During the theme activity time, your child will engage in various activities to learn about the scheduled monthly theme. 

For example: The theme for December is “Our Community.”  The teacher may set her classroom each day as a different place in our community and then do activities that pertain to that place. If a bakery is selected the activity may be making a special treat.

 

Gross Motor Skills Activity (Gym)

The children will start with music to “warm up” and may use scarves, ribbons, hoops or balls to move with. They will then play a game that revolves around the letter of the week, the number, the color and/or the shape of the month. The gym games may also involve the season or holiday. The activities may include jumping, hopping, skipping or running – all important to enhance their gross motor skills.

Outside Play

Snack / Bathroom / Story

(In Their Classroom with Their Main Teacher)

During this time your child will have story time. After story the children will take turns going to the bathroom and washing their hands. After their hands are washed they will then eat snack which is provided from home. We encourage healthy snacks and teach the children the importance of eating healthy to grow strong. The children learn to open up their snack, clean up after themselves and put their lunch boxes away when they are finished eating. They are also learning to use their table manners when eating with their friends.

 

Lunch

Lunch is provided from home. The teacher will make sure that the main part of lunch is eaten before the children move on to any snacks that you may have sent for them. The teacher will also make sure that hands are washed before they sit to eat. When the children are finished with their lunch they must ask to be excused and then they will clean up after themselves
