Preschool Activities

 

Social Living

Your children will experience many new emotions in preschool. We will discuss our feelings, families, community helpers, health, safety, good manners and the like to help them come to grips with their new lives at school. The children will learn the proper use and care of materials and equipment. They will become aware of proper health and safety habits through experiences each day. Perhaps most important, they will learn to respect the rights of others by sharing and caring as they interact with one another.

Science

Much of our science learning is spontaneous as the children show an interest in their world. We touch on seasons, days and months to help them understand divisions of time. We will discuss animals, plants, air, water, senses and much more in group lessons and through simple experiments and learning centers.

Art

Your children are exposed to many different media - paper, paste, crayons, scissors, cloth, cotton, clay, paint, yarn, "junk" (scraps, paper tubes, etc.) - to name a few. Using these, they learn to transfer their ideas to paper. They experiment as they work. They acquire the manipulative skills necessary to use the art media. Art activities help children develop muscular control and eye/hand coordination. Art provides opportunities for self-expression and emotional release. Working from the beginning to the end of a project fosters emotional growth. Your children will develop pride in achievement. They must accept the fact that not everything will turn out as planned. Finally, art enables them to accept gradually that trying and "process" are more important than the end result.

Music and Rhythms

Appreciation and enjoyment of all types of music is encouraged. We will listen to Christian music, classical music and children's songs, as well as sing about things important to children this age. Rhythms are done in a game-like manner. The children respond by marching, skipping, dancing and moving freely to a beat or the natural rhythm of words. We will also use rhythm instruments to create our own "band."

Language Activities

Books play a vital part in the development of young children. We have many opportunities for using language and literature to enrich the children's background of experiences.

Literature stimulates their imaginations. The children become aware of sounds. Auditory discrimination is strengthened. Their vocabularies are enriched. Literature and finger plays (poems with motions) develop children's memories. Literature helps develop children's ability to think and express their thoughts in sequence. Through pictures, visual perception is increased. Literature motivates them to tell their own stories and experiences. Desirable speech habits and patterns are developed. Children develop the habit of listening courteously while others speak. Dramatic play gives them an outlet for expressing inner feelings which might not find release another way.

Math

Math is included in daily lessons to help children learn to count, recognize numerals and understand number concepts. Teachers use table games and puzzles, calendar time, counting rhythms and many other methods to help make math fun for your boys and girls.
