Special classes are a wonderful enrichment to our Pre-k program and the girls absolutely love the time they get to spend with each teacher. These teachers do a wonderful job of including vocabulary, stories, songs, and music to support all that we are dong with the girls in the classroom. In music, the girls play instruments to accompany a song, listen and follow hand and body movements, and are always learning new songs about classroom studies and holidays. In Chinese and Spanish class they are learning colors, numbers, and lots of vocabulary which includes much of the same vocabulary we are introducing and using in our current study. In movement, the girls experience lots of gross motor development with all sorts of fun activities from basketball to obstacle courses requiring lots of skill and following rules as they play around the gym. We have even incorporated number recognition as we have run relays! We are so appreciative of Leandria Smith(music), Kenna Chelsoi(Spanish), Lynn Tian(Chinese), and Kelly Parsons(movement/PE. for their hard work and attention to details as they teach the girls so many wonderful things at such a young age. Thank you ladies! As always, Chinese and Spanish vocabulary are part of the Early Childhood website each week so that you are able to follow along with what is current in the classroom.
We thank everyone for the sweet Valentine treats and for remembering each of our birthdays this month. We appreciate each family, and the girls were so excited, as we were, to celebrate our birthdays with our sweet class!
