Oceans, Gardens, Ideas - October 6, 2017Top of Page

Greetings and welcome to the Woodside Preschool Pre-K Classroom home on the web! Here I'll do my best to keep you up to speed on the happenings in our classroom. We are off to a tremendous start and we've only just begun...
 
We invite children to explore, play, and create and encourage them to express themselves and collaborate. We take their ideas and questions seriously and use them to guide our curriculum and studies. As Joaquin was building in the pictures below, he declared proudly, "We are making ideas!" 
          
This group displayed an interest in fish and the ocean early on so we focused on that for a bit. At group-times, we invite them to share their knowledge and questions. In the next picture, the children are using their bodies to measure how big a whale is.
      
Teacher Kem brought in live creatures to observe.
Another highlight of this week was going over to the elementary school garden. Lena's mom won the visit at last year's school auction and was kind enough to share it with our class. We studied calendulas and various other seeds, artichokes, broomcorn, dog plants, and more. We also ate raisins and sunflowers. We love visiting all the resources on campus with Pre-K. More good times to come...
