Memorial weekend already!! We are winding down with our work but still have some things to cover! We had a theme for this week – ‘safari’. We looked at the African savannah and saw where animals live ‘in the wild’. Next week we will look at animals in captivity. We started watching Lion king. That was our first (and only) real movie as I really don’t believe in that. We watched it because we had talked about the ‘circle of life’ and some had a hard time with understanding that. We are planning a ‘safari’ outside but unless it dries up it will be a little difficult to hide paper animals!
We are well into chapter 12 and subtraction and we are finishing up work in our dictionaries and hopefully we will get some more handwriting done.
Thursday we watched the junior high band concert. It gets the little ones excited about playing. As usual they were very good.
Our Zoo trip is coming up fast. For those of you who plan on driving I will be sending home the Zoo admission form. You will need this to get into the Zoo to show you paid the group admission through school. You will still have to pay parking. I will also be sending home a note advising you of meeting times for arrival and departure. Let’s hope for good weather!
Have a wonderful Memorial weekend! Come back ready to finish off our year in Kindergarten! We are on the last 10 days of our counting caterpillar and it is shiny!!!!
