English Language Arts (E L A)
Our E L A is rich in children’s literature. We incorporate classic Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales as a part of our curriculum. We learn about the elements of story such as characters and settings. The students learn the letters of the alphabet: capital, lower case, and letter sounds. TK prepares the students to begin reading in kindergarten.
Our math program introduces patterns, shapes, and numbers 1-30. In TK we learn how to count, read, and write these numbers. We use a variety of math manipulatives, ten frames, and math journals to connect math into our daily lives.
Fine Motor/ Writing
Fine motor activities, playdough, and building with manipulatives are a big part of our daily activities. The writing component is through a program called, Handwriting Without Tears. We use the preschool and TK versions.
TK students are natural scientists. We perform small experiments in the classroom to find out more about the world around us.
Our religion program promotes kindness, sharing, empathy, and being mindful of others. Our program incorporates weekly gospel magazines called Seeds to learn about Jesus and our world.
The Transitional Kindergarten day is from 8:30 AM - 2:45 PM. We also offer an aftercare program, which is available until 6:00 PM.
