Our Pre-K class is designed to be a Kindergarten Readiness program. The students in this class will learn all the necessary skills in language arts and math to be successful when entering kindergarten. Pre-K focuses on a letter of the week each week. Each day the children will do writing practice beginning with letters and moving into words. Math skills are also an important part of Pre-K. Math skills include number sequencing, telling time, patterns, and addition.
Following a schedule is important in this room to help with school preparation. Each day will include circle time, art, centers, and rest time in addition to language arts and math. In our Pre-K, the children begin to become more independent with their life skills, and this independence is encouraged throughout the year as they discover their capabilities.
Show and Tell takes place in our Pre-K room! Each Friday the students can bring in a secret item that begins with our letter of the week. The students present their item to enforce some practice with early public speaking. We have lots of supplement curriculum materials such as Scholastics: Clifford's My Big World to explore two topics per month.
