PK Class Party - Pump-it-Up
Wednesday, 23 May 2018
HALF DAY - Last Day of PK
Our last full week was full of fun! The boys have had a blast going “back in time” to review letters we have learned this year. We have been trying more challenging puzzles together, taking math “quizzes”, and playing board games. We found some of our favorite centers to pull out for our last week as well.
We have loved celebrating summer birthday boys and enjoying the great books their parents have shared. It’s hard to believe summer is close. We will miss being together. We hope to see many of you this summer at PDS if you are signed up for activities here.
Have a lovely weekend! We look forward to seeing you all at our class party on Tuesday morning!

We have had a great year learning a new language this year. PK boys have been introduced to many words in Spanish during the school year. They learned some greetings, commands, days of the week, colors, numbers, names of items of food and drinks, animals, body parts, and clothing, to name a few.
We kept active playing many games and learned several Spanish songs. The boys really enjoyed singing and practicing the old and new vocabulary with me.
Our current unit is " La Familia" ("The Family"). They are learning basic vocabulary associated with the family and answering question with "Quien?" ("Who").
Have a great summer.
Our special “Mommy and Me” breakfast was the highlight of our week! Your sons were over the moon to have you join us and give you their special Mother’s Day gifts! We hope you enjoyed this special celebration in your honor.
We have been reviewing and practicing many skills this week. It’s fun going “back in time” to find a letter song to sing each day. This is helping us reinforce what we know about each letter’s shape and sound. The boys are enjoying listening for familiar sounds in words and identifying the letter that makes each sound! The boys are becoming the skills needed to be independent thinkers and learners. They drew their last Mat Man of the year this week!! We hope you have enjoyed seeing their improvement between August and May.
We had a great end of the year celebration with our 6th grade buddies on Monday. The boys played on the playground, ate pizza, and hugged their buddies goodbye for the summer. They have formed such special bonds this year, and we hope your son will continue to pray for his buddy over the years!!
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! We hope you can enjoy the beautiful weather!

Spotlight on Special Areas - A message from Mrs. Oliver:
It is hard to believe that May is already here and the end of the school year will be here before we know it. During the month of May will look at various countries and celebrating the diversity God has created around the world. Throughout this process your children will learn how to say the name of these countries in Mandarin. We will also discuss that how China has very few Christians and then pray for God to raise up Christians in their land. Lastly we will end the school year with a celebration. Your children have worked really hard in Mandarin class and have learned so much! Once again thank you for the privilege of teaching your children.
We zipped up Z week by learning about our LAST alphabet letter! We talked about things that begin with the /z/ sound, learned about zebras, sorted zoo animals, and cut zigzags! It’s exciting to think that we have learned each letter, shape, number, and color. We will be having fun with games, activities, and lessons, which will help us review. There is still so much to learn before we leave for summer!
We are looking forward to our “Mommy and Me” celebration next week. The boys have some special things in store for you! We hope you have a wonderful weekend and get an opportunity to enjoy the spring weather!
