Dear Parents


First of all, thank you for attending PT Conferences! It's always a pleasure having you here.

This week we have been focusing and questioning about the things that people throw away and their characteristics. As we keep studying about RRR, we will learn concepts and skills in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts and even technology. We will also be developing thinking skills to observe, investigate, ask questions, solve problems and test our ideas.

We have a recycling center in our dramatic center. We are starting to classify them by what they are made of.

It is amazing to experience with the children their excitement and love for our environment and seeing them empowered by what they can do to support and take care of our planet!

PK Reuse Project

Dear Parents,


-The children are so impressed with all the activities they can make out of recycled material, and how fun and easy it is to create a simple game, toy, instrument, etc. The project we propose is simple and fun! Help them create any game they want related with letters, numbers, patterns, or rhymes using all recycled materials. There are so many ideas you can use: bottle caps, plastic bottles, even a pringles can! Make sure your child puts a name to the game, and attaches the rules /how to play.

If your child needs extra help brainstorming for a game show them pictures and have them come up with one. You can Google: Games or toys made out of trash or recycled materials and you will get so many ideas!

The idea is for each child to present their game to the class, and we will place them in our Toys & Games center for the rest of the class to use. If you can send it on Friday 15th that would be great!

-Have them cut letters out of old magazines and newspapers and let them write their name, or words they are able to sound out.

-Try to read them a story at least once a day!!

-Visit the following sites:

http://www.starfall.com/

http://pbskids.org/games/

On these sites your children will have the opportunity to play educational games and interactive activities for learning math, science, reading, language, social studies and more.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at any time.

We would love to see pictures of you and your children creating these fabulous games!!

Kind Regards,

PK.4 Team

Reciclaje

Reciclaje en Costa Del Este – Costa Recicla


Una de las mayores tendencias en la actualidad – El reciclar o el Reciclaje, que es una actividad muy importante para la sociedad y el medio ambiente, ya que mediante este proceso ayudamos con la reutilización de elementos y diferentes tipos de objetos que de otra manera serían desechados, creando de esta manera más basuras y, en última instancia, dañando de manera continua nuestro planeta – algunos de las cosas que desechamos tardan hasta miles de años en descomponerse.

Costa Recicla Logo


De esta manera nace Costa Recicla en Costa Del Este Panamá, una iniciativa conformada por un grupo de personas de Costa del Este que busca concientizar y formar a la comunidad en el tema y la importancia del medio ambiente. El grupo tiene la visión de desarrollarse como un movimiento ecológico que logre hacer del reciclaje un hábito en todos, y así ayudar a impulsar la adopción de una mentalidad verde.

Actualmente cuentan con un centro de reciclaje detrás del edificio de la Administración, que ha ido constantemente creciendo y mejorando en funcionamiento desde su inicio en enero de este año. Sin embargo, el proceso también depende en gran parte de los usuarios: enjuagar y sortear correctamente los materiales es de vital importancia para que se aproveche y recicle el material completo.
