Nine months ago we met your babies. Today, we send them off for summer so very changed. They’re so much bigger, they’re so much more talkative, confident, and engaged. What a whirlwind!
As most of you know, this was Mrs. Pound’s very first year of teaching, so she has learned right along side them. She is so grateful for your trust in her, and she thanks you for this opportunity. It has truly been her honor.
We will miss each and every one of our little ones and each and every one of you. May your summer be relaxing, full of adventure, and time well spent with your precious families.
In the fall, please come find us wherever our new classroom might be and know we’ll be looking for you, too.

Our work isn’t done yet! In May, we study sea life and the roar of the beach. We have some treasured seashells in our classroom, but if you have a favorite one at home, please share with us!
Next, we will take a walk through the zoo and see who makes his home there. The lions, the tigers, and the bears will come to life in a most fantastical way!
In our final weeks, it’s all about vacation and bubbles! Share your best vacation memories with us, and we will incorporate them into our lesson plans!
The end is near, but there’s so much more fun to have! Thanks for lending them to us for another month!!

Glorious spring has finally shown her face, and we are celebrating her in full force! We will follow the life stages of the butterfly and have a big release party at the end. Scavenger hunts will have us spying for caterpillars, roly polys, and other insects. We will spend as much time in the garden, and we’ll paint, we’ll play, and keep on growing like weeds!
As the school year winds down, we are looking for mystery readers. If available, please text or email me and I will get you on the schedule. Your kids will love this, and so will we!
Mrs. Pound and Mrs. Shackelford
