4's Extended Day
The 4’s Extended Day program is a balance of academic learning and child-directed exploration and play. Our goals are that children love to learn, love to come to school and upon completion of this program are successful at kindergarten entry.
4's Extended Day includes allthe learning objectives of the 4's program with the addition of directed reading instruction.
Reading: Reading is taught in a phonetic way, learning consonant and short vowel sounds. Students learn to print using traditional manuscript. Comprehension skills are strengthened.
Math: Skills addressed include: writing numerals, counting, making sets, patterns, puzzles and sequencing.
Science/Social Studies: Alternating units in science and social studies include lots of hand-on activities.
- Music and Art are a regular part of each school week.
- Children have time to play with blocks, art mediums, puzzles, books, and other manipulatives.
- Learning to share, take turns and problem solve are priorities.
