Themes & Activities


Explore Unit: Transformation

Essential Question: How do things Change?

Focus Questions:

  • What changes around me?

• How can objects change?

• What kinds of change happen in nature?

• How will I continue to change and grow?


Children conclude the year by investigating how things change over time. This unit, like all Pre-K for All units, provides opportunities for children to observe objects and phenomena in their environment with increasing complexity. This final pre-K unit is an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills children learned in previous units, and to help children prepare for upcoming transitions.


Building Blocks: (Math)

  • Addition: Children will continue to learn how to “add on to” one number to make another number just as you would in a simple arithmetic problem.
  • Ordinal Numbers: Children will be provided with opportunities to use and understand numbers that do not emphasize how many, but instead, in what position, including the words, first, second, third, and up to tenth.
  • Shape Composing: Children will continue to create different shapes by putting together smaller shapes.

Family Engagement

Together with your child do a simple cooking activity at home and discuss how foods change when they make snacks or meals (e.g. adding milk to cereal, cooking carrots, or making pasta or rice). You can visit a park on your way home or look at trees in your neighborhood. What has changed about the trees since winter? If possible, draw a picture of what the tree looked like in the winter and what it looks like now that it is spring and compare the two.



TIP FOR PARENTS


Ways to prepare your Child for KINDERGARTEN

  • Read books everyday
  • Develop fine motor skills: holding a pencil, coloring and cutting with scissors
  • Talk about Social Skills: sharing, taking turns, positive words, talk about handling anger.
  • Help your child take responsibility: clean up messes, dress themselves, get their own snacks

** visit or walk past the school your child will be attending in the fall and discuss what looks different and the same about their current program and their new school.

  • Welcome to The Pre-K Airport and Flight 205. 
During the beginning of our Transportation Unit we discussed the different types of transportation and how we need them to get from one place to another. One of the children said that they've never been on an airplane so collectively we decided to create an airport in our dramatic play center.

  • As part of our "All About Me" unit, where the children explored and learned about what makes them important and unique, the children and their families celebrated and shared a part of their family composition and customs. Families shared their traditional foods and children shared their cultural body cutouts. This was a wonderful way for all to recognize the differences and similarities between ourselves and the people around us. We thank all our families who came out to celebrate!
