It’s Been a Busy Week

In language arts our vocabulary words were compete, hobby, and partner.  Our sight words so far are belike, am, can, I, a, see, and the along with the color words red, blue, green, yellow, orange, and black.

We are now working on lowercase letter formation.  This week we practiced c,o,s, and v.

After reading the book Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems we sequenced the events in the story and identified the characters and setting.

In math this week we played games which focused on the concept of more and fewer.

 

Science – Gonzales

We learned about light and heat.  We learned that light travels very fast and that the sun is our largest source of light.

Science – Manning

The students learned that sound is a type of energy.  Our ears are used to catch the sound vibrations.

Spanish – Stanfield

We continue to practice the numbers 1-10 and all colors. We also learned words associated with family – mama, papa, hermano, hermana, abuelo, y abuela.  The children colored a booklet called Mi Familia .  Ask your child about the Uno, dos, tres chocolate song -our new song for the week.

Amazon Wish List – Lee Kindergarten Wish List

Several people asked if we had an Amazon wish list so we have created one.  Thank you ahead of time if you choose to donate.  Please ask your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
