Learning at UAS!

Week of October 13th

on October 10, 2019

Next week we will begin an exciting new unit of inquiry into our ‘Buildings Study’.

As we study buildings, we will learn concepts and skills in science, social studies, literacy, math, the arts and technology. We will also be using thinking skills to investigate, ask questions, solve problems, make predictions and test our ideas.

To get started, we are gathering all sorts of pictures of buildings. We could really use your help! We welcome pictures from any source, such as newspapers or magazines, postcards, printouts and your families photo collection. It would be wonderful if you could include pictures of buildings in other parts of the world, too.

What Can You Do at Home?

Study your home with your child. What materials were used to build it? How many rooms, windows and doors does it have?

Talk with your child about the buildings that you see together.

At the end of our study, we will have a special event to celebrate what we have learned.

Thank you for playing an important role in our learning!
