The Green Cluster Theme:  “Who Am I? Discovering Myself And My World.”

The curriculum focuses on self-discovery and how we are connected to the world around us. During the first part of the year the children begin learning about themselves, their senses, and their bodies. Later we expand this to include their families, their culture, and other cultures of the world community. We end the year by learning about the environment and how we influence and are influenced by it.

As children develop beginning reading skills, math awareness, and problem solving skills, they also develop as learners and friends. Green Cluster emphasizes group cooperation and individual responsibility towards the group. Green Cluster’s activity-based program has many options from which children can choose, encouraging them to become independent, life-long learners. Our emphasis is on early literacy, using a variety of approaches to guide and inspire children to develop a love of reading and learning.

On Monday,  Superintendent Beutner made the announcement that LAUSD schools will be closed until at least May 1st.  As we make the transition to Virtual Learning, we teachers will participate in professional developments aimed at making this experience as smooth as possible.  That said, we want to inform you of some calendar changes. This Friday, teachers will be in a full-day PD. Sadly, that means that our Friday Mystery Reader meeting will have to be postponed.  Next week, we will be on a minimum day schedule (8:05 to 12:50) Monday to Thursday.

Good morning Green Cluster!
We loved seeing all of your smiling faces Friday for our Mystery Reader.  We have missed our daily routine with you all and will be sending more information soon about our new daily routine.  We loved hearing about all the wonderful things you did during your first week of learning from home. Charlotte and Harrison did some bike riding, Cillian baked scones, Carter got a new dog named Otter, many of you hung out with family and pets, and there was lots of playing.  Most importantly, you were all smiling and healthy.

Distance Learning Day #2

Good Morning Green Cluster Families-

We hope that day one went well.  We loved seeing pictures of your home learning experiences.  Please continue to share them. Today during your learning time, work on activities that you didn’t get to yesterday.

Yesterday, we emailed and posted what a typical day in Green Cluster looks like. We received a few emails about how to organize learning time at home, so hopefully what we sent was helpful.  

A Typical Day In Green Cluster (Article)

Submitted by Green Teacher on Mar 16 (last updated Mar 16)

Dear Green Cluster Families, 

Here is what a typical day in Green Cluster might look like. We realize that the home environment is a different place, and there will be a range of commitments to the schedule. No pressure. Your children are the experts of what happens in Green Cluster. Perhaps you and your child can start by coming up with a schedule together.
