Hello from classroom Four.
It was so nice to see the children greeting one another after winter break. The hugs and high-fives were wonderful to witness! We also saw how much they missed doing their work. The first week back was very quiet, as all the children were concentrating on their work.
For physical geography, we will give the child the basic forms of landmass. We will use models, pictures, and books to bring this information to the child. We will also talk about climate zones and how they effect the people who live in them. For political geography, we will look at the division of the world that have been made by humans.
Geography as a whole is open ended. We must follow each child's interest and supply them with information they are seeking. Geography work is done to teach the child about the society in which they live and about others around the world. This will help the child to realize that they are not only a member of their society, but a member of the world.
We will be having our annual pancake pajama breakfast next Friday the 14th. The children are already getting excited for the event!
