Our 4-year-old classes focus on skills for school readiness, providing many hands-on learning activities, letter and phonemic awareness, calendar time, Bible time, working together in groups, large motor skills, fine motor skills, music and playing games.
Weekly, children are taught Bible Stories, songs. They also spend time talking about and working together on relationships and good character qualities as individuals and as a group.
Each day / week is centered on a theme. From there we plan a craft/ art project, read a book, plan activities and games. Some themes that we will cover during the year are: friendships, nursery rhymes, creation, nature, animals, owls, farms, acorns, seasons, reptiles, Mexico, insects, Noah’s ark, alphabet letters, bugs and more!
Every day children participate in cutting, gluing, painting, coloring, and creating. Some of the work projects focus on teacher instructed, following directions activities.
40 play centers are rotated throughout the year.
Pre-reading and reading activities will be presented such as letter recognition and a portion of Jolly Phonics, rhyming activities, language development skills, reading a large variety of books and acting out stories.
