Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Hello families & friends!

     Here are all of the magical moments from our last few days in VPK!

Coach Rebecca had our last P.E. resource in the gym! She had us warm up with lots of fun music, then we played basketball and freeze tag!  Thank you Coach Rebecca, for such a fun and exciting year in P.E.!! 🙂

Ms. Silvia who works with the little ones in Doobonim, borrowed lots of wonderful art supplies from the Cummer Art Museum! Huge rollers & kid friendly stampers, helped us to create murals! Everyone had a complete blast, being able to push the huge paint rollers and make lots of designs with the stamps! Such a FUN & great hands-on activity! Thank you Ms. Silvia for making this wonderful experience possible! 🙂

Our last Mystery Reader session for the year was from Nina’s mom, she read two books to us, Momma Built a Little Nest & The Night Before Kindergarten!  The Little Nest book had all of the students quite  engaged throughout the story, they were able to learn about different types of birds.  The Kindergarten book helped everyone to get an idea of what to except when they start school in August.  Thank you so much Nina’s mom, for being our last ever Mystery Reader!! 🙂

We asked everyone, “When I grow up, I want to be…” The responses surprised us and amazed us!! Interesting to hear their reasoning behind, their “career goal!!” Be on the lookout for all of these wonderful dreamers!                                                                                                                                           “And will you succeed?  Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)  Kid, You’ll Move Mountains!” -Dr. Seuss 🙂

Celebrating after a wonderful Moving Up Ceremony, with lots of big bear hugs, silliness, and endless amounts of laughter! Everyone did a fabulous job singing & doing all of the motions for the songs.  Not to mention, reciting the Ten Commandments and Their Favorite Part of VPK!                                Awesome work everyone!!!! 🙂

Dads and Doughnuts was a great bonding activity, for all of the little ones! They were able to eat doughnut holes and drink orange juice, while watching the end of the year slideshow! Lots of great memories were made! BIG thank you to all of the wonderful dads, who were able to make this special event! Happy Father’s Day!!! 🙂

      Thank you so incredibly much to everyone (parents & siblings), who came to our little corner of the world and surprised us with being a Mystery Reader! All of the reactions of pure joy, was simply priceless! Everyone enjoyed having the weekly surprise of a new reader to our class! We loved the moments when your session, became a mini lesson on a particular topic!! Thank you everyone, for sharing your love of reading with all of us! 🙂

     The school year is now complete and everyone is off for summer break, with all of their families and friends!  Although everyone has left, the memories stay and linger behind! Childhood is calling…

     Thank you everyone for a wonderful and successful school year! It was truly a pleasure to be able to nurture your child on a daily basis, and watch first hand their social, academic, and emotional changes throughout the year!  I hold near to me, countless memories from all the precious little ones!  As well as, many lifelong friendships were formed between four and five year olds!! 🙂

     Ms. Robin and I explained to all of the students on the last day of school, that it was the last day in VPK with everyone!  We have two awesome responses from that: “I can FaceTime you!” – Liam and “See you at Publix!” -Nina.  Please don’t be a stranger & let us know how you are doing! 🙂

Good luck everyone in Kindergarten and beyond!

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

VPK Rocks!

Thank you everyone for ALL that you do,

Ms. Ashley & Ms. Robin 🙂
