As we move into this school year, our updated curriculum is now being implemented in all of our classrooms. Each day, we focus on teaching our children the foundations of Math and English. The skills and concepts that we teach are taken directly from the Maryland Common Core Standards and will serve as the building blocks for their later education. Our days are balanced with Science, Art, Sensory, and Student choice centers.
This month our theme is Fall and we are exploring all fall-related things. Such as; nature walks, pumpkin dissection, leaf rubbings, exploring acorns and other Fall-related items in the sensory table. The children will also discuss a lot about change. Autumn is a great time to discuss how and why our environment changes because the changes we see are quite apparent.
Let’s look at our curriculum by age groups:
Infants – Our students are busy working on their individual goals like rolling over, sitting up, and tummy time. They are listening to stories, songs, and how to interact with others.
Toddlers – They are busily engaged with identifying letters, numbers, sounds, and even words! They are exploring art and science concepts along with reading and math. They are even starting to trace letters and numbers.
Two Years – The two-year-old children are already hard at work with their literacy and math skills. They are tracing and printing letters and numbers, counting sets, making rhymes, and identifying many things in their environment. They also have daily art projects and weekly homework.
Preschool and Pre-K – Our oldest friends are working on reading small text, adding and subtracting, and identifying sight words. They also spend time working with sounds and learning how to blend sounds together to make words. They also work to improve their classroom by creating many wonderful things out of recycled materials. So, stop by and check them out!
As always, if you have any academic related questions, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Gwen or any member of our Administrative Team.
