Our Pre-kindergarten students are learning to work collaboratively toward common goals, “let’s do it together!” We are focusing on kindergarten readiness skills by strengthening our Pre-K students Gross Motor and Fine Motor skills. Our teachers intentionally use multi-sensory approaches to handwriting and motor lab activities to increase readiness. At Phase Family Learning Center we focus multiple times a day on interactive science and math principles, and emerging reading and writing skills. Our teachers guide our students to develop these emerging skills through journaling, sight words, captioning artwork, writing notes to others, and re-reading favorite, high-interest books. We consider art an experimental process too as children investigate their ideas, materials and tools, making choices and sharing their work with others.
