ELC May Newsletter
News and events from the ELC at BMS
April, April...it does whatever it wants!
During this month, our ELC students have all moved into their "How We Express Ourselves" units of inquiry, and you will be able to view and enjoy some of the many ways the different age groups have learned to express themselves over the course of the year. During this unit, our students will be working on developing their emotional vocabulary as well as exploring materials and modes of expression. Of course, these inquiries are varied across the different levels and between the Preschool and Kindergarten, where they are following different central ideas and lines of inquiry. Please feel free to ask your children about what they have been learning!
In order to ensure that parents are aware of all details of the construction, we will be displaying the building plans, information, and updates on the information boards in our reception area from next week. We look forward to sharing further developments in a variety of ways - please feel free to follow our ELC Twitter feed @ELC_BMS for photos, notes, and comments about the building site.

Some questions that we find helpful in prompting students are:
-How did you create/make this?
-Was this easy or difficult?
-What is your favorite page (or favorite part)?
-What do you like about this?
We hope that you enjoy this special time for sharing memories of learning experiences with your child. Please keep in mind that every student will share in their own way, in a manner that is developmentally appropriate for them.
