Arrival Time

The children and their caregivers will be greeted by the teacher and encouraged to select an alphabet mat to sit on. Caregivers are encouraged to discuss the letter on their child’s mat and their own. This is a good time to talk about different things that begin with that letter and the letter sound.

Intro Songs

Each class will begin with the same hello song and a movement alphabet song using the mats. It will provide a consistent way to start the class and the repetition will give the children an opportunity to learn the songs.

Finger Plays, Movement Songs and Instruments

Each week we will have fun with new finger plays, movement songs and different instruments. We will expose children to a variety of music. We will enjoy songs from around the world as well as traditional favorites. Movement songs will get everyone up and moving. Children will introduced to new instruments every week and will be given ample opportunity for exploration.

Parachute Time

Parachutes provide endless fun! We will enjoy different songs and games using the parachute each week.

Calming Down Time

We will re-group at this time to relax, settle down and offer the children a chance to reconnect with their caregivers. We will use this opportunity to sing a quiet, calm song.

Good bye Song

We will conclude each class with the same good bye song each week to provide consistency and repetition. It will be a variation of the hello song for continuity. Once we are finished each child will be given a stamp from the teacher.
