Summer Resources: Preschool & Kindergarten
2020 Summer Activity/Learning Suggestions
Geckos, Iguanas, & Kindergartners
Learning happens all the time, not just in school. The intention of summer practice is to integrate school learning into home life. Below you’ll find suggestions that include playful activities that also reinforce pre-academic and academic skills, in a relaxed family environment. This year, given the COVID situation, we have added more online opportunities for learning over the summer.
Wishing you a restful and restorative summer!
Access your Google Classroom to complete projects that your child did not have a chance to finish during the school year or to repeat activities, as this is important to reinforce skills for our earliest learners.
Talking About Racism with Your Child
Our school’s mission and values call us to acknowledge injustice in the world, as a community rooted in empathy and kindness. We are sharing resources with you to help support these conversations, to help provide strategies for how to talk about race and racism with your children in our ongoing commitment to realize the ideal of Krishnamurti’s teachings.
