THREE TO FIVE-YEAR-OLDS' CLASS (3.5 years - 5 years)
(Ratio 10:1) Children will be taught by classroom teachers who will introduce and reinforce monthly concepts through centers time in AO Discover! (rotating monthly based on concept) and whole group time. The classroom teachers will also teach an active lesson in music, dance or fine arts each day based on the monthly concept. Students will have a STEM lesson each day in AO Discover!, guided by our STEM teacher, which will introduce slightly more abstract ideas and ask children to reflect on what they've learned, to make connections between new experiences and prior knowledge, or to create something new based on what they've learned. Children will begin a STEM journal of pictures and/or words to give each child time to reflect on what s/he has learned and to practice fine motor skills. Our language teacher extends students' vocabulary in foreign language. Children in this class will have increased responsibility as they make choices about their learning and practice authentic skills.
