Open Door Weekly Theme – Incredible You
The weekly theme for September 4, 2017 is “Incredible You”. This unit is presented at the beginning of the year or whenever a new group of children is created. It provides opportunities for the children to become better acquainted with each other. The Camelot theme is a thread throughout the Quests. After reading to follow the directions for constructing and decorating paper hats, the children will analyze information that the hats tell about each other. They will create a acrostic poem using their names after finding out the meanings. A graph will be constructed using the heights of the children. They will locate where they were born on a map and collect data about the most common type of fingerprints in the center. The outcome of this unit is to have children acquire and integrate knowledge about themselves and others.
