“Where Did My Family Come From?”
As we learn about faraway places in exotic climes, it’s instructive to realize that our own family has come a long way to be here in PA. This month, we will be looking at maps, as well as the globe, to see where India is located. At the same time, we can find out where our relatives came from, and appreciate that in this “digital age,” when it appears that everyone is right here in the palm of your hand, we are really from all over our world!
Your teachers will send home one suitcase. Please talk with your little one about which relative(s) came from where… and write your family name on the suitcase along with the country/city of origin. Look for our map display!

Our April Theme:
Let’s discover the wonders of India this month! From the famous Taj Mahal, with its beautiful architecture, to the haunting music of the sitar, with its 18, 19, 20 or 21 strings, we have a lot to experience. This country and culture is varied, with something for each of our curriculum areas:
Although English is widely spoken, Hindi is the official language. But there are 22 major languages in India, written in 13 different scripts! From these, India passes to future generations its ancient folktales, epic legends, and didactic stories designed to instruct children.
The fabulous landscape supports the Bengal tiger, Asian elephant, Asiatic lion, and the great Indian Rhino; and this is where the Indian banyan tree, the Lotus, and sweet-smelling Jasmine flowers grow. The people there eat delicious Roti for dinner, with sweet Jalebi for dessert… and their recipes use spice combinations perfected over thousands of years!
Indian art consists of a wide variety of forms, all with a strong sense of design. Over the millennia, it has been influenced by many cultures and shared by many religions all within India. We are sure to be inspired to experiment with some of these forms.
Children and adults there play football, hockey, cricket, and kabaddi; and their classical dances are entrancing to watch. Their musical system is quite different from ours: it divides the octave into 22 segments called shrutis, not all equal but each roughly equal to a quarter of a whole tone of Western music!
