Welcome to the Early Childhood department.
We love to learn in PreK-4! Students are engaged throughout the school year in hands-on projects – some teacher-led, some independent, and lots of play. A few highlights we would like to share are:
Animal Habitats: In the fall students in PK4 worked on creating a forest habitat for woodland animals. Students collage boxes and use miniature trees, wood pieces, animals figurines, books, and more to explore life in the forest.
In the winter we create polar habitats – students can explore melting ice, how blubber keeps animals warm, and what it means to camouflage in the arctic.
Cross-Curricular Studies: In PK4 students explore areas of the classroom by making choices and taking turns. We use different areas and materials to enhance learning. Some of our favorite studies are: Pediatrician Office, Camping, Pizza Shop, Author Study, Farmer’s Market – pumpkins, plants, flowers.
