Our day always starts out with a warm greeting, I do not do set in stone time for our activities because I feel it is important to feel out the activities being done and don't like to rush kids to stick to a set schedule. We keep things moving without the rigidness of permanent time frames.
Tray Work - Each child will find a tray with their name on it and a personalized activity for them to work on. These activities either help them in areas they are struggling, a favorite activity or push them to learn more.
Circle Time - After a fun morning song we meet our classmates and teacher and then go over our calendar, days of the week, months of the year, seasons and weather and begin our lesson for the day. We also practice learning and writing our name.
Snack Time - A healthy snack to keep our minds and bodies going.
Centers - At this time we head to centers, usually 2 kids per center at a time and we rotate so each child gets plenty of time at each center that is open for the day.
Outdoor Play - We head outside to get some energy out and get some sun!
Arts & Crafts - After outdoor play we can sit down and create our master pieces.
Music and Movement - At the end of the day we get together to read a story, sing some songs and dance and move!
