Students in preschool use the year to prepare themselves for kindergarten and "the big school". Our goal is to prepare students and assist them in gaining skills that are in important in many content areas such as literacy and math as well as areas such as social-emotional, cognitive, language, and physical.
"Look at this!" is a phrase that I constantly hear from students in my classroom.
The students receive instruction using the Creative Curriculum and Teaching Strategies GOLD. Activities are age appropriate and authentic. We have many tools and resources in the room to make sure that students have all the information that is needed to play.
Our big emphasis is on play. Play is how younger children learn. The teacher engages in play with students to teach them how to play and to learn from students as they play.
As the teacher, I am always looking to use more engaging activities with my students. The light table will enable students to be engaged in play while they make letters, numbers, names, and count manipulative items in the discovery area. The music CDs will be available for kids to play instruments with in the music and movement area.
"Where do you start your letters?" Well, everyone knows it's, "at the top!", except those students that are just learning to write.
The magnetic lined chart will enable me to show students how to write letters in large or small groups.
