Here we are … in June, the final month of school…”
It is the last 12 school days for Kindergarten at GCS.
Talking with the children last week, I said: ” Remember when we started reading blends and how challenging it was?”
“Yes…” they said.
“Now look at us! We are reading short four lined stories with two vowel rules and special sounds and sight words in them… you have worked hard this year. You practised and practised and now that seems easy peasy… you didn’t give up in the challenge. Turn to the person beside you and say “You did it! You didn’t give up!”
The look on their faces was priceless. Next year when things seem like a challenge, remind y0ur child of what it felt like to keep trying and not to give up. Let your brain grow a new skill. They can do it. if they need extra help, find help for them. You are on a new adventure as a family, embrace it, encourage challenges, God has a good plan for your family. Thank you for sending your child to Grace Kindergarten.
Friday: Show and tell (student’s choice)
Library: please return any library books you still may have under the bed etc…
Last Day of School for the Jk and Sk will be Tuesday, June 18th. This will be a Half Day of School for all the children in our class. More information will follow.
