Developing Sense OF Order and Belonging October-December
A community is a system of individual parts working as a whole. Each part has a purpose and categorically speaking, "fits in" with its surroundings. By exploring community, our children will learn about the order in the world.
They will first learn about their role in a small community- the family! Then, bridging the gap between family and a neighborhood study of the town of Parker, children will explore the subject of homes. The unit will finish by looking at communities around the world in the context of winter holidays.
Developmental/academic topics to be covered include charting, writing and drawing, making 3 dimensional constructions, participating in dramatizations, storytelling and retelling, matching, categorizing, reading environmental print, map exposure, and multicultural awareness. These learning objectives will be delivered and assessed differently for each student depending on their needs.
