Line Time:

The month started off by going back in time and studying the Ancient Romans.  The Ancient Romans had similar Gods as the Ancient Greeks.  The king of all Gods in Rome was Jupiter and his wife Juno who was the Goddess of Marriage and childbirth.  Pluto was the God of the Underworld, Neptune was the God of the Seas, and finally we came across the God of War, Mars.  Did you notice that a lot of these Gods had planets named after them?

 

Cultural Subjects:

Your children can count to ten in 25 different languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh,  Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo Croation, and Cebuano).

Peek Into The Classroom:

The Kindergarten Students received a shelf exclusively for their use. This picture depicts kindergarten students organizing their shelf how they wanted it organized without adult intervention.

This student is using the Movable Alphabet to compose her Kindergarten BFF’s names. The purpose of this material is to help the child with the analysis and exploration of the language which is known to him/her and to reproduce words with graphic symbols. Also, it prepares the students for writing and reading.
