Online Preschool Academics
Learn2Grow Preschool is focused on developing your child's academic skills to best prepare them for Kindergarten. Our goal is for the student to grow academically but to have a blast at the same time. We accomplish this by incorporating each of the elements below in a way that reinforces the age appropriate learning objectives for that class.
Examples of the specific skills our online preschool curriculum will work to build and master are listed below. As you can see from the guidance the CDC has posted here, our program significantly exceeds these guidelines while also recognizing that each child matures and develops at their own pace. Keeping our classroom size small allows for the opportunity to make decisions on the fly that accommodate each students learning style.
Letters & Sounds
We incorporate letter recognition and sounds into nearly every aspect of class as its forms the foundation of literacy. Developing these skills give our students a great advantage for Kindergarten. In the course of a school year, will will cover the entire alphabet (lower and uppercase).
Story time is critical for both building vocabulary and recognizing sight words. Choosing engaging books is a must and we have a vast library that your teacher will tailor to each specific lesson. As letter sounds are mastered, we will incorporate blending of sounds to make words.
Numbers & Counting
Recognizing numbers and their concepts are introduced via hands on activities. Students will learn patterns, order, addition and an introduction to subtraction.
Our weekly science experiments are very hands on and something our students certainly get excited for. Experiments explore aspects such as fluids, mixing, reactions and plant growth. Doing science projects in class also builds fine motor skills, communication and cause and effect.
Ensuring your child is using proper pencil grip is paramount and we will focus on mastering this. While we continue to work on this, our handwriting curriculum will teach students letter formation, building words and ultimately sentences.
Music & Movement
Music and movement is used as an exciting brain break for our students letting them get up and sing, dance and move. It also helps develop gross motor skills and keeps kids engaged.
Art is used extensively to keep kids engaged and having fun while letting them express themselves. The majority our activities focus on introducing STEM themed concepts that build the foundation of a lifetime of learning.
Each day of the week has its own learning theme where we emphasize a specific topic. This allows for more class time to incorporate fun, interactive activities and provides a routine that helps students become comfortable and engaged.
On Monday's we hone our math skills with numbers and counting.
Tuesday's are used to focus on literacy related activities.
Science Wednesday's are always fun with experiments!
Art Thursday's are when we can explore our creativeness.
Hooray it's Fun Friday! Learning games, show & tell and more!
