This full year pre-k and kindergarten curriculum course with a certified and experienced early childhood education teacher will begin with a meet/greet of all students. All students are important to me and I strive daily to create a warm, caring and safe learning environment for them to flourish. The morning message will then be read/followed to further immerse students into the world of literacy and serve as the roadmap for the day. Interactive, fun and engaging times will then consist of learning the following: alphabet knowledge, phonics, phonological awareness, sight words, cvc words, word families, sentence structure, reading, early math skills (number sense, shapes, patterns, etc.), writing/drawing (fine motor skill strengthening), colors, and a plethora of more. ALL Pre-K standards and beyond are intentionally woven into the curriculum to help prepare students to be academically successful in kindergarten. The infusion of singing/movement, finger play, social interaction, and games will be the surprise. Shhhh!!! An educational weekly theme will be featured to accent every week.
