Kindergarten Social Studies

What we do:

The focus of the Kindergarten social studies curriculum is on the child’s transition from the preschool environment to the community of a K-4 school. Through group projects, discussions, classroom play, literature, and field trips, the children learn to interact positively with others while building the self-esteem, confidence, and self-control necessary for learning the skills and work habits to be successful learners and members of the school community.

How we do it:

  • Mindfulness practice
  • Exploration of the CDS school community
  • Journals and dramatic play
  • Group project work (planning, revising, building)
  • Interviews
  • Surveys
  • Writing and drawing
