Miss Cynthia’s Morning Pre-school Class
Our preschool program curriculum is based on weekly themes. Some of the activities of the day include:
Circle Time: During circle time children say hello to their friends and teachers. They imitate gross motor movements to songs such as Welcome Song and The Days of the Week. We review the calendar, our ABC’s and numbers each day. We stretch, count, and talk about our schedule for the day.
Center Time: Children break into small groups to participate in activities based on our themes. The activities are usually hands on and include using fine and gross motor skills, sensory activities, projects and games. Many of our projects can be seen hanging up in our classroom or on the bulletin boards.
Specials: Our students attend art, library, music, and physical education. They have a lot of fun creating beautiful art projects, listening to exciting stories, learning new songs, and playing new games.
Lunch: Our students eat lunch in the cafeteria with the older students. They learn how to carry their lunch boxes, open them and eat their lunches in the appropriate order.
Miss Cynthia’s Afternoon Pre-school Class
Story Time: Each day we sing a monthly poem and then we read a story based on our weekly theme. Children demonstrate their comprehension skills by answering a variety of questions.
Discrete Trial Work Time: Each student has a program designed just for them. Discrete Trial teaching is a special way to teach children with autism. The children learn things like gross and fine motor imitation, receptive and expressive identification of letters and numbers, sorting items by color, size, and category, matching, reading, and counting. The children receive positive reinforcement throughout their work session.
Group Time: These are activities that incorporate the whole class and enable the children to follow directions in the larger group.
Specials: We attend the specials of art, music and gym and each week we go to the library to get books we can read in class.
Snack: Every day we enjoy snack time where we share a common snack and socialize with our friends. This happens during AM and PM class.
Recess: We go outside each day (weather permitting) during both AM and PM time for recess.
