Monthly Theme: Our Theme for August and September: Me and My Family: Celebrating Our Similarities and Differences
Beyond Centers and Circle Time is a play-based curriculum designed to provide educators with research-based strategies for creating loving, playful, and stimulating experiences for young children. Parents are encouraged to participate by sending in items related to our monthly themes (pictures, books, items beginning with the letter(s) of the month, etc.). Please see below in the section titled Parents.
The experiences planned for the months August and September will focus on families and how they are alike and different. In today's world many children experience different types of family configurations. In other words, not every child experiences the nuclear family consisting of a daddy, mother, with children and extended families with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. Therefore, a family may be defined as a circle of people who love and care for one another. This concept of family will be a continuing theme throughout the school year. However, our focus themes will change monthly. You will be able to read about these themes on this webpage each month. We are excited to be working with you and your child!
Areas of importance for this theme:
How Am I alike and how am I unique?
Different kinds of families
Where do people live?
Colors: Shades of brown
Shapes: Circle and Sphere
Letter Focus: Mm
If you have any family pictures you would like your child to share we would love to have them. If you have books about families or objects that begin with the letter Mm please send those in too for Sharing Circle. (All items sent in from home will be safely stored in a ziploc baggie with your child's name on it until the end of the month)
