Mrs. Durkee’s 4K

Week of May 8th

Our Bible story this week is “The Coming of the Holy Spirit.”  Our Memory Treasure is 1 Corinthians 12:3 “No one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.”

We are working on our transportation unit as well as some spring activities.

Our class field trip will be Thursday, May 25th which is our last day of school.  We will leave school around 8:30 or so to walk to the fire station where we will have a tour.  After our tour we will proceed to The Green Vine for ice cream.  They are offering us a special of $1.50 cones.  You are welcome to join us.  Please fill out the form at the bottom giving permission for your child to go and return to school by Thursday, May 11th with payment for the ice cream (cash or check payable to St. John’s).  

If you wish to order books, please have the order in by this week, Thursday.  You can order online with class code N9WD2 or return the order form with a check payable to Scholastic.  This is a great time to order books to read over the summer!

Have a blessed week!

Please read the book your child has chosen several times throughout the week and return it on Tuesday next week.  We will wait to begin our math bag until we have learned the routines.  

This week in class we will be reading the books, “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,”  “David Goes to School,” “If You Take a Mouse to School,” “Pete the Cat Rockin’ in my School Shoes,” and “First Day Hooray!”  

Not all of our centers will be open right away, but we will slowly open them as we learn how to take care of the items.  Later this week our science center will have magnifying glasses and items to explore.  Our fine motor area will have stickers and we will put them on the first letter of our name.  This week in the art center we will use glue, scissors, and markers.  

If you have not brought in your child’s gym shoes, please do so this week.  Also, don’t forget the extra set of clothes!
