In Kindergarten class, we learn important age-appropriate concepts through integrated and interactive activities in quality learning centres, namely: numeracy, literacy, message and writing, playdough and fine motor, art and science, construction, dramatic play, reading, easel and puppet theatre.
We plan, build together, problem-solve intentionally or in-the-moment to create our vision. We begin to negotiate, create own rules of play, share ideas and look at the world from others point of view. We assign and accept roles and act them out. Sometimes taking on real-world roles, other times pretend roles. We strengthen our pre-reading and pre-writing skills before any word recognition, letter formation and handwriting skills.
We describe features of objects and discover things using our senses. We develop curiosity and observational skills, looking at similarities, differences and changes through exploration and investigation.
We involve parents in ‘show and tell’, projects, making playdough, and reading stories in class.
We build a hotel.
