Welcome to 4K Virtual Learning Opportunities

Dear 4K families,


We want to acknowledge and celebrate how truly remarkable our SASD 4K community is. Although we have always known that to be true, it has been proven again and again as we all respond to a rapidly changing world.


Over the course of the last few weeks, our 4K educators have been working to lift our instruction into a virtual format. Resources for your children will be housed in one virtual spot. When you click on the link you will be taken our 4K Virtual Learning sites. Once there you can click on the school that your child attends and you will see the learning plans for the week. Teachers have provided a daily schedule with activities and videos for students. They will update this each week as we continue to hunker down at home.


4K Google Site


As we look forward, we urge you to check your email often for updates. If you have questions, concerns, know that we are all here for you. In short, we will figure out how we begin living apart together.


With deep admiration and gratitude,

Erin Conrad and Sara Jane Lee

4K OWL Curriculum

This week our 4K friends will focus on Shadows and Reflections.


Shadow Vocabulary: between, dark, light, shadow, sidewalk, wall.

Amazing Words: entertain, errand, practice, pretend, whirl, whistle.

They will focus on naming shapes, the long 'a' sound and blending 2-3 sounds together.


See the fun shadow play our Martin Luther 4K Teacher Anita's children did at home last week in the pictures below.
