out with me again for summer and fall, I can’t wait to continue making more beautiful memories! As much as I’ve taught you this school year, you, my friendly Butterflies, have taught me just as much. Thank you for making the halls of Oneonta and the walls of the Butterfly classroom a little brighter with those beautiful smiles, hard work, and happy spirits. While this is the end of our school year, it is definitely not “goodbye” but “see you later alligators.”
Enjoy your summer everyone,
