TREE UNIT



Our class began exploring our new study unit: Trees! We were observing and comparing trees. We read the story ABBIYOYO and Sid the Seed. Next week we will 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, branches, etc.

We need your help to enrich the children's learning! If you work with trees, or know about trees please let us know! Perhaps you're a gardener, forester, tree trimmer, trimmer, tree farmer or might know someone who is.

Special Thanks to our Mystery Reader

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

Trees Activities

Using Technology in the class

Our Actors in Action- I think they are ready for Broadway

Bringing Literature to Life

Our study unit on books has also come to an end. We had a great time learning about parts of a book. On Monday we celebrated Dr. Seuss birthday! We read one of his very known books: Cat in the Hat. They had acted out Jack and the Beanstalk to the rest of the PK 4 classrooms, and we also enjoyed learning new stories. After our little PK 4 assembly, we did rotations, and each class visited all classrooms to get to know about the author and books they have been talking about the past month. They enjoyed popular stories like Pete the Cat, Cat in the Hat, and Jack and the Beanstalk.

Thank you for your help.
