Our yearlong science-based theme has preschoolers and kindergartners studying animals while doing activities that integrate skills in reading, writing, art, and math. Throughout the year, preschoolers and kindergartners learn and apply the concept of “Similarities and Differences.” From learning about ourselves to visiting pets to chicks hatching to seeing butterflies emerge, “Animals Abound All Around” science-based theme is explored in the Tongass School Preschool-Kindergarten classroom.
Our first Unit is “All About Me”. Students will be learning about themselves and what makes them unique, our senses, the main functions of our body, needs vs. wants, how to take care of ourselves, as well as community jobs. Every student will get one week this school year to be the Star Student where they will get to share all they want to about themselves.
