"Dolphins" Letter of the Week

   We will be learning about dolphins this week. There are over forty different species of dolphin. Dolphins are highly intelligent marine mammals that live in water but breathe through a blowhole on the top of their head. They are friendly and extremely playful.  Dolphins live in social groups of five to several hundred.
    Parent Information: Many beautiful dolphins are killed in tuna nets. Biologist have estimated that 650,000 marine mammals are killed or injured each year due to fishing practices.  Of that, 300,000 are dolphins and related cetaceans, and 350,000 more are seals and sea lions. 
   We will be learning numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.  Our song is "10 little Dolphins".
