Through hands on experiences children observe, record,compare, classify and predict about the world around them. Our focus in kindergarten includes seasonal changes at the Vernal Pool, Land's Sake Farm and our Journey North Tulip Garden. Children also participate in a design and engineering unit titled Balls & Ramps.
Social Studies: Children participate in lessons in Social Competency including safety, sharing ideas and materials, taking turns, taking responsibility for jobs/actions, following routines independently, respect individual differences, working cooperatively with a partner and resolving conflict with negotiation. Children also participate in a year long unit titled Me in My World. In this unit, children will discover, explore, experience and interact with the world around them. They will develop a sense of their individual selves and their place in the world through interactions and meaningful experiences with family, friends, school, and the larger community. Students will use mapping as a tool to define themselves, their family, their place within the classroom and within the world. Simultaneously, they will become active citizens within and beyond the classroom.
