Dear Parents,

This is what was going on in our KG classroom last week 🙂

English: We keep making huge efforts to read and the girls are getting better and better at blending the sounds together. They actually managed to read big chunks of text. If you would like to practice, here’s the link to the story.

Math: We’re done with the unit on money. It has surely strenghtened girls’ skip counting by 10s and addition skills as well, but most importantly, we all had fun playing shopping! Both, online and in the classroom.

Science: Experimenting with magnets was just great. The girls were very enthusiastic to discover their force and learn abour fair testing by trying out which magnet could hold 36 paper clips, scissors of different sizes and, an ultimate test, a box with a metal handle.

Mathematics: In math, we began learning about money. We are working with pennies, nickels, and dimes and counting different quantities of coins.

Science: In science we continued our unit on motion and discussed different forces that can be put on an object. For example what happens when you push a swing, or roll something down a hill.
