Room 1 is home to the Pre-K Counts Program. The Pre-K Counts program provides educational learning opportunities for a group of 17 three to four year old children. September through June the children are welcomed in to the classroom to learn, grow, and play with their classmates in the different learning centers throughout the room. The children are offered many learning experiences through independent and teacher guided learning center exploration, as well as small group teacher guided educational activities. 

 

December was a busy month in the classroom. The children were getting ready for our annual Holiday Show at the end of the month while also still learning new concepts in the room. 

We spent two weeks exploring the world of Nursery Rhymes. The children enjoyed working with both familiar and new Nursery Rhymes to learn concepts such as sequencing, directional words, and measuring. 

       

The children made spiders and webs to recreate the Rhyme “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” using the straw painting technique to blow the paint in to the shape of a spider and marble painting to make a web. This activity was used to build fine motor skills by keeping the marble on the tray, scientific skills by predicting if the straw painting would look like a spider and mathematical skills by using directional words to put the pieces together. 

  

The children also made muffins to end our “Do You Know the Muffin Man?” unit. This activity was used to build the children’s fine motor abilities by pouring and mixing ingredients together from one container to another. It was also used to build the mathematics skills by measuring ingredients to make a product.
