January 14th - 18th

Last week we studied penguins and learned many facts about what they eat, their habitat, and ways they move.  We used our movable alphabet to write phonetic sentences about penguins.  This week, the kindergarten students did some "editing" and rewrote their sentences using the correct spelling and starting each sentence with a capital letter.  Can you believe kindergartners are working like first graders!  I'm so proud of the work they are doing!  This week our words of the week are:  will, with and the letter of the week is Kk.

This week in Social Studies, we discussed Martin Luther King, Jr.  With the help from our Scholastic Weekly Reader and many fantastic library books, we learned that Martin Luther King Jr. was a hero!  He was a kind and peaceful man who wanted everyone to be treated equally.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is famous for his "I Have A Dream" speech.  The students created booklets that show pictures of how Dr. King's dreams have come true!

This week, George was our student reader.  He read to the class and did a wonderful job!  The boys and girls enjoyed a story about an otter who needed to take a bath!  The story was called, Otter, Oh No, Bath Time!
