1:00pm-1:30pm ARRIVAL AND OUTDOOR PLAY
1:30pm-2:00pm CIRCLE TIME
Music and movement, singing, finger plays and counting friends. We do the same songs for 2-3 weeks so children have the opportunity to learn them well. Circle time builds many skills including counting, an awareness of others in the classroom, learning names, cooperation, friendships and social interaction.
1:00pm-3:00pm CENTER TIME
Children have the opportunity to choose which center they would like to begin their play. They do this in a variety of ways, primarily through vocalizations paired with pictures. They are free to move from one center to the next throughout this time. There are a variety of centers available for the children. We have a dramatic play area, book area, art center, sensory table, block center, listening center, computer area, snack bar, puzzle center and Lego table. Games and manipulatives are available throughout the week.
