2018-2019 Supply List

Welcome to K5 at Chandler Creek!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer break.  We are excited to welcome a new group of students and families to CCE in August.  Teacher assignments and Meet the Teacher information will be sent out the beginning of August.  If you want to get a head start on school supply shopping, our supply list is below.  It should be the same as the list posted at local retailers, with the addition of a few wish list items.  **Remember that many retailers will have 'Back to School' sales and special pricing during July and August.  School supplies typically have MUCH better pricing during this time, so wait for those deals!**   :)

Bye, Bye, Kindergarten!

We had a wonderful last few days together celebrating the end of school!  On Friday, June 1, we were able to celebrate the 2018 seniors from area high schools who attended CCE as students!  I look forward to our sweet friends coming back to visit us in 2030 for this celebration as well!  We also had our "Books at the Beach" celebration!  Each student took home 10 free books thanks to PEP Greenville!  On Tuesday, June 5, we had a popsicle party to celebrate being one of the top 2 classes who brought in the most Box Tops for Education!  Our class brought in 725 box tops!!  This program helps our music teachers purchase music, instruments, and other things needed to enhance our music instruction.  On Wednesday, June 6, we clapped out our 5th grade friends as they prepare to go to middle school next year and enjoyed our last day in Room 004.  We started our year with the book Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten and ended it by reading Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the Last Day of Kindergarten (see selfie below!).  We look forward to watching these sweet students grow over the next 5 years at CCE!  Please stop by next year and say hello!  It was a truly wonderful year together!  Happy Summer!  :)


 



 


 



 
 
 

SWAMPED! and a special guest...

On Thursday, May 31, our class, along with Mrs. Boland & Ms. Groner's classes, presented the musical SWAMPED to our parents and families!  Students worked so hard to learn the songs, movements, and their lines.  We were so happy to see all of the families and friends who joined in our classroom following the performance to celebrate our students and their hard work in Kindergarten this year!  Thank you for always supporting our students and our class! 





 


 

Earlier that morning, we had a special visitor!  T brought his pet, a spotted gecko named Rocky, to show the class.  We saw several lizards on our field trip to Lake Conestee Nature Park in April, which T and his dad were able to tell us about since they were familiar with that type of animal.  T told us about his own pet, and we were happy to be able to extend out learning!  T taught us about what lizards eat, explained his shelter, and students were able to 'hold' Rocky (or let Rocky rest on their shoulder) by choice.  It was a very exciting visit!  Thank you, T!

Lake Conestee Nature Park

We traveled to Lake Conestee Nature Park on Wednesday, April 18!  It was a beautiful spring day and the animals were taking advantage of the sunny weather!!  Students enjoyed searching for animals in their habitats, hunting for animal homes along a nature trail, and experiencing nature first hand.  Lake Conestee has multiple trails, a playground, and a dog park.  This would be a fun and free activity to do with your family as well!!  Check out their website at                                                  www.lakeconesteenaturepark.com for more information. 


 Do you see the animal in nature?
 
 





 Our nature guide spotted salamander eggs!  They are in a jelly like substance similar to frog eggs.
