Hello dear parents,
We are so happy to have all of our children back from the holiday break! As this week unfolded we prepared for new experiences. Our children will be engaging in a short new unit for the next three weeks; Rocks! They seem to have been enjoying the fact that they can find them all around. Now they are quite interested in learning about the different types of rocks. We will be presenting diverse activities to get them to explore and learn more about rocks and where they are found, what they are made of, and how they are used.
If any of you by chance make jewelry, do rock climbing or anything related to rocks, you are more than welcomed to come and share your experience with us.
During this unit we will learn new vocabulary, use thinking skills to make predictions, investigate and solve problems. In math, we will be counting, comparing and patterning rocks. In literacy, we will be using rock letters to identify upper and lower case, make short words and explore sounds. We will use rocks, paint and sand in our art center and find different uses for them.
We invite you to go rock hunting and have open discussions with your child about these rocks attributes and what they feel like, look and see if you both can identify the different ways rocks are used around your home and neighborhood.
