Preparing Your Child for Elementary School and Beyond!
So, what’s a day like at school? Take a look in our classroom to see children engaged in many activities – alone, with peers or with the teacher. During a typical day, children arrive to play on the playground or enjoy a few minutes of puzzles and games. Then it’s off to “Circle Time” where students update the daily calendar, discuss the weather and more.
Students then have time to explore the classroom’s numerous activity centers such as writing, library, housekeeping, blocks, manipulatives, and art. During this time they take turns engaging one-on-one with the teachers and co-op parents through specialized daily projects.
After the daily center activity, it’s time for self expression and creativity via dancing, singing, jumping and wiggling! Did we mention this helps to burn some energy and begins to develop healthy exercise for your children? Everyone is encouraged to participate, but not forced. We understand some children are shy or cautious and our experience has been if we give students a little bit of time to take in the environment, they will adjust and enjoy this new experience.
Hungry? You bet! With all of that energy release, it’s time for a healthy snack and drink served by the co-op parent(s). And, if someone is celebrating a birthday, a special snack may be brought in to share with friends. Please check with the school regarding any food allergies that may be in the classroom.
Although burning energy is fun, children need to learn how to sit quietly and listen. While co-op parents clean up the snacks, Miss Stephanie reads a story and encourages students to answer questions in an effort to develop their reading comprehension and listening skills.
After story time is over, the children are allowed to run and play in the playground. Energy is spent and friendships are developed. Parents coming to pick up their children enjoy chatting for a while especially during the nice warm days in spring and letting the kids play with their friends for a while longer. During inclement weather, the children play games in the circle time room or do team building games in the church hall.
All in all, any day at Mayo Nursery School is a fun-filled day of learning through play!
