Welcome to our November curriculum theme, Happy Happenings
This month’s curriculum theme is designed to boost our little learners’ social-emotional skills and confidence as they use their five senses to discover the world around them. Throughout the month, children will discover assistive technology such as braille, cochlear implants, and hearing aids to foster their appreciation for diversity. Classroom STEM activities will inspire children to make predictions, gather data, and participate in sensory explorations. These cross-curricular activities integrate all aspects of STEM by allowing the children to freely explore the natural and physical world around them.

Bubbles the Elephant is so excited to explore the world around him using his five senses. This month, he will take our little learners on a journey as they explore what they see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and enjoy. With Bubbles by their side, they will learn how to express their emotions and identify the emotions of friends and teachers.
This month, our children will be exploring how they feel on the inside and how they express themselves on the outside. They will also be using their five senses to learn about the world around them. Talk with your child about how you use your five senses in your daily life. Invite them to discuss some of their favorite foods, hobbies, songs, and activities.
