Fall Greetings from the Primary Class

I am thrilled to welcome the new students and their families to our classroom. We are so excited you are now a part of the Lifespan family! At the beginning of a new school year, I like to review our class routines and give some insight into our curriculum.

You will notice that our classroom shelves are divided by subject: sensorial, practical life, math, reading, writing, science, art, and culture. You might notice that one of our culture shelves receives a makeover every month or two. This is because we spend about two months studying each continent and our continent shelf changes to reflect the continent we are studying. You will see books, pictures, and new work highlighting the continent’s animals, landmarks, food, and more. In August, we started to learn about North America.

We also have monthly themes that are school-wide, so the Pre-Primary and Infant classrooms will be learning about these topics along with us. We will read books, create art, and engage in games and activities that surround these themes. The upcoming themes are The World Around Us in September, Dinosaurs in October, and Transportation in November. To see what we will learn each day at group time, you can view my lesson plans on the bulletin board outside of our classroom.
