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!

Movement / Play

Be Curious (Movement & Play):

Did you know there are 5 ways to learn about things?? They’re called the 5 senses! The 5 senses are Seeing, Smelling, Hearing, Touching and Tasting!

The next time you are playing outside, or at the store, you can use some of these senses to explore your curiosity. For example, if you are at the store, you can SEE all the different foods they have! Can you name the colors you SEE?

If you’re at home, you can TASTE the food you eat with your family! Does the food taste sweet, salty or something else?

Take some time with your family to Be Curious about the different things you can smell and hear and touch, too! You can talk about them, draw pictures, or even make up a song to sing about them!
