In Jewish studies we started the week by finishing Purim! We enjoyed getting together with the whole school to celebrate. We quickly started learning about Passover. We are learning the Haggadah and the Passover Seder. We have made our own Seder plates and matzot. We are excited to work on Passover projects for the next few weeks 🙂 We are learning new vocabulary along with the holiday.
In general studies this week we have been BUSY. We had so much fun learning about the Arctic this week. Our new amazing words lead us to learn about penguins, whales, and icebergs! We got to go to the science lab to learn about Penguins a little more. We know that Penguins have ‘blubber’ on them to help them stay warm in the arctic, so we got to feel what it was like to have our own blubber!
We also enjoyed our reading centers this week. This really gives us time to be independent learners and explore on our own!
We finished up our writing workshop stories and we are finally excited to move on to Opinion writing! We have so many books to share 🙂 We are great writers!
During math we have decided to DIVE in to number bonds. We spent the last two weeks playing with numbers bonds in a variety of hands on way. We used cubes, paper chains, squares, magnets, and more. This week we ventured into addition!! Can you believe it? We also celebrated (late) the 12oth day of kindergarten.
Todah Raba to our lovely mystery reader! What great books we got to hear, we loved them 🙂
Stay tuned to see what happens next week in Kindergarten! It is sure to be exciting!!!
