CLASS 2 (AGE 3-4)



 

This is our ages 3-4 year old class. The morning starts with circle time where students gather around to sing songs, read a story, learn shapes, colors and basic numbers/sounds.

After circle time it is toilet training time. Toilet training and taking care of their personal needs such as washing their hands is still a part of their education in this class. While children are expected to fully trained in this class some children will have difficulty so we will assist and help them train them.


KEY LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Art projects, play dough and participating in cooking activities is also part of the schedule. Students start to learn 1st and 2nd box of color tablets (see the Montessori explanation), shapes (square, circle etc), basic numbers from 1-10 (depending on the child’s level), introduction to sounds (phonics). A fun part of this class is the practical life exercises, such as pouring, spooning, and transferring to develop fine motor skills. They also work with tools, such as knob and knob less cylinders for their concentration.¬†
