Our first unit of inquiry, Who We Are, is off to a great start!
Our central idea is: “Exploring and connecting to the environment and others promotes a sense of self identity and belonging.”
Our inquiry will focus on:
- how we develop a sense of identity and belonging
- how connecting with others develops a sense of belonging
- how we explore our environment in order to connect
The unit gives us a chance to get to know ourselves and each other. We hope that children come to understand that we are all alike and different in many ways and that’s okay. They will understand as well that they each belong in Kindergarten and are part of their school family.
This week the students also brought home a paper detailing our first home project All about me boxes
About Me Boxes should be brought back to school by Monday, September 21th. Students may bring them to school any time between now and then. We look forward to learning more about all the members of our kindergarten school family.
Have a wonderful week!
