Pre-K and Kindergarten showed off their knowledge and communication skills when the two classes came together in January to share how different each culture is when it comes to food, dress, music, traditions, and celebrations. Pre-K had just completed their How We Express Ourselves unit titled “Let’s Celebrate” and Kindergarten had finished their Where We Are in Place and Time unit titled “It’s A Small World After All”. Students, teachers, parents, and grandparents came in for an “All Around The World” fair and shared many facts about the countries where their families come from. The Kindergartners used their research skills to find out the meaning behind their flags, famous land-forms, currency, animals, and many other interesting facts! The Pre-K students shared some of their favorite family traditions and how their families celebrate holidays. Both classes showed attitudes and attributes of the Learner Profile throughout the units especially that they are enthusiastic, open-minded, knowledgeable, communicators, tolerant, and risk-takers for trying new food!
