About Orange Class:

This class is for children that turn four by December 31st. This class is intended for students that are ready for more structure and whole group activities at the beginning of the school year. We start the day with whole group discussion on weather and calendar. We move into free choice time where the children learn through exploration and play as they interact with each other. We then move into a second whole group time where we sing songs and read a story. This is followed by snack. The students learn how to eat family style, passing the food around the table to share, and learn how to serve themselves. The class then heads outside for gross motor activities. We come in for a short music time before heading home. As the year progresses, we will have a letter each week the students identify and practice writing. They will also have show and tell and more whole group activities related to specific learning targets. Purple class is also a time of great social and emotional growth as the children learn to share toys, ask their peers questions, and use words to stand up for themselves. Class Time Monday 9:30 - 11:30 am, Tuesday & Thursday from 12:30 - 2:30 pm.
