The first grade are finishing up their unit on Communities (we have a Career Day this Friday 4/11) Ask your children about goods and services, wants and needs... They are actually creating different communities in their classrooms: We have a supermarket, library and a class devoted to safety! Next week; however, we are starting our Baby Animals unit and starting our Bronx Zoo Connection Part 2! Once again the children will be partnering with the zoo and going on trips to deeply understand baby instincts, traits, changes, needs, etc.
In Kindergarten - We are still exploring breads around the world.. Children are understanding how every culture has a connection to bread. From here we will be planting and gardening. We will be heading to the Botanical Gardens and going to local farms to understand how plants grow, how farms work and how people depend on farming to get produce, etc.
