    May 16th - May 20th

    Kindergarten will not have any more homework for the rest of the year! 

    Kindergarten graduation will be on Thursday, May 26th at 9am. You will need to take your student home following the ceremony and reception. Kindergarten will not have class that day.  

    On Friday, May 27th we will have a half day of school. Kindergarten pickup is at 11:45am.

    Please see a message below from Mrs. MacFarland:
    Dear Parents,
    I can hardly contain my excitement for the upcoming Art and Music Festival here at CCA Thursday, May 19th and 6p!!! It will be a fun way to celebrate our year together.  Please have your child(ren) at their teacher's class no later than 5:45p. You are welcome to have your child(ren) dress up, but I am asking there be no sports clothing (gym/sport shorts, jersey or t-shirts,etc). The gym doors will be opened for you to find a seat as early as 5:35p. Kindergarten and then First Grade will be singing at the start of the 6p program. Each class will file off the stage and be brought to the cafeteria where CCA staff will serve water and cookies. You are then welcome to go and reunite with your child(ren) there and then look at the artwork in the hallways.  If you have another performer in your family, please feel free to head right back into the gym with your Kindergartner or First Grader so you can enjoy the rest of the show.  For those families who have BOTH a Kindergartner and First Grader, please make arrangements with their Kindergarten Teacher so you can reunite with your Kindergartner while you are still in the gym . That way you can see your First Grader sing together.
    Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 
    Get excited!!!
    Mrs. MacFarland

    Our Learning this Week:

    Language Arts:  In phonics we will continue our unit on r-controlled vowels. This week we will focus on words with the ‘ir’ , ‘or’ , and ‘ur’ spelling pattern. We will take a spelling test on Friday. The words on the test will be a review of all of the phonics skills we learned this year. We will learn two new first grade sight words this week - ‘love’ and ‘people.’  During reading we will read several Jory John books and practice identifying characters, setting, and events. In writing, we will be creating a Kindergarten Memory book. 


    Math: This week in math we will represent numbers to 500 using pictures and write addition and subtraction fact families. We will have our last math fact assessment and written assessment this week! 


    Core: We will continue our plants unit. We will learn about what a plant needs in order to grow.

K-1 Specials - Mrs. MacFarland





    Kindergarten Art

    We will finish learning how to draw specific animals based on our Core Knowledge Music Unit: The Carnival of the Animals. 

    Public Service Announcement: Your child brought home their art bag from this past year. If you are returning to CCA next year, please go through this bag and see what can be reused for next year. The list is published under First Grade Art.  I will provide a new bag for them, but be mindful of some additional supplies they will need for First Grade art learning. Thank you!

    Kindergarten Music 

    We will finish our FINAL unit in Music, The Carnival of the Animals, by Camille Saint Saens. This Core Knowledge unit will show us how instruments can mimic the sounds of animals.  Students will not only be learning about the orchestra instruments, but also about tempo (fast vs slow) and dynamics (forte and piano) through this unit. PLUS we will be learning our graduation song, too. 


    Kindergarten PE 

    We are finished with PE for the year.  Looking forward to next year's fun :)
