Our 3s are growing in independence, improving social skills, and expanding vocabulary to develop pre-reading readiness. Learning takes place in a positive, center-based atmosphere and includes new experiences such as easel painting and cutting with scissors. The Handwriting Without Tears program is utilized to develop fine motor skills and letter/number recognition and formation. Children continue to be read to daily and crafts are completed one-on-one with the teachers to encourage individuality. Our 3s attend music and movement classes, story time, and chapel with Father Jack. Highlights of the year include our Manners Breakfast, visits from special guests during Community Helpers Week, participation in the school-wide spring music program, and our Mother’s Day Tea and Art Show.
Units of study include, but are not limited to:
Seasons and Holidays
Senses/All About Me
Counting and Cutting
