SEAL Unit - Ecosystems
Dear Kindergarten Families,
We have been enjoying learning about the Biomes of the World. Your child has been learning in depth about the Ocean, Desert, Rainforest, Polar Region, Wetlands and the Grasslands. You may have heard your child recite/sing chants that we have learned in class. The Ecosystem Chants are Predators Everywhere, Animals in the Desert, Living Organism Boogoloo, Habitat Song, Conservation Sound Off and Compare & Contrast. Your child has been learning new vocabulary to help them better understand what they are learning. They have heard many books read to them and their favorites are Welcome Home Bear and Cactus Hotel.
We will be having a Gallery Walk and a culminating activity on Thursday, May 25 at our Open House. Please save the date as I know your child will enjoy teaching you all about what they have learned about the Ecosystem.

THANK YOU to all the parents who chaperoned our first field trip this year. Although it was cloudy and wet, it was a fun day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium! We hope you enjoy some of the pictures that the parent volunteers shared with us.
