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
