by September 1 of current
This is an important time, during which the children meet as a
group to discuss the calendar, weather, and other exciting
happenings of the day. Appropriate classroom behaviors and
listening skills are introduced at this time. Circle time also
consists of songs, finger plays, stories, and games. The project
for the day is explained at this point, and a brief period of
show and tell will occur.
Music and Movement
The children will have an opportunity to explore music and rhythm
through songs, finger plays, musical games, records, tapes, and
parachute play. Large muscle movement such as hopping, jumping,
skipping, stretching, and running in place, etc. may also occur
at this time.
The class begins with creative free play. The children have an
opportunity to choose from a variety of individualized to small
group activities including play dough, puzzles, books, table
games, building blocks, free art, dress-up, transportation play,
kitchen play, and other miscellaneous play equipment.
Arts and Crafts
The children will have an opportunity to create projects that
reflect a theme and develop fine motor skills such as cutting,
gluing, pasting, tearing, painting, coloring, and cooking. We
believe that it is the process of "doing" that is important, NOT
the final product. Ask your child to tell you about the finished
piece of work. Not all of these projects can or will be brought
home. Some may be used as samples and/or decorations at school.
In our classroom we have a wide variety of books for the children
to sit and read. Sometimes they may be too young to actually read
the words, however, pictures allow the imagination to explore. It
is amazing to hear some of the stories they can come up with just
from simple images. Children learn to read to themselves, dolls,
or even other classmates.
This is a favorite part of the children's day. Each child/parent
is asked to provide snack time goodies, juice or milk, cups, and
napkins for 10 to 15 children at least one time during the year.
These snack times will be assigned by the instructor and will
coincide with your child's show and tell day. A recommended snack
may be a nutritional, simple to eat snack and light colored/clear
juice or milk (one gallon of milk or one 2 liter bottle of clear
or light juice is usually enough).
NOTE: Due to peanut
products causing severe allergic reactions in come children, we
have become a "Peanut Free
Environment". We also require that all snacks be packaged,
not home baked. Please note that we will
not serve home baked goods, items containing peanuts, or red
colored juices. This includes special occasions and
holidays. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.
Sand and Water Tables
In our everyday learning environment we have found that children
learn a variety of socialization skills while participating at
the water table. It's common for two and three year olds to
involve them selves only in parallel play, which is the beginning
of making friends and group play. Often times the children will
be playing the same game, but there isn't any interaction
involved. Within time, the children start communicating with each
other. Eventually all children are sharing ideas, turns and
equipment. Within this activity children are introduced to things
such as water temperature, measuring, pouring, volume and weight.
They experience textures, floating, sinking and other necessary
information pertaining to water and sand.
Within our classroom we have a variety of easels for our
participants. Throughout the week we will put out different tools
to be used. The materials we have available include things such
as crayons, markers, watercolors, chalk and a variety of paint.
This area not only involves art experience, it also allows
children to use their imagination and creativity.
Pretending provides a way for young children to learn more about
the adult world. It helps them increase social and language
skills by interacting with other children. Dramatic play gives
children the avenue to act out real life situations or to depart
into the world of fantasy. Our LOFT provides children a great
chance to interact and demonstrate strong social skills.
Our playground equipment is a great source for developing gross
motor skills. The children start to develop more language skills
by socializing around the playground. The climbing, hopping, and
swinging provide another great avenue to opening children's
imaginations. Soon to the children, the mulch isn't just pieces
of wood it is now an ocean and the equipment becomes a boat!
