SK April 16th Adventure

Good morning friends! We’re off again on our bug hunt. Our word of the day today is pollen. Do you know what pollen is? Try to find a flower that is blooming and look for yellow dust….. that is pollen. Bees carry the pollen on their back legs. Can you carry something on your legs?


Yesterday we learned that Queen Bees only get fed royal jelly. When I first heard that I thought of jell-o! Royal jelly, which is also called “bee milk”, is made of mostly water and pollen too! Worker bees make the stuff, which gets fed to special baby bees who will become Queen Bees one day.

We also learned that there is only one Queen Bee. This is because the worker bees will only listen to one bee in charge! Want to learn more about bees? Let’s get started!


There is something interesting about the word pollen. Write the word on a piece of paper, p o l l e n . If you look in the middle of the word do you see something interesting? There are two letters the same. What two letters are the same? If you said, the letter L you are right. Some words have two of the same letters together and even names can have two of the same letters together. Does your name have two of the same letters together? Can you think of someone in our class that has two of the same letters together in their name? I can think of two boys and one girl. Write all of the names down of our friends and circle the three names that have a double letter…

Today you were learning about vowel teams with Ms. Andrea. Vowel teams are two vowels (a, e, i, o, u) that are beside each other. They don’t have to be the same vowels but sometimes they are the same vowels. Hmmm, I am thinking about the word bee. Do you see two vowels in the word? Double letters are everywhere!!!! I have an activity for you to do so put on your thinking hat. Look at the pictures and words that match on the side of the sheet. Some of the words have double vowels (a, e, i, o, u) and some of the words have double consonants (all of the other letters in the alphabet). Can you find all the words with the double vowels? I will include a link so that you can download it and do it at home. Cut out the pictures and then sort them into the right column. Have fun!


Word Hunt – When you are reading your next book try to find words that have a double letter. Did you find any?


We’re back again with Coach Kieran and this time we’re going to be adventuring under the sea!
