Reading Readiness: May 4-8, 2009

Dear Parents,

Well, as everything else in the world, summer classes are nearing their end. The fourth week is done and although it saddens us to bid farewell to each other, we are glad of the time well spent, the new friends made as well as the new lessons learned.

This week we busied ourselves with learning the letters Jj, Kk, Ll, Qq, Vv and Ww. Of course, we did not forget to review last week’s letters and even those from way back when we began summer four weeks ago. Of course, we also spent time preparing a little something for our dearest Moms as they celebrate Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, May 10. We hope that in our own little way, we can show you just how much you mean to us and how, even years from now when we have grown along with our little hands printed on your special card, you will continue to be a very important part of our lives. Let this be our way of telling you how much we love you.

All About Ysabela

On the second to the last week of summer classes, we are pleased to note how at ease Ysabela has become in class. Her most favorite time is “play time” especially since Yaya began playing along with them. The class’s favorite game is catch or find the ball. In as much as she enjoys play time, Ysabela also knows the minute Barney begins singing “Clean up” that it is indeed, time to clean up. With some reminder, she would help in the cleaning up and then would sit herself on our group area.

During discussions, Ysabela tries to focus and pay attention and stay seated as best as she can but there are still times when the urge to move around is just too great that she can’t resist. Yet, even as she moves around I the room, she still takes part in the discussions and is well able to cope.
