PK 4.1 News Week 6
What is happening in pk 4.1?
This week we were talking about family members, recognizing your family and families around the world. We read Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Prek 4 teachers dramatized Goldilocks for our pk4 students. Kids were also acting out Goldilocks in the classroom. We also read and discussed the stories "When I was little and Fingerprint Family". In math, we are still working on number recognition. Next week we will start our new unit about clothes. We start the unit following three main parts:
Begin the Study, Investigate the Topic and Celebrate Learning!
Children are interested in clothes from a very young age. Babies tug at their clothing; toddlers study buttons, snaps, and zippers; and, by the time children are in preschool, they develop distinct preferences for colors, fabrics, and styles. Children's interest in clothing can be the foundation for learning about different kinds of clothes, a variety of fabrics, the processes involved in making and selling clothes, the specialized purposes of garments, and how clothes have changed over time.
We need your help to gather a collection of clothes. We will need spare clothes of all sizes, types, colors and fabrics. Here is a list of suggestions, but may also send in clothes that are not on the list.
jackets, coats, parkas, windbreakers, raincoats, ponchos, suit coats, blazers, vests, sweaters, sweatshirts, t-shirts, jeans, skirts, gloves, scarves, bandanas, socks, tights, trousers, dresses, bowties, belts, sashes, pajamas, vests etc.
As we study clothes, we will learn concepts and skills in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts and technology.
Every year, ISP contributes to the effort of Fundacion amigos del Niño con Leucemia y Cancer, better known as FANLYC. This is an organization that helps families of children with Leukemia and Cancer, to help cover treatments, a place to stay and much more.
