Morning Activities include peer interactions, social opportunities with peers and teachers, independent and group play, art, and morning jobs. This is done through the use of sensory tables and materials, dramatic play, a chalk table, building materials, library, and more!
Circle Time gives us an opportunity to learn the importance of taking turns and respectful listening. During this time we teach greetings, counting, the calendar, the weather and sharing.
Group Learning focuses on literacy and math. We have a letter of the week, a question of the day, voting, counting, graphing, and equations. Our expanded literacy options include games such as Bingo, letter “scavenger” hunts, finding and discovering letters and words through forming letters in sand, play dough and other materials, name recognition/peer names, and sight words.
During Center Choice time the children can choose between Arts and Crafts (theme related activities), the Skill Center (shapes, letters and number activities), Math & Science (theme related independent activities), sensory tables or other tactile activities.
Of course we love our Outdoor Play times: Move your body! Have fun! Be a free Spirit! Be safe!
