April 19th to 23rd

Good afternoon EY1 Friends!!

Congratulations on completing our first week of remote learning!! Although we were all disappointed at the beginning of the week, we all managed to find ways to make the best of the situation and HAVE FUN!!

🌎 EARTH DAY CELEBRATIONS

We had a very successful week of activities relating to Earth Day. We have made it a week-long celebration. You have shared many wonderful and responsible actions you will make to help take care of the Earth!! The Earth Day collages were fabulous!!

⭕ SOME CHANGES TO WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Class A and Class B will be combined for lessons so that the children can all see each other more often throughout the week.

The new schedule allows for us to offer “EY1 Playtime” on Mondays through Thursdays. This will be OPTIONAL DROP-IN sessions where the children can come, see and chat with friends and “play”. A teacher will be there to supervise but not teach as we want this to be the children’s time. Each day will be a different theme — play dough, storytime, building things, scavenger hunt, etc.

⭕ NEW UNIT OF INQUIRY

We will begin our new unit called “Investigations.” The goal of this unit is to have students learn about investigations and experience doing some themselves so they come away with the idea that “Investigations can lead to discovery and the development of new understanding,” the central idea for this unit.

THANK YOU all again for your adaptability to our current situation as well as your understanding for some of the technical glitches this week!! Together, we can provide the best learning opportunities to our students, given the circumstances.

Have a restful weekend!!

All the best,
EY1 Team
