Week of February 17th

We had an Outrageous week in JK learning about the letter Oo. We made an olive letter card, and tasted green and black olives.

We have been rounding out our Red, White, and Blue unit by making connections between George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Donald Trump. We watched a Brainpop, Jr. on Washington and Lincoln and read George Washington’s Teeth by Deborah Chandra and Madeleine Comora. We made our own tri-corner hats just like our first president! We read Our Abe Lincoln by Jim Ayles and learned about what an honest man Lincoln was and how he worked to abolish slavery. After watching a Brainpop, Jr. about the jobs of the president, we talked about how we elect our president by voting. We were thrilled to attend the 2nd graders Yipes Stripes presidential parade on Friday!

Looking Ahead and Reminders:

 

Thursday, March 5th Student/Faculty Basketball Game

March 6th-15th Spring Break

Spotlight Special Area: Spanish
During February, the JK boys continue learning about winter and the clothing that’s worn during the winter.  Our favorite book we use to practice our vocabulary is “Froggy se Viste” (“Froggy gets Dressed”).  After I finish reading the book, we play a game to review the sequence of the story.  Then the boys color Froggy and the individual articles of his clothing, and then cut them out and paste his clothes on him.  We also play “El Juego de Memoria” (“The Memory Game”) to reinforce the words learned in the unit.  Finally, we sing songs about winter and how to dress for the cold.  Our concurrent unit is about “Los Lugares de Me Comunidad” (“The Places in My Community”).


Hasta pronto,

Señora Watson
