This class meets four days a week with an option of an extended day program on Wednesday and Friday with the children bringing their lunches from home. Both classes will be combined on Tuesdays with an emphasis on centers, music, large motor and field trips. Special units of study that are covered include Pets, Community Helpers, Good Health and Good Foods, Under the Sea, Our Solar System, Dinosaurs, Plants and Insects. We all study the four seasons, the holidays, and the
seasons as they change through the year. Our main focus is to prepare the children for kindergarten cognitively, emotionally, and socially.
Each day we have two learning circles, one for welcome and planning our day and one for learning. Examples of areas we work on weekly are sequencing, left to right progression, rhyming, spatial concepts, opposites, matching, categorizing, math concepts and alphabet work. We have a directed art project everyday, literature, open play centers, directed movement, exercise and music.
We study one letter of the alphabet a week concentrating on printing letters correctly. We use a combination of Handwriting Without Tears and Zaner Bloser. Conferences are held each November and February. With enough interest we will stay for Lunch Bunch each day until 1:00.
