Brrrr! What a cold week! It looks like the sun is making an appearance today and hopefully will continue in the coming weeks. We’ve completed another week in kindergarten. And can you believe we only have 6 weeks left? At this point in kindergarten we are able to take on more complicated tasks and this week we especially enjoyed working together in small groups to plan and create posters during escritura. Check out the pictures below and be sure to read about it.

This week our sight words were abajo and ayudar. We focused on “ll” and “y” syllables – these are hard to tell apart! We also worked hard on using only Spanish. We getting more comfortable every day expressing our needs, asking questions and telling our stories in Spanish.
This week in writing we continued writing about protecting our environment. This inspired several kindergarteners to clean up trash during their recesses! We also worked together in our table groups to focus on one issue and each table created a poster to encourage others to protect the environment. We will display these in the hallway next week.
In Math, we are finishing up a long unit of reinforcement of basic concepts we have learned this year. We have taken a closer look at parts of 10, numbers to 20, teen number patterns, simple addition and subtraction problems and math stories. We will take a short test next week to show all we have learned.
This week in Bible we continued to read about Jesus’ ministry. We heard stories about how Jesus traveled and talked to people, sharing the good news and changing their hearts. We enjoyed the stories of Nicodemus and Zacchaeus who came to believe in Jesus when they heard his message.
We are enjoying some new “pets” in our room – caterpillars! We have already seen them grow bigger and fatter over the week and we are looking forward to seeing them make chrysalises and transform into Painted Lady butterflies.
