In Term 2, the Preps have been learning about families. Our integrated topic (Me and My Family) assists with the transition from home and kinder to school through making links between these areas and by getting to know students and parents. The Preps will develop their early skills by talking to groups of children, talking, writing and drawing about personal experiences and using simple thinking tools, such as mind maps and T-charts.
This week, the Preps will be making class world maps, which will require them to know where their families originated from. We ask that parents and caregivers discuss this with the students, as it will assist the students with connecting to this topic and will provide a rich opportunity to develop their vocabulary in this area.
We look forward to sharing our family world maps with you,
