We learn in hands-on and play centers, small groups, and large groups. Each morning, we start our day off with a whole group lesson and then the students play in various centers. Our classroom has an art center, a writing center, a math center, a library center, a puzzle center, a block center, and dress up center, a house keeping center, a fine motor center and iPad center. During these centers, students are pulled for small groups. We also get playtime either outside when the weather is nice or in our school’s little theater when the weather is not nice. Our Pre-K students get to go to five activities a week, which include Art/Music, Computers, Guidance, Library, and PE.
In the fall, we get to go visit a pumpkin patch, usually Falcon Ridge Farm in Toone, TN with the 5 other Pre-K classes in Hardin County. Students get to bring home a pumpkin to decorate with their families. This year, we got to watch a pig race and it was a blast! There are also some cool playgrounds, a corn box, and a several animals to pet!
