Whilst exploring our Big Idea of Systems, the children have discovered that the system of time helps us make sense of the world. Using calendars helps everyone remember when our birthday is, the bell rings at 3:30 to let us know when it his home time and the oven timer dings when our dinner is ready! Time also helps us make sense of our past, present and future.
Every morning we change our classroom calendar, discussing what day it was yesterday, what day it will be today, the date, the month, the season we are currently in and what the weather will be outside. The children have enjoyed using the calendar to mark the beginning of our day. A great idea for your home would be to have a weekly calendar up where your child can see, so they can play a part in preparing for events of the week.
