Our unit for Term 1 is “All About Me.”

During this unit, we will discuss how people are similar and different and will learn about our bodies, our thoughts, and our feelings. We will explore the 5 senses and how we use them. Children will discover and learn about how bodies are the same and different and how people use their bodies to show feelings. They will discuss their favorite things and answer questions about their likes and dislikes. We will discuss family and how our families are important to us. Through purposeful play, stories and integrated learning centers children will begin to answer the question “who am I?
