This first part of the year explores inquiries into:
- Carrying out daily class routines with increasing independence
- Our responsibilities as a pro-active member of the class
- Building a caring learning community.
- Identities, ownership, family members, and culture.
Exploring these inquiries takes on different forms in our classrooms but all the PreK 2 children develop these skills and dispositions to be pro-active members of a caring community … as you can see from our photos below.
We help friends who need caring.
Communicators. Sharing our ideas in a safe environment.
Who is here today?
