Themes help preschoolers construct knowledge and build connections through real experiences. Instead of having a day of disjointed activities, themes organize new information around a unified context, which results in a growing web of knowledge.
Each theme creatively integrates colors, shapes, numbers and letters of the month.
Monthly themes invite children to explore new ideas with an interdisciplinary, multi-sensory approach. Experience Curriculum uses music, art, dramatic play, storytelling, games, books and experiments to ignite imagination and bring the theme to life in four weeks of wonder.
FEATURED THIS OCTOBER
This month, science comes to life as your child discovers the wonder of orchards. He will get to know the parts of a tree and investigate the fruit and seeds that grow from them. Next he will identify the animals that call an orchard home. He will sneak like a raccoon and polka with a porcupine. Get ready for an exciting month of peeling bananas, mashing avocados, painting with a pokey chestnut and cracking a bumpy walnut!
SCOPE AND SEQUENCE
THEMES ARE ORGANIZED UNDER
THREE MAIN CATEGORIES:
1. Me and My Community
Each year, we feature 3-4 themes from each category so children can have a complete understanding of how they relate and connect to their expanding world. These diverse experiences help them deepen their sense of self, make healthy life choices, build compassion for others, become stewards of their environment, and think critically when faced with the unknown.
