As we begin 2020, we are taking a look at our second guiding question for the school year: How do I experience the world around me? After many discussions with the children about our world, the state of New Jersey, our towns, and our neighboring towns, we are excited to think and talk about each of our unique daily experiences. Kindergarten students shared their thoughts on what is special about their homes and the towns in which they live. As a follow-up to these discussions, they wrote about the activities they enjoy doing in their neighborhoods. Their work will be on display in the hallways so that they can share all of their experiences with everyone. In addition, our field trips support learning about the world around us. Next week, we will travel to the ShopRite in Clifton to view first-hand what everyday life is like in the supermarket in one of our neighboring towns. We are having a great time exploring the world around us, and we hope to discover a lot about ourselves in the process!
