Our Pre-K3 Program
At this stage, we will work on developing curiosity with STEM and sensory skills. We will use show and tell and other activities to enhance oral communication skills. Students will also engage in small group and center time activities to motivate creative and critical-thinking; build a love of learning; and develop social skills. In Pre-K3, we encourage learning through play, discovery, and exploration. Every month we will send home a newsletter telling you our themes of the month and letting you know what we will be learning about. I will also communicate student learning through our class website. This first month is going to be an exciting one as I help the children settle into their new surroundings and routines. We will also focus on getting to know each other and making new friends.
QUARTER 2 LEARNING:
During our second quarter in PreK3, we will be learning all about jobs in my community !
Here are some of the key questions we will be focusing on:
*What are some of the jobs where people help others?
*What do doctors and teachers do to help people? Who do they help and what tools do they use to do their jobs?
*What do police officers and firefighters do to help people? Who do they help and what tools do they use to do their jobs?
*What do construction workers and chefs do to help people?
Who do they help and what do they use to do their jobs?
