Welcome to our 3’s Room
At Country Knolls Preschool we aim for each child to reach their full potential in all developmental areas; social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language.
Each child will develop as an individual and as a member of a group. Our program is set up to encourage all of these qualities, including allowing time for children to choose their own experiences, enjoy free play and be involved in the joy and excitement of an active program.We feel it is important for the child to express themselves through dramatic play, creative art, blocks, workbooks, writing and water table activities.
Zoo Phonics is introduced in the 3’s class, which teaches all aspects of language arts. The principle of Zoo Phonics maximizes understanding, memory, utilization and transferences to all areas of reading, and spelling in a playful and concrete manner.
Free Play: This is an essential aspect of individual growth. It is a time for the child to choose a center; to paint, read, listen to music, play with blocks or puzzles, pretend dress up or “work” in the kitchen.
Puppet and talent shows. Guest Speakers and Holiday Celebrations
Show & Tell: Coincides with the weekly theme. Each child will get in front of the class to gain confidence in speaking to their peers and expressing themselves.
Circle Time: The children will come together to learn colors, shapes, days of the week, months of the year, numbers, letters, sounds, and weather. Daily discussions will be held about different topics each day.
Outdoor Playtime is an important part of physical development: Weather permitting there is a 30 minute outdoor playtime.
Children are encouraged toenjoy free play and be involved in the joy and excitement of an active program.
Children enjoy music twice a week and Zumba once a week
