We are excited to have new blogging pen pals in Iowa. Our penpals are students in Ms. Swanson’s Menagerie. They’ll be blogging at this link, and we’ll be blogging here.
We are kindergarteners in the wonderful Kingdom of Bahrain. Most of us have Arabic as our first language, though a few of us started our lives speaking different languages, like Farsi or English.
Did you know people who learn additional languages tend to grow bigger brains? Mrs. Denise (that’s what we call Mrs. Krebs) tells us about this brain research all the time. She thinks that some of your class know more than one language too. That’s great! She hopes you ALL will learn English and Spanish. When you know two languages it will make learning three and four languages easier too.
This week we had parent-teacher conferences. Mrs. Denise told our parents we were doing better than last time and learning very much. We also had an English book fair. Many of us bought books to read at home. Sometimes we have an Arabic book fair too.
In one week we’ll have our school carnival. We’ll be sure to share pictures with you!
We look forward to getting to know you as we blog together!
Mrs. Denise and all the KG2 students
