The Kindergarten teachers are busy preparing a new unit that will start in January. Our new Unit of Inquiry is based on the theme Where We Are in Place and Time. In this inquiry unit, the students will look at personal histories and how they help us learn about who we are and where we come from.
In order to do this, we need your help. With your child, please find at least 3 artifacts from your family history. Talk about their significance with your child and then have them bring the artifacts to school. These artifacts can include, but are not limited to: photographs, clothing, cultural relics, books, games, music, etc. These artifacts will stay in the class for a while so please make sure your name is on them.
We want to use these artifacts to help the children peek into the past and see how their life may be similar or different to their family’s life in the past.
We are sending this information to you before the holidays so you can collect the artifacts if you are visiting your home countries or home towns.
Please bring these artifacts into class after the break by Friday, January 12th.
