    Colonial Towns and Taking Care of the Earth

    Community Reads

    During the month of April, Kindergarten students are learning about the early history of our country. Students are exploring the setting of colonial towns and examining the daily lives of townspeople. Daily read alouds engage students in learning about the process of making cloth, dressmakers, tailors, hatters, and cobblers in a colonial town.

     

    Kindergarten students are also introduced to the importance of environmental awareness. Students learn the best way to conserve Earth’s natural resources is to practice the three R’s of conservation—reduce, reuse, and recycle. Through daily read alouds, students study conservation and become familiar with the earth’s natural resources. Students learn specifically about land, water, air pollution, and the water cycle.

     

    Skills lessons continue as Kindergarten students engage in chaining activities and repeated readings of text to support their continual growth and development as independent readers.
