Today we had our November 4 Winds! First the kindergartners watched a puppet show where they were told the three main types, or classes, or rock are sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous and the differences among them have to do with how they are formed. Then they got to check out various rocks and minerals including: granite, marble, slate, talc, sandstone, limestone, gneiss, pumice, pyrite, magnetite, hematite, quartz, amethyst, and mica.
Hopefully your kindergartner shared with you that yesterday during PE a fire truck and some firefighters visited the school. The kindergartners were very excited, I didn't get to watch the presentation but Mrs. Jarvis snapped some pictures to share! Ask your child what they learned!
Every week in the newsletter you will find the new word(s) the kindergartners are learning, by clicking here you can find the complete list (in the order the words are introduced)!
This week is our first week of Unit 2: Numbers to Ten
