April 2018 Theme & Calendar

Our April Theme:
India!

    Let’s discover the wonders of India this month!  From the famous Taj Mahal, with its beautiful architecture, to the haunting music of the sitar, with its 18, 19, 20 or 21 strings, we have a lot to experience.  This country and culture is varied, with something for each of our curriculum areas:

     Although English is widely spoken, Hindi is the official language.  But there are 22 major languages in India, written in 13 different scripts!  From these, India passes to future generations its ancient folktales, epic legends, and didactic stories designed to instruct children.

     The fabulous landscape supports the Bengal tiger, Asian elephant, Asiatic lion, and the great Indian Rhino; and this is where the Indian banyan tree, the Lotus, and sweet-smelling Jasmine flowers grow.  The people there eat delicious Roti for dinner, with sweet Jalebi for dessert… and their recipes use spice combinations perfected over thousands of years!

    Indian art consists of a wide variety of forms, all with a strong sense of design.  Over the millennia, it has been influenced by many cultures and shared by many religions all within India.  We are sure to be inspired to experiment with some of these forms.

     Children and adults there play football, hockey, cricket, and kabaddi; and their classical dances are entrancing to watch.  Their musical system is quite different from ours: it divides the octave into 22 segments called shrutis, not all equal but each roughly equal to a quarter of a whole tone of Western music!

     Amazing India!

Snow Make-Up Days

Our Snow Make-Up Days

       Dear Kinder Works Parents,

     Pursuant to our Policies, we have 2 snow days to make up this year.  Therefore, Kinder Works will be open for all classes on Monday, April 2nd (previously Spring Holiday) and on Friday, April 27th (previously Parent-Teacher Conferences).  Parent-Teacher Conferences will be rescheduled, and details will follow soon.

     One of our snow make-up days should land on a Tuesday or Thursday, since that schedule lost 2 days.  However, we do not have a Tuesday or Thursday remaining in this school year to spare.  Therefore, we are giving those who have a Tuesday/Thursday schedule a free day during our Summer Camp season in the form of a voucher, which can be used whenever is convenient.  If you have this schedule, watch your email for a voucher, and for more information about our camp.

     As always, if you have any questions or concerns, we are here to serve you.  Just pop in and talk with us, or email us at kinderworksd@kinderworks.net, or call 215-348-8082.

 

Spring Egg Hunts 2018

Spring Egg Hunts
Tuesday & Wednesday, March 27th & 28th

       Kinder Works welcomes Spring with our annual Egg Hunts!  During your child’s Gym & Music period, the Kinder Works Rabbit will hide her eggs all over our playground.  Who knows… maybe there will be some dinosaur eggs!  We will catch some pictures of the excitement as the boys and girls try to find all of the secret hiding places and fill their bags with special treats.

 

March Show & Tell

SEL (“EQ”) Show & Tell Thursday & Friday, March 22nd & 23rd
“My Family Cares for One Another”

       As we are looking into pre-history this month, we can see that survival often depends on families taking care of their babies, as well as older and weaker members.  Ice Age movies are funny, but they demonstrate, “that’s what you do in a herd: you look out for each other”.  Long before that, we can see that even dinosaur eggs had to be protected by the parents!

     Who are the members of your family, and how do they take care of one another?  For Show and Tell this month, talk with your little one about your family unit, and how various members show that they care.  Your little one can draw a picture, bring in a photo, or something that shows how his or her family cares for one another.
