Our students arrive and begin with free play. The classroom is set up with interesting centers and daily challenges. After everyone has arrived the class gathers for circle time to learn about the letter of the week, calendar skills (concepts of time), weather, flag salute, social skills (learning names, etc.) and each have jobs for the day to participate. The students return to free play while a few at a time are encouraged to participate in the daily craft/project based on the weekly letter or theme. They also will have a handwriting opportunity at some point as well.
