Dropped by the prek-k last week and found them deep in a pattern block exercise (well it actually felt like a game) with the help of their teachers Amy and Judy plus the PDS math guy Stephen Currie.
And then – when that was done and dusted – it was time to find a book.
This one is Families Around the World, One Kid at a Time. It’s full of engaging photos of children and their families from all over the world with some straightforward information about the family and the country. Well worth a look as a great introduction to the understanding of the complex and diverse world in which we live.
Each spread features a family portrait, a map of the country, and a day in the life told by a child. It’s a fascinating book and certainly engrossed these young readers.
And then it was time to learn about the plants growing by the window and how the experiments are going. And admire the baskets of seashells, stones and polished glass.
