Our curriculum is rich in literature as it focuses on popular children’s books related to the monthly theme. Scholastic Unit Plans are used to create thematic lessons. We utilize interactive and engaging teaching methods in the areas of language arts, math, science, music, art, gymnastics, Bible, foreign language, and best of all, we love to play! In order to develop the area of the brain that is responsible for higher-order thinking, children need to have rich experiences that stimulate all of their senses. Play is the path to those experiences that engage children’s senses and provide the foundation for future learning. In our classroom we provide learning stations in which children learn though teacher guided play. The teachers use scaffolding to enrich the children’s current knowledge. They supply words for what the children are doing and ask questions that provoke thinking. The y participate with children in conversation and teach them to play with sounds, words and ideas. They take on a role and play it with humor and gusto. They add interesting fun words like “excavator,” “camouflage,” and “scrumptious” that add to children’s vocabulary.
