Welcome to semester 2! For the next few weeks we will have animal learning themes. Through these themes, we will begin to learn about what living things need to survive, characteristics of plants and animals, and habitats
For the next several weeks we will have animal themes in our class: Farm Animals, Sea Animals, Safari Animals, Pets, Bugs and even Dinosaurs! Through these themes we will begin to learn what living things need to survive, characteristics of animals and an introduction to habitats. We will focus on all the vocabulary that comes along with each of these themes. In semester 2, we will increase our focus on letter sounds and early handwriting skills. As the KGs are now getting older, we will also increase our focus on practical life skills, encouraging them to take responsibility in the classroom by completing assigned jobs each day and to dress themselves, put on their own shoes, and even pour their own cups of water at snack time. These kinds of purposeful activities, develop motor control and coordination, concentration, and a sense of responsibility.
