Themes


West Bee uses an emergent curriculum, which is curriculum planning based on the student’s and teacher's interest and passions. We set themes that we feel are developmentally appropriate and exciting for both children and teachers, however we may not follow through on a particular theme if the children are not interested in it. We may also cut themes short or extend themes based on current interests and passions. Please check out our themes board in the classroom that displays a web of ideas based on activities related to particular interests. These ideas may not all be used during a unit, however the activities that we do use with be documented and sent home at the end of every week for families to extend or discuss at home. You will also find the VELS (Vermont Early Learning Standards) and the Teaching Strategies GOLD objectivies that we are using during the unit listed as well.

We would love to have parents add to our web,
so please feel free to pick up a different color
writing tool and add away.
