Week of May 9-12, 2022

Major Groups of Dinosaurs - Fossils and Paleontology (U.S. National Park  Service)

Hello Room 108 Families!

I was looking at the calendar this morning and realized that we don’t have much time left until the end of the year! We are about one month away from the last day of school. How wild is that?! As always, thank you for your participation in supporting your child’s academic development this year.

What Did We Learn About This Week?

Our letter this week was Y. We talked about the sound Y makes, as well as words that start with Y (yellow, yo-yo, yodeling, yolk, yarn, etc.). How many items in your house start with letter Y? I challenge you to find as many items as you can that start with Y!

We had so much fun learning about dinosaurs this week! The students were archeologists this week, as they searched for dinosaur bones. When they found the bones, they had to match them to the fossil images to determine what type of dinosaur it was. Furthermore, the students made their own dinosaur fossils with Play-Doh! The students looked at images of dinosaur bones and fossils and created their own dinosaurs.

The students practiced their art skills by drawing pictures of dinosaurs with chalk. We brought dinosaurs outside one day. The students looked at the dinosaurs and used them as models as they drew their own.
