Week June 1-4 Learning Resource
Message from your teachers!
Welcome to this week’s newsletter! We hope you are all doing well and staying safe. It seems the weather is cool one day and warm the next- hopefully the warm sunshine will stay through the summer!
Below you’ll find some helpful links and resources. If you have any questions at all, please contact your teacher.
Our four program-wide expectations are Be Courageous, Be Curious, Be Compassionate, Be A Community. 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 to help your child learn about Being Curious! Let us know how it went!

Activities from Teacher Suzanne
Art activity: Leaf Rubbing! (Art)
- Leaves from outside
- (OPTIONAL) Scissors
- Run outside and grab some leaves! Bring them inside to a space where you can color (we recommend working on a table or other flat, hard surface)
- Put the leaves on the table or surface, and place a piece of paper on top.
- Carefully rub the crayon over where the leaf is and look at all the lines and shapes that leaves have! After you color, you could even cut out the leaves from the paper and play with them! Below are some picture examples.
