What to look forward to in the Honeybees class…
The Bees classroom is an exciting next step for your three year-old.
They will be given many opportunities to grow in their independence, and to learn to do simple Self-Care tasks on their own. They will learn how to cooperate with others, and to express their feelings in appropriate ways through both child directed and teacher directed play. The school day will be extended to 1:00 pm, and a lunch time will be included.
As their Language and Communication skills are progressing, there will be opportunities to learn the letters in their name, to participate in conversations with their teacher and their friends, and to listen to and retell simple stories.
Many multi-sensory Literacy activities will be provided to enable your child to recognize the letters of the alphabet, and to associate those letters with corresponding sounds.
They will be so proud to demonstrate their Fine Motor Skills as they begin to trace their names, letters, and shapes. Scissor skills will be introduced with our spring enhanced beginner scissors.
Mathematics will be incorporated throughout the school day with calendar time, counting, sorting, patterning, and identifying shapes.
3 year olds love Science, and they will have many opportunities to investigate, observe, and to use trial and error to solve problems. They will learn about body parts and will explore the Five Senses.
Art and Music are incorporated throughout the curriculum, and there will be lots of time for singing, painting, coloring, imaginative play, and creating!
Finally, Spiritual Development will be a foundation, as we share with each child God’s love for them, and the importance of His Word through Bible stories, monthly Bible Verses, and a monthly focus on a Godly Character Trait.
