P.K. 4.4 NewsFlash

"Make every day a day to learn"

Last week, we started lists of children’s ideas and questions about clothes. This week we worked on investigations to expand their ideas, find answers to questions, and learning important skills and concepts connected to the features of clothes. We discussed different sizes in clothing, shapes that we see in clothes, and buttons and counting.

At home you can examine fabrics together, and discuss how clothes are made. Look at labels and find out where the clothes were made. Look at pictures from the past and note how the clothing differs from clothing today. Next week we will continue our exploration of clothing investigating how we take care of our clothes.

Flag Ceremony

This Monday, PK 4.4 led Flag Ceremony for pre-school! They did a great job showing other students how to stand straight and be respectful while singing the national anthem and the school song.
