We went back in time and learned about Ancient Egypt. We learned that the leaders or kings were called Pharaohs and when a king died they used a method to preserve them called mummification.

The ancient Egyptians had a a written language called hieroglyphics which incorporated symbols such as cats, humans, and other daily objects. We also learned that the ancient Egyptians were responsible for building the Great Pyramids and The Sphinx which has the body of a lion and a head of a man.

Academic Enrichment Weekly Theme:
The kindergartners learned about fractions this week. We learned what that a numerator is the number on the top in a fraction that shows how many parts are taken from the whole number and Denominator is the number on the bottom of a fraction that represents the total number. We broke down fractions using circles, squares, triangles, and how many boy/girls were in the classroom.
We practiced writing in cursive writing sentences (sometimes silly sentences).
