Weekly Wrap Up

We spent this week learning to tell time to the hour. The kids did beautifully! Next year in first grade, they will learn to tell time to the half hour as well. We made clocks, we wrote the time with numbers, and we also drew hands on the clock. Test scores are on the parent portal.

We had more excitement in our class on Thursday - the caterpillars showed up! We learned about the life cycle of a butterfly and watched the caterpillars move around on the document camera. During centers in the coming weeks, they will be observing our caterpillars and watching them turn into a butterfly!
This week, we are going to start learning about money. Our sight words are day, made and has. We are working with oo in words. We also will be learning about insects! It's a busy week - keep working hard at home!
