Around the World With Picture Books
Instructor: Mrs. Carr
Join us as we discover what maps mean and journey through some of the countries in our big world through picture books. We will read stories, do activities, crafts, rhymes, games and songs. We will learn some interesting things about animals and plants in these countries and how some of the children live there. The following is a very tentative outline of the course and will be adjusted as needed for length of activities and attention spans.
We may be doing some sensory or hands on activities related to countries - For example, I might have dried pasta, wheat berries or cinnamon sticks in class. Please contact me if this is an issue or your child has specific needs related to this. Any possible food tasting TBD based on planning and the allergy list, and I will check with you ahead of time.
Week 1 – Me on the Map- an introduction to maps and where we live.
Week 2 – China and Taiwan (to fall soon after the Mid-Autumn Festival)
