Dear Pre-K Parents,
We have begun our new unit of inquiry. The following information will allow you to support your child’s learning and understanding from home.
We will be inquiring into the following:
Transdisciplinary Theme: How we organize ourselves
An inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems
Central Idea: Signs and symbols are human-made systems that help people communicate.
Lines of Inquiry that will define the scope of our inquiry into the central idea:
- Signs and symbols
- How signs and symbols help people to communicate
- Systems of communication
Ways you can help:
- Be on the lookout for signs and symbols with your child around your home or while you are out and about. They are all around us and will be exciting for your child to begin noticing with a keen eye! Ask your child what the sign is trying to communicate and how they know. Take pictures or draw them and encourage your child to share his/her findings in class.
Yours in learning,
The Pre-K Team
Thank you to Ryan Brown and Cary Hart for capturing the footage and putting together such a great video of our celebration!
The costumes have been created, the shadow puppets made, the clay has been animated! It is time to put on our show!!
We would like to invite you to our Celebration of Learning, here in our Pre-K classrooms, on Friday, March 1st, at 9:00 am.
Since December, we have been learning to make and tell stories. The children have been inspired to create their own stories and want to share them with their loved ones – YOU!
At the beginning of our unit, children were split into four learning groups. They rotated through the classrooms learning the various skills needed to create their own stories.
Then, they had free reign over all the classrooms to play and experiment, returning to the spaces where they could put their new storytelling skills into practice.
Finally, after observing and listening to the children during play, the educators split them up into storytelling groups (according to their interests) and supported them to make their final products: stories that they can share and tell to you!
We hope you all can make it! Please feel free to bring your child’s siblings along, and any other family members that would take pride in your child’s learning. The videos that have been made will be put up on our website after the Celebration of Learning so that friends and family from afar will be able to see the work.
We hope to see you on Friday, March 1st!
Can you spot the new classmates?
