Our Preschool Day Activities
The Art Room
In the Art Room we learn to paint with brushes, marbles, cookie cutters and even our fingers! We learn proper use of glue, markers, scissors, stencils, stamps, and a variety of other materials. Some of what we do is experiential...such as using different kinds of paint, play dough and clay. We like to enjoy a media in terms of what it can do, what it smells like or what it feels like. We believe that the process of working with a material is more important than the product that is made. We love to do activities that develop the child’s creativity and imagination. Some activities involve listening and following directions as we use art materials. Often our “projects” enhance vocabulary and awareness as we introduce colors, numbers, shapes, and letters. During “free choice”, the children are involved in making choices, sharing, and cooperating. Our large “rice table” engages their senses and teaches basis concepts related to science and math such as measuring and pouring.
The Story Room
In the Story Room we learn to listen, sit still (for short periods of time, of course!), and learn new vocabulary and information connected to the topic of discussion. We learn to take turns talking, to cooperate and be considerate of the needs of others. Our block area has unit blocks and accessories to learn spatial concepts and pre-math skills. During free choice we have manipulative toys and activities to help develop the small muscles needed for future writing. Our cognitive and fine motor skills are exercised with puzzles, games, small toys and Legos. We also enjoy looking at books and having them read to us. With our Pre-K children, we introduce a new letter each week with an emphasis on its” phonetic sound and how to “say” the letter in Sign Language. We teach and incorporate American Sign Language into our lessons and music. Skill sheets are available to Pre-K children who are interested in doing worksheets.
The Play Room
Play stretches the attention span and imagination. It builds vocabulary and challenges the child to organize ideas, to think, and share. In the Play Room we have the use of a wide variety of playthings: building with blocks, play house or grocery store, cars and trucks, dress up clothes, dolls and doll houses, pretend telephones and computers, Fisher Price toys, matchbox cars, hammers and tools! We also enjoy group activities such as circle games, dancing and moving to music. We like to climb on the indoor climber, run an obstacle course, play with the parachute and jump on the trampolines! Weather permitting, we play outside on the playground, play with side walk chalk, shoot baskets and even ride bikes! Play time is when we build the language and social skills involved in making friends and settling disputes. At the same time we are building our large muscles and coordination.
Music is a very important part of our program. Music is the language of children.
It is used for lining up, transitions, clean up time, teaching concepts and for pure enjoyment. We always end our preschool day with a fifteen minute music session together in the Play Room.
