Baby animals was the theme for the week. We started out by what we call human babies (younger children). We came up with the term “kid”. We then discovered a kid is a baby goat and we should call humans children. We went over the easy animals such as cats/kittens, dogs/pups, but went on with ducks/ducklings, chickens/chicks, pigs/piglets, manatee/calf, geese/gosling, peacock/peachick, kangaroo/joey.
Interjections!!!!!! We learned that the Interjection enhances the message of the sentence. If the Interjection is followed by a comma the emotion is not strong but if the Interjection is followed by an explanation mark that emotion is pretty intense.
Food Chains was the subject for the week. We learned or was reminded that animals eat other animals. The animal that is doing the eating is called the predator and the animal getting eaten is called the prey. Food Chains can be one, two, three, four part food chains. For example…. You have corn getting eaten by a mouse. The mouse gets eaten by a snake. The snake gets eaten by a hawk.

This week we learned about Life Cycles. We went over the life cycle of mammals which is a very boring life cycle as our birds, reptile and fish. We did discover that the life cycle of a toad/frog is a bit more unique (jelly eggs, tadpoles, froglet, frog). Although, the life cycle of the butterfly is very interesting (eggs, caterpillar, chrysalis / cocoon, butterfly/moth).

This week we learned about Adverbs. We now know Adverbs describe Verbs and is represented by an orange circle with the grammar symbols. Adverbs usually end in “ly” and if anyone asks how you are doing the Kindergarteners know to say I am doing WELL.
We continued to practice for the International Festival and created The Leaning Tower Of Pisa. I am so proud of your children for the hard work they put into this event. They worked hard learning their lines, learning songs, and helping with the creation of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I wanted to thank Kathleen and Sabrina for their hard work preparing your children for The International Festival.
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
