Kids at Work
“Work” is fun in the four-weekly mini-units Dinosaur Bones, Pat-A-Cake, At the Pet Shop, and Detectives for Hire. Each activity is designed to foster early learning concepts, such as letter and sound recognition, phonemic awareness, measurement, counting, and shape recognition. From digging for fossils to tracking down missing letters, this unit offers multi-level activities appropriate for all early learners.
In the afternoon portion of the Kindergarten day, students unpack their sleeping bags for quiet time as they listen to nature sounds and engage in physical movement activities focused around the theme of camping. Students develop cooperation skills as they investigate manipulatives and games during Backpack Explorations. From creating s’mores to sharing campfire stories, young campers enjoy their stay at Kamp Kindergarten.
