Welcome to Preschool Room B! We prepare the children for a smooth transition into kindergarten. We strive to prepare each child academically, socially, and emotionally. Our desire is to meet each child's individual needs, while maintaining a consistent standard of learning for the entire classroom. We incorporate math, science, writing skills, art, and music into our daily lesson plans. The class will also work on number recognition, finger plays and cooking activities.

What Do We Do in Preschool Room B?
Circle time is a group gathering during which we share our ideas, plans, and observations. Circle time activities are designed to stimulate children's thinking, and enrich their social skills, and expand their attention spans.
Large-motor activities give children the opportunity to use their muscles, as well as their imaginations as they engage in fun, healthy exercises, such as: running, jumping, and climbing.
Fine-motor activities help improve small-muscle development and hand-eye coordination. Some common items found in the fine-motor/manipulative area includes puzzles, beads and laces, pegboards, crayons, and scissors.
Art activities help children creatively express their thoughts and feelings. They help reinforce fine-motor skills and concept development in areas such as colors, shapes, and size relationships.
Dramatic-play activities help children express themselves, practice life skills, improve social skills, increase self-esteem, build vocabulary, and solve problems.
Music activities promote children's listening skills, creative expression, and social skills. In music, children can explore sound, volume, tempo, and rhythm.
Science activities offer children many hands-on opportunities for observation, exploration, investigation, making predictions, and experimentation.
Block play gives children experience with many different concepts, such as shape and size discrimination, spatial relationships, number skills, balance, organization, cause and effect, and classification. Cooperative play skills, problem solving, and creativity are also promoted in block play.
Story time is designed to help children develop an appreciation and enjoyment of literature. Reading activities enhance children's vocabulary and comprehension skills, and also expand their knowledge base.
We also concentrate on one letter of the alphabet every week. To find out what letter we are on, please look at the lesson plans that are located on the bulletin board in our classrooms. We will work on recognizing this letter, sounding it out, and beginning to write it.
The Preschool Room B classroom is a busy classroom with a lot of activity and learning going on everyday. Our staff work diligently to prepare your children for success in kindergarten.
