It has been such a pleasure to work with
your children this year!
This summer please help your child read
regularly so that they maintain their skills and enthusiasm for reading.
Consider regular trips to the public library. Encourage reading fiction and nonfiction
Some other activities that support thinking and
having fun are playing games such as checkers or chess, keeping a journal or
diary, writing letters to someone far away, measuring to cook a recipe, and watching
the map on a family trip.
Consider making a visit to our Community Garden
that is located behind our school. Our class helped in the garden this
spring. Your child might want to pick
some vegetables for your family to enjoy!
Have a wonderful summer and best wishes for a
terrific 6th grade year!
Mrs. Jocelyn Shaughnessy
