3AG: 4-year-olds MWF mornings
Welcome to the Green Room Fours Program!
3AG Daily Schedule:
Themes: Our theme for the first 2 weeks of school is All About Me, My Family and School and Friends. Our themes for September and coming months will be listed on the School Calendar.
In September, one of our themes was "Trees and Leaves." Our Letter of the Week was "E" and the Number of the Week was "5." The children listened to the stories related to trees and leaves. Throughout the activities during this theme, the children became aware of the parts of a tree, different kinds of trees, and the importance of trees. They also discovered different kinds of leaves by using the magnifying glasses to observe the leaves. They learned, traced, and played fun games with the letter "E" and the number "5." For sharing that Friday, the children brought something that begins with "E"and/ or something related to our theme. As with any of our sharing, if your child would like to bring in something else that interests him/her, that would also be fine. ALL FUTURE THEMES ARE ON OUR WEBSITE UNDER "SCHOOL CALENDAR," SO PLEASE REFER THERE FOR OUR ONGOING THEMES.
Get involved in the classroom! We invite you to sign up to make playdough, and to come in to share your family's culture. You might like to read a book with the children or bring items to share from your family's traditions. We also have the Star of the Week program in the fours. When a child is Star of the Week, the parents may come into the classroom to help the child talk about his/her picture collage, read books, do a special project with the children, and/or share their family culture or hobbies.
Sharing: Every Friday, the children bring something for sharing according to the letter of the week for show and tell. Each child talks about what they brought for sharing in their small groups. Your child's sharing may be anything they are interested in sharing and/or according to our weekly classroom theme or letter of the week.
Birthdays: Birthdays are a special day for each child in our class. If you have something that you would like to share with our class (e.g., reading some of your child’s favorite books or doing special crafts) you are welcome to share these activities during your child's classroom birthday celebration. Please let us know in advance, at least one week before your child's classroom birthday, so we can make proper changes to that day's class schedule.
If you wish to bring a special treat (e.g., fruit or cupcakes), please tell us in advance and show us the ingredients or the label for your special snack. On your child's birthday day, you can drop off the snack at the drop-off time and come back later at the circle time to read books. We have “open snack” in our class from 9:15-10am.
Our classmates have the following food allergies:
For those children whose birthdays are in the summer, if you wish, you can choose the date during the school year on which you want to celebrate it. If not, we will celebrate all the summer birthdays in April or May.
