Welcome to our classroom blog!
Welcome to the 2007-2008 school year at Summers-Knoll! I am most excited to be your child's teacher and am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning.
Our curriculum will again be based around monthly integrated themes. We try very hard to give the children a well-rounded educational experience, and our themes reflect a good mix of language arts, social studies, and science.
We will begin our year by studying Art and Artists, with some emphasis on the art of early man up through the Renaissance, although more modern art will be studied as well. Children will get many chances to create art in the styles of some of the great masters. Hopefully, the students will begin to emcompass a greater sense of history and art appreciation.
Other themes this year:
October - Native Americans
November - Physical Science/Force and Motion
December - Author Studies
January - Ancient Egypt
February - Simple Machines/Invention Convention
March - Asia
April - Genre Studies
May - Life Science/Soil
