‘Root For Earth’

Sensory Table with ToddlersEarth Day is Monday April 22, 2013. In order to help teach our children how important it is to take care of our planet the Goddard School will be participating in fun educational activities on Monday and calling it “Root For Earth”. The children will be reading books about our Earth and learning songs about how we can take care of it. We will also do the following activities together as a school:

1. Plant A Seed – your child will learn about plants and trees and how they are good for our environment while they help plant flowers in their classrooms!

2. Decorate a Banner – each classroom will decorate their own banner for “Root For Earth” by drawing, coloring and stamping with friends!

3. Create a Recyclable Door – the children will work together to glue recyclables that were brought in to their classroom recycle bin on their class door!

Please feel free to stop in and “Root For Earth” with the Goddard School in Chalfont!

Stepping Up For the Environment

Stepping Up For the

 Gardening - Kids & Teacher

There are a lot of ways you can teach your child to help our environment.  They can help recycle, plant trees at your home, understand the importance of not to litter or simply make sure lights and/or water are turned off when not being used.  In order to get the message across to our preschoolers, on March 30, 2012 the Goddard School in Chalfont will be hosting
a Stepping Up For the Environment event.  The school will turn off all the lights at 10:00 a.m. and have the children participate in fun, earth friendly activities such as reading books about our environment, learning an earth song, decorating a light switch,
creating an earth cookie, and making an earth friendly poster with their classmates.

Raising our children to be aware of the environment and how to take care of it will help them live a clean and environment conscious life from now to years to come.
