Aug.31- Sept.4: LAND TRANSPORTATION
This week the children will have fun learning the many vehicles used to get around on land. Cars, buses, bikes, scooters, trains, and trolleys to name a few! Feel free to let your child bring his/her favorite vehicle for show and tell on Friday.
Sept. 7- Sept.11: AIR AND WATER TRANSPORTATION
KIDS COUNT WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, SEPT. 7TH FOR LABOR DAY!
From land transportation we move on to air and water. Boats of many types as well as airplanes and hot air balloons will be explored this week. Again, the children can bring an air or water vehicle to share on Friday. Books are always welcome!
Sept.14- Sept.18: SEASON OF FALL
Is it really fall? Hopefully, the long hot summer is behind us. Hello to cooler weather! Our unit this week is based on the changes that the fall season brings as the leaves change color due to cooler temperatures. Football season is a favorite fall activity for families. Things may look a lot different this year but we will continue to show our favorite team support through “Spirit Friday’s!”
Sept. 21-Sept.25: COMMUNITY HELPERS
Many different people make up the community we live in. Firemen, policemen, construction workers, and sanitation workers to name a few. We will look at the jobs they do to help make our community a safe place to live and work.
Parents send a picture of yourself at work for our classroom collage. Each child will share your job with the class.
Sept.28-Oct. 2: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This week we move on to the BIG equipment used in our community. Using pictures and books the teachers will show the children how buildings are built and torn down. They will be busy in the block center building, measuring, and creating! We welcome all bull dozers, excavators, dump trucks, and backhoes…please LABEL with your child’s name.
