Miss Jeanine's Morning Pre-school Class

Circle Time: In circle time the children learn to say hello to their teachers and classmates. They imitate gross motor movements to songs such as, “Green Grass Grew All Around,” and songs that rhyme. Students will be exposed to Calendar, letter sounds, numbers and counting activities during Circle Time as well as other developmentally appropriate activities. Our circle time is literacy based and usually ends with a book of the week. Please look forward to our list of favorite books at Back To School Night!

AM only/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. We are a positive behavioral support environment.

Lunch: Our students eat lunch in the cafeteria with the older students, with teacher support. They learn how to carry their lunch boxes or school lunches, open their containers and eat their lunches in the appropriate manner.

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.

Miss Jeanine's Afternoon Pre-school Class

Our preschool programs curriculum is based on weekly themes. Some of the activities of the day include:

Circle Time: In circle time the children learn to say hello to their teachers and classmates. They imitate gross motor movements to the song, The More We Get Together. We salute the flag and talk about the calendar.  We have a weekly letter and word, while we count the days of school up to the 100th day. At the end of circle, we do a song that enables us to exercise and reach our goal of being healthy and interacting with our teachers and friends.

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 “Wh” questions, for example, “Who was in the story?” (Where, When, What). Please look for our list of favorite books at Back To School Night.

Center Time: Children break into small groups to participate in “Area’s” Each area will be teacher supported. Activities will include Emerging Math and Literacy skill work as well as specific cognitive objectives related to their Individual Education Plan.  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.We “Play,” a lot. It is a great way to learn.

Group Time: These are activities that incorporate the whole class and enable the children to follow directions in the larger group. One of our favorite activities to do is paint! We do get messy in school!

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.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to email me. We will also be using a composition book for communication during the week. The best way to reach me is through text or email. I am available for questions at anytime.

See you soon!
