Kindergarten will begin the New Year with some new beginnings, new work, and new learning and themes. The classroom will feel new and re-energized when the children return. Out first letter is “Nn” for the New Year, 2015.We will just have completed a new bundle of ten and moving toward our 80th day at school.
One of our themes will be centered around Martin Luther King and his dreams. This correlates with our trip and concert at The Fredrick Douglas School. This is a time to learn from each other and enjoying singing about peace and friendship.
Our winter theme will be about Penguins and Polar Bears. We will study their habitat and how the Arctic and Antarctic are different and alike. We will watch a pod cast from the Aquarium in California to observe real Penguins and other sea life. January is a very important month for children and their development. The parts come together and the joy of learning takes place.

A great beginning for the New Year 2015.
