MAY Memos from Mrs. Sharp and Ms. Groves
Thank you all for your support and involvement in our classroom! It is
hard to believe that we are nearly through with this school year! It has
been a pleasure to partner with you in the education of your precious
little ones! We have had so much fun learning and growing together!
May is quite a busy month and we have lots of end-of-year activities
planned! Be on the lookout for updates of events in the classroom and
school-wide! Please make every effort to arrive to school on time.
Tardiness can be quite disruptive when we have already started our day.
Also, remember to dress your student for outdoor play. Socks and tennis
shoes are advisable!
Thank you for all you do for both your student and our classroom! Even
the small actions of checking folders, sending in forms or supplies, or
communicating regularly have a big impact on our day! We count it an
honor to partner with you for our students!
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions,
concerns, or comments. You may reach us by email at or We
welcome your input and feedback!
We will continue our work center rotations in our classrooms this

show and tell activities. So far, we have learned letter “Aa,” “Ll,”
“Pp,” “Ss,” “Ff,” “Tt,” “Ww,” “Kk,” “Rr,” “Mm,” “Hh,” “Uu,” “Bb,” “Cc,”
“Vv,” “Xx,” “Oo,” “Dd,” “Ee,” “Zz” Qq,” “Gg,” “Ii,” and “Nn.” In the
coming month, we will learn letter “Jj” and “Yy.” That’s ALL 26 letters
of the alphabet! How very smart we are becoming!
To reinforce the concepts we are learning in the classroom, we ask
that students complete daily homework activities which are sent
home in folders on Mondays. Additional tasks that may help young
learners is name practice. No special tools are needed for this
activity; any type of paper and writing utensil will do!
