4 Year-old Pre-K All-Day Program

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. 

If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."

~ Albert Einstein

Our goal in our Pre-K classroom is to provide our students with an opportunity to learn while balancing both an organized enviornment and learning through play.  We base our program on the Creative Curriculum with a focus on the Everyday Math Program and Handwriting without Tears.  We feel that it is important to teach our students skills through hands on activity and movement.

Throughout the year the students are asked to do a few family projects which involve an activity that a parent and child complete as a team - most often some sort of art project.  We believe that this is a great time to talk to your child about school and see his/her progress in learning.  This is a wonderful way to get family involved in what is going on in the classroom.

As new themes arise each week we change our areas of the classroom to help keep our students' interest.  It is always exciting seeing the students' reactions to our new items in the book area, sensory table, dramatic play, block area and discovery table. We also dedicate a bulletin board to a "Star Student" every other week to display pictures, favorites, and news about a friend in our class.  The children always look forward to seeing who the next Star Student is.

 

Our Pre-K program is devoted to helping children grow and prepare for Kindergarten in a positive environment.  We do our best to accomodate our teaching to service the needs of each child in our class.  Ultimately, our goal is to guide our students day-by-day and facilitate their learning as they have only just begun their jouney in education.

January 2023 News!

4s (Ms. Liz)

Happy New Year!

Here’s to a happy, healthy New Year to all our families!

We will jump into weather changes in Winter. How we dress differently in winter. We hope to do some science experiments when it’s very cold. We will work on self-help skills of snapping, buttons, zippering, and buckles.

We will talk about snow animals. We will do some painting with steel wool and cotton balls to make snow owls. We will make polar bears with our hands.

We have enjoyed playing with our sleds outside, so winter sports fun will be next. We will make wax paper skates and have sled races with friends. We will have marshmallows and Hot Cocoa too.

Happy New Years 2023!

Happy New Year!

In December we focused on building self awareness, traditional differences and the wonders of winter through play and our activities which included Artic Animals, Social Circles, Winter Holidays and the Winter Season.

January will be full of new experiences in a variety of new topics.

These themes will be featured in our centers and will also incorporate  different learning domains.

I’ve opened new centers around the room to encourage various learning opportunities. These centers include; marble center, sensory bins, expo marker center and water bucket.

Our January themes will be: Instruments, Food, Transportation, Space  and Groundhog Day.

Our Christmas Concert is rescheduled for Tuesday, January 10th @ 6:30.

Conferences will also take place in January, more information coming soon, as well as sign up sheets.
