"Space" Letter of the Week

   

    I’m so excited we are going to learn about "space" this week.  We will be learning about the sun, moon, and planets in our solar system.  We will also learn the difference between an asteroid, meteor, and comet. It would be fun to look at the moon and stars with your child and find certain constellations, like the "big dipper". Our numbers are "9, 10, 11, & 12" and our song is "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". 

   Please ask your child the following questions.  Is the sun a star or a planet?  What planet do we live on?  Would you like to be an astronaut?  What is a comet?  What is a meteor?  What is an asteroid?  Which planet is the giant gas planet?  Which planet has rings?  Which planet is the red planet? 

    Ask your child to tell you the definition of our vocabulary words.  Our vocabulary words are: astronaut, planet, star, solar system, comet, meteor, astronomer,  pride, reptile, pod, species, marine mammal, marsupial, Australia, invertebrate, vertebrate, diurnal, ocean, entomologist, North America, herd, nocturnal, amphibian, metamorphosis, Africa, Asia, mammoth, matriarchal, ape, equator, extinct, herbivore, paleontologist, carnivore, retractable, omnivore, hibernate, cub, animals, mammals, plant eaters, meat eaters

    Please have your child show and tell you our Sign Language and Spanish vocabulary.  Sign Language and Spanish vocabulary words are: twelve (doce), eleven (once), ten (diez), nine (nueve),  eight (ocho), seven (siete), six (seis), five (cinco), four (Cuatro), Merry Christmas (Feliz Navidad), fantastic (fantastico), you are welcome (de nada), yes (si), no (no), goodbye (adios), excellent (excelente), three, (tres), two (dos),one (uno), zero (cero), purple (morado), brown (cafe), white (blanco), pink (rosa), blue (azul), black (negro), yellow (amarillo), green (verde), red (rojo), orange (anaranjado), please (por favor), hello (hola), friends (amigos), thank you (gracias).
