Your kindergarten students have been learning how a pronoun (we learned about 6 of them .. he, she, it, we, they, you) takes a place of a noun. He is a boy, she is a girl, but never ever call a person an “it”. we also learned that the adjective describes nouns and of course can describe the pronoun.
No sight words or synonyms due to the International Festival
