4’s (Leones) – Classroom Goals & Objectives
- Our four-year-old preschool program has a well-balanced focus on the preparation for Kindergarten and the skills needed to succeed.
- Our teacher works closely with small groups of children and tailor instruction to their learning needs.
- The pre-Kindergarten area is set up in a way that students have reinforcement of the concepts being emphasized such as letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Access to literature material, learning games, manipulatives
- The start of our day is Circle Time. Teachers and children officially greet one another, discuss the theme for the week, and review the plan for the day. Students are then divided into small groups and participate in Academic Rotations through different learning centers. The teacher conducts a small group reading or math lesson while the rest of the children rotate to the centers for further exploratory play and practice.
