Art Time 

Each session every child makes an art project using a variety of materials. These hands-on experiences improve fine motor development which lead into writing activities such as writing their own names.

Quiet Play 

Includes the housekeeping corner, "dress up", block building, puzzles, manipulative toys, water play and the corn table. 

Active Play 

Includes the indoor slide and climber, riding toys, rocking boat, dancing, crawling tunnel and marching parades. Outdoor playtime as the weather permits.

Clean Up Time

Children learn to help by working together putting away play activities and cleaning tables. This also encourages self-motivation which can be brought back home. 

Rug Time 

Opening prayer and devotions, counting, Pledge of Allegiance, calendar, weather, number of the month and letter of the week. Children receive turns to be classroom helpers and to present Show and Tell. They gather on the rug to learn about the unit of study, participate in finger plays and group activities.

Music Time

Sing songs accompanied by guitar, actions or rhythm instruments.

Snack Time

An opportunity for informal discussion between children and teachers while sharing juice and crackers, a birthday treat or the ABC letter of the week snack. The children help set the tables. 

Story Time

The children listen to a story from a book or the flannelgraph, or they may dramatize a story which relates to the learning experience for the day.
