Welcome to 4 year old Preschool!
I am so excited to begin our year and learn more about each student. In our classroom we learn so much each day through active hands-on learning. We will grow and expand our knowledge both academically and socially by learning to work together each day! Each day we will have large group learning, small group work, and learning through play. The students will develop knowledge of letter identification and sounds, story comprehension, rhyming, and so much more! We will work on our basic math skills in small groups each day to attach our learning meaningfully in a hands-on manner. Our religion lessons will help us to learn bible stories and about showing our love for Jesus each day.
