June 1st - 4th

 

This year has been filled with wonderful and exciting experiences for your children.  Though we have faced some challenging times this year, we stayed focused and did our absolute best each day we were here.  We have worked hard and have learned a great deal.  I'm very proud of my kindergarten class and look forward to seeing them as successful First Graders!  I want to thank each parent for choosing HCA to be a part of your child's early childhood experience.  I am truly blessed to be a part of your child's journey!





Using the Montessori Moveable Alphabet the students shared what they liked in kindergarten this year!

Summer Work
Each kindergarten student will receive a summer work packet.  The packet contains vocabulary words from our readers and words of the week.  The students can review the words, practice spelling, and using them in sentences.  The packet also contains math activities, helpful websites, and instructions on reading throughout the summer and completing five reader review worksheets.  Summer work can be handed back in September.

Thank you for your continued support throughout this year!  Have a wonderful summer!

May 24th - 27th

 

This week, I wanted my class to share their wonderful reading skills with our younger Early Childhood friends.  The students have worked so hard this year on becoming strong readers.  Each child chose a book to read.  We took some time to practice reading out loud using a strong reading voice and sharing the pictures from the story.  Here are short clips of each student reading to the younger children.  I am so proud of my students!  Enjoy!
