Each day at Annie's Alphabet, we create, move, sing, discuss, observe, and read. We do all of this through play.
We are constantly working on the recognition and sounds of letters and numbers through games, chants, flannel stories, sensory materials, puzzles, and songs that may or may not be related to the theme in the room. We also work on colors, shapes, sizes, large motor skills (like hopping, climbing, playing ball, etc) fine motor skills (drawing, stringing beads, tearing, cutting. gluing) math, science, language, reading, writing, art, social skills, and most of all fun!
We go outside twice a day, for about an hour or more each time. Even when it is lightly raining- children LOVE puddles! When it is pouring down rain or overly windy, we either stay on the porch or find ways inside to exercise our bodies.
We play hard! Make sure to dress your child in daycare wear- aka- things that can get paint on them!
