What a Wonderful PK 4.2!
We had such an amazing UN day celebration! Thank you to all parents who came and joined us on this special day. The children did such a great job singing, we then enjoyed some delicious treats from around the world! The whole week we learned so much from our friends and their countries. The culture boxes were filled with so many interesting things that we all enjoyed. We sure live in a wonderful world ... !
Painting our Flags!
One of the activity we did this week, was getting to know our flags, and we each got to paint one, which decorated our UN day stage! The children did such a wonderful job while doing this activity, and we got to review colors, and shapes.
Sharing our culture boxes..
Our class is going to begin our new study unit: Trees! We'll be observing and comparing trees to learn about what lives in them, what they are made from, and who cares for them. We hope that this study will help children explore and appreciate nature. As we study trees, we will use literacy, math, and technology to explore the topic in depth.
If you are able to take a "tree walk" with your child, we would appreciate your help in collecting tree parts to investigate. If you can, please take a bag to a tree area and collect things that have fallen, such as leaves, bark, twigs, flowers.
We need your help to enrich the children's learning! If you work with trees, or know about trees please let us know! Even if your job is unrelated to trees, you can be involved in our study, and drop by and read us a book related to trees! :) We love visitors!
What you can do at Home!
You can help your child explore and appreciate nature by learning about trees. Invite your child to talk about trees. Share stories about your favorite childhood memories involving trees and games you might have played around them. Wonder aloud with your child to encourage his or her thinking about trees.
"I wonder why leaves fall from trees."
"I wonder what makes some trees grow so big."
At home, collect parts of trees, and encourage your child to sort them. Your child might also enjoy making a collage by arranging and gluing tree items on paper.
Thank you for playing an important role in our learning! <3
