Monday, May 4, 2020 "May the Fourth Be With You"

Today, May 4th, students, staff, and TBD families are invited to participate in a Star Wars themed spirit day! Some ideas include dressing like a star wars character, wearing star wars-themed clothing, listening to star wars music - ultimately doing anything that revolves around Star Wars! Be sure to take a photo of you and your family enjoying this fun day and share it with Mrs. Boyce. [email protected]

Morning News: May 4, 2020

Morning Routine: (oral)

Today is May 4. Let's count backwards from 30 to 4!

Repeat after me: Today is Monday, May 4, 2020. 

What day is today? What day was yesterday? What day is tomorrow?

It is a new month. What month is it?

What kind of weather is it outside today?

Today is the 147th day of school! Count to 140 by tens and then add SEVEN more! 147!

*If we were using our straws to count, we would have 100 straws rubber band together in the hundreds column and now 4 groups of 10 (40 straws) in the tens column and seven straws in the ones column. (I was a day behind so we skipped 146 - hope no one notices hehe)
It is the month of MAY! 
We have a new song for the month of May. Please practice the song and add a border if you are able to print it out. If you cannot print, please consider writing the song on a piece of paper to make a border. Ms. Corbett thinks of flowers, butterflies, different animals, Mother's Day, and "all things spring" during the month of May. Your pictures should represent what you think of in May!

HERE are the months of the year songs where you will find May.

SPECIALS: Monday is our busy specials morning. If you need to spread out our specials or complete them at a later time, please do what works best for you and your family.
