Kindergarten News

This week in English Language Arts Kindergarten continued reviewing all the phonetical knowledge we acquired since the beginning of the second semester. We have been practicing the letter sounds, consonant blends, our sounding out strategies, and little tricks such as the Magic E. We are becoming better readers and writers day by day!

Our sight words of this week were; me, my, up, down.

In Maths, we have been revising our 2D, flat, shapes in preparation for next week’s new topic!

Finally, we began a new unit in Science. This month we will be learning about Matter and its states. This week we learned how to classify matter intro three most common categories; liquid, solid, and gas. And we observed how matter changes its states by carrying out an experiment. We examined what happens to water when we place in the freezer and when we place it on a sunny windowsill. The result were quite shocking!
