Dear Parents,
This week, we reviewed the concept of number, added and subtracted sets of
objects, learned about spiders, and evaluated living and non-living things. Phew!
On Monday, we observed living and non-living things at the Garden Lab.
On Tuesday, we read our Shared Reading poem: Nonfiction Itsy Bitsy Spider. Did
you know that baby spiders are called: spiderlings? Too cute! You can find out
more about spiders by reading our poem on the Kindergarten website.
On Wednesday, we learned that spiders are arachnids. They have 8 legs. You can
see 4 legs on one side of their bodies and 4 on the other side. Hmmm…how many
equal sets is that?
On Thursday, we reviewed the similarities and differences between spiders and
ants. Spiders are arachnids…but ants are not.
On Friday, we invited another Mystery Reader into our classroom. Please ask us
to tell you about the story we enjoyed!
Have a happy weekend.
The Kindergarten Stars
