A two day a week class for children who will be 2.6 years old by September 1st 2016. This is a class of ten students with a teacher and teacher aid in the room at all times
This class is a fun and exciting introduction to preschool for older toddlers.
I am a former NYC early childhood teacher. It is my privilege to be teaching the Bearly 3's for a second year. We also have Miss Amanda joining us to aide in your child's day with us.
This is the year that begins your child's wonderful journey. The process of gaining confidence, independence and social /academic skills starts with songs, art, play, books, centers and movement. Learning is fun...especially for Bearly 3's!
I welcome any dialogue/notes that can help us know your child and what we can do to nourish this development.
The schedule we generally follow is: - Good Morning - Table Work: either free exploration or a mini-lesson with directed task. - Meeting Area: Books; 'book talk', picture walks/talk, connecting self to text, sharing ideas, story details Songs and dancing Academic mini-lesson: science, math, social studies, vocabulary and content development - Gym/playground as weather dictates - Bathroom, wash-up and snack time - Center time - free exploration with modelling and reinforcement of positive social choices: sharing, waiting turn, playing together, etc. - Clean-up, pack up and dismissal
Looking forward to this wonderful year. Take a look at some of the activities we have already enjoyed! Sincerely,
