Kindergarten News: 2/24

Hello Families!
We are continued looking into the history of America and making connections from life in the past to life now. We discussed two Presidents- Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Students made comparisons and wrote about how life has changed based on our texts “Home Then and Now” and “School Then and Now.” We are practicing how to read and spell words with digraphs. In math, we are continuing to work with teen numbers and place value.
