Kindergarten News February 6, 2012 — Penguins

It was a very busy day in Kindergarten.  Along with our usual reading, CGI work and handwriting, we learned all about penguins.  We worked on penguin counting, sorting animals who can and can’t fly (penguins can’t) and penguin reading.

Our favorite activity was trying to balance eggs on our feet to understand how hard it is to be a father penguin taking care of an egg while the mother is off finding food.  We watched a few videos to learn some penguin facts; here is our favorite:  http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/animals/creaturefeature/emperor-penguin/

Check your child’s papers tonight for a permission slip.  We are travelling to Babbitt on Thursday to see the Okee Dokee Brothers.  Before we go we will do Read with Someone Special from 8:30 – 9:15 a.m.  This can be with anyone who wants to come in and read with the kids.  They really love the attention so we hope to see you here Thursday morning.

Remember that Wednesday is Crazy Hair and Socks Day.  Feel free to be silly!

Please remember to read and turn in your minutes for I Love to Read Month.  We have sweet treats for our readers!
