*Morning Meeting: each day begins with a morning greeting when we acknowledge each child through song. We encourage the children to share stories or events and talk about the calendar, weather, and their jobs for the day. We end morning meeting by introducing all the various center activities set up around the classroom for the children to choose.
*Free Play: children move to the different classroom centers which include art (various media), block play, table toys, dramatic play, sensory tables etc.
*Circle Time: introduction to weekly theme with follow up activities. (Kindergarten readiness activities for 4’s) Themes are designed to introduce new concepts and skills while fostering literacy, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities.
*Art….relating to theme which promotes creativity and self expression

*Story time (usually related to theme)
