Kindergarten Newsletter

            Our letter of the week this week was E and over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase E as well as the sounds that the letter E makes (long E- eel, short e- egg).  We also reviewed our word wall words and added three new words: six, seven and not.  Next week our letter of the week will be J and we will continue working on all of our word wall words so far. 

            This week we also continued working on our measurement unit.  By the end of this unit, your child should be able to compare the lengths of two objects, order three objects according to length in nonstandard units (such as paperclips, cubes, dominoes, etc.).  They should also be able to compare the weights of two objects, identify which of three objects is heaviest and lightest to order them by weight, and understand the use of a balance scale.  We will continue this unit next week.

            Our science topic for this week was homes.  We discussed how many different kinds of plants and animals live in many different places.  We also discussed some of Earth’s habitats and the plants and animals that live there.  Our science topic for next week will be share the earth.  We will discuss how people need to use resources carefully, so that they don’t run out.  We will also discuss how some animals are extinct and others are in danger of becoming extinct and need to be protected. 

            Our social studies topic for this week was, “which way?”  We discussed cardinal directions as well as identified basic bodies of water near the United States and in other places on Earth.  Our social studies topic for next week will be holidays.  We will discuss some ways people of different cultures and countries celebrate holidays.
