Dear Junior Kindergarten Parents,
Was a great first full week back! We learned about winter animals and the letter Mm. The students enjoyed reading two versions of the Ukrainian folktale “The Mitten”. Throughout the week we worked on centers that incorporated the characters as well as compared and contrasted the two stories.
We celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and are learning all about bears. There will be no letter of the week but we’ll review all of our previously learned letters. On Friday, please have your student bring in a show and share of any letter we have already learned. Friday will also be “Bear Day” please have your student bring in a stuffed bear from home. Additionally, we have been preparing for our “Bear Hunt”(making a map and binoculars), which will take place on Friday as well.
