Oral Language is the building block for Literacy. Our classroom is rich with children's literature, vocabulary, poems, and stories. We have so much fun bringing this to life for the children as they begin to make connections and get excited about learning. Phonemic awareness (learning to identify sounds. predicting, anticipating, and sequencing) is an important part of literacy development.
Patterns, shapes, sizes, graphs, reasoning, measurements, numbers, statistics, and probability are all math skills that will be learned in a fun, exciting manner. Developing a child's "number sense" is the foundation for higher thinking math skills.
Preschoolers are naturally curious about the world around them. Science activities and experiments for preschoolers give young minds the skills they need to seek answers and view the world scientifically.
Here is just a few things that children learn through art...expressing their feelings and emotions in a safe way, practicing and gaining fine muscle control as well as eye-hand motor coordination. The children will gain the awareness of colors, shapes, forms, lines, and textures. It also allows for the opportunity to make choices and solve problems.
Dramatic Play activities require students to work together and solve problems. More importantly, students get the experience to role-play and see how certain situations call for a certain response. It’s a great opportunity for students to learn how to express themselves in a productive and healthy way.
Children love to listen to and play music! We choose songs that allow our students to sing and move. This gives children the opportunity to develop a fun appreciation for music, and it also helps them learn about tones and pitch.
We carefully choose bible stories that the children can relate to. This activity also give us the opportunity to teach and reinforce the importance of treating people with respect, being honest, honoring their father and mother, and many other valuable social skills. We also teach the love of God to children in a way that children can understand and carry it with them throughout their lives.
There is ample space to enjoy the outdoors and allow the children to play and explore. Children will also have the opportunity to take part in activities such as gardening and going on nature walks.
