Our four program-wide expectations are Be Compassionate, Be Curious, Be A Community and Be Courageous. This week we will focus on how children can Be Curious.

We are Curious when we:

  • Explore new ideas
  • Ask “I Wonder” questions
  • Imagine the possibilities
  • Test our ideas
  • Value the challenge

In this week’s learning resource, you’ll find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!

Language / Literacy

Be Curious (Literacy):

Find your favorite book and read it with a friend or family member. As you finish reading the book, think of what could happen AFTER the end of the story! Be Curious as to what the characters would do after the story’s ending. For example, if you’re reading Hair Love, what would Zuri do with her Mom now that she’s home?


Math / Science

Ride a Ferry! (Math/Science) Watch this video of Teacher Lisa riding on a ferry boat! As you watch, try to count how many cars or other boats you see. Think about the water: is it cold? Warm? Did you see any clouds in the sky? These kinds of science questions can boost your brain and help you learn more about the world around you! Ask us for the password!

Math / Science

Find the missing number (Math)

On a piece of paper, write down numbers up to 10 or 15 (depending on your child’s skillset), but leave a few blank! See the picture below for an example:

Then hand the paper to your child and ask them, “What number is missing? Can you write down the missing numbers?” This will help them practice writing as well as help them remember what numbers look like and what order they go in!
