The afternoon teacher and I went out for lunch at the end of the school year and planned out our themes for the 2012-2013 school year. I thought I would share them with you, so here goes:
August: Family and About Me
September: Community Helpers
November: Fairy Tales
December: Winter (also Jan Brett author study)
February: At Night
March: Animals (Zoo for two weeks; Ocean for two)
(These dates are not exact, but I thought it would be simpler to present our themes month by month.) For science, we will do one theme per quarter, and they are as follows: 1st quarter — Five Senses and the Body; 2nd quarter — Water; 3rd quarter — Building Structures; 4th quarter — Plants. For math, we will use the Growing With Mathematics curriculum, and plug it in week by week.
