A Note From the Teacher

Dear Parents,

The children have really enjoyed our unit on penguins! We researched penguins through books and even on the internet. Did you know that there are many different types of penguins and that they live in Africa, Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand, and South America? We also discovered that the Emperor Penguin is the largest penguin and the Little Blue (AKA…Fairy Penguin) is the smallest. The children worked with partners to explain some of the facts we have learned about penguins:

  • How do penguins move?
  • How do penguins eat and what do they eat?
  • How do penguins protect themselves from the cold and/or from other predators?

The children hen created a brief video to share with you. In library, the children have started using an app called "Seesaw". Each child has his/her own Seesaw account that allows each parent to see what his/her child is doing at school. I have placed directions for this in your child's yellow folder. Please take some time to view and discuss this creation with your child. They did a great job and learned so much! We will continue to use the Seesaw accounts to share work with you throughout the remainder of the year.

Thank you as always for all your help and support this year as we continue on our kindergarten journey! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Don't forget to curl up with a good book
