Message from Teachers

Hello Parents!

     It was great to see some of you in person and we look forward to seeing you more in the future!  As we continue to prepare for re-opening on site, we want to remind you that safety is the first priority always.  That means that all the emergency forms and immunization information must be in place when we open for in person learning.

    Thank you for your patience and working with us to ensure we have all this important information.

Hope you enjoy your week!

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 will find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!

Activity 3

Be Curious.   What objects sink or float?

  • Go on a walk with your child. Collect leaves, rocks, sticks, acorns, pinecones, or other items that are hard, soft, big, or small.
  • Fill a tub or bowl with water
  • Let them place each object in the water to see which ones float or sink.
  • Write the word float on one paper and the word sink on another paper.
  • Then place the objects that float or sink next to the word. Talk about how heavy or light the objects felt.  Ask your child why they think that happened.

Read this book to hear about all the things that Carol does throughout her busy day! Then, talk with your child about Routines.  Ask: What comes next?  Create your own book about what routines you have at home and why it is important to know what comes next as you go through your day.
