WELCOME to a new year of Pre-Kindergarten. WE have 2 classes of Pre-k. One redbirds and bluebirds. The teachers are Ms. Gina, Ms. Taylor, and Ms. G. WE rotate our rooms according to the subject. We will have a MATH, READING/literacy, CRAFT, AND circle time center each day. Your children will have all of us as their teachers. Their main class will be one of the colored rooms above. After a few months of school we will then developmentally place your child in the center group that most fits their learning needs or strengths. This is what we do daily:
Our center bases their curriculum on the 5 areas of development and so does our focus on each child. The physical, creative, emotional, cognitive, and social child.
Notes: Workbook will always stay here until Parent review.
Share and tell is always TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY each week.
PARTY DAYS will also land on a Tuesday and Wednesday in the morning only
